Summary

With the increasing growth of the LNG market, using LNG as a fuel becomes more appealing to ship owners and operators. More ships of various types on order-book choose LNG fuelled propulsion systems to replace conventional HFO and marine diesel fuelled system. This study proposes a new waste energy power generation system to recover the exhaust heat of marine engines and use the cryogenic energy from LNG fuel evaporation systems. The system is built on a main cycle, i.e. an Organic Rankine cycle (ORC), with a bottom cycle with the LNG direct expansion process. The selected working fluid operates in the temperature range of -104 to 200℃. The operating data from a real LNG fuelled case ship is applied as the input data in the dynamic simulation using the software - Siemens LMS Imagine.Lab AMESim. Multiple working conditions are studied in the simulation in terms of the different fuel consumption levels of the case ship. The simulation of the proposed system shows a significant improvement in thermal efficiency and power production in comparison to the existing waste energy power generation system on board the case ship.
