About this project

Economic considerations and environmental restrictions drive the demand for better energy management onboard. Depending on the ship type, about 40–50% of the heat energy is currently disposed to the environment. Most of the lost heat energy is low (< 100 °C), which is more challenging to convert into valuable energy such as electricity. In port areas, ships are one of the largest air polluters (CO2, SOx, NOx, particles). The HEMOS project aims to develop and verify a holistic and dynamic on-demand heat energy system concept to utilise the otherwise lost waste heat energy.
