Waste Heat Recovery System

This system has already been in use for quite some time now, but making it more efficient can reduce the fuel consumption of a ship drastically, even up to 14% of the total consumption. The waste heat from the exhaust gases can be utilised to heat and generate steam which in turn can be used for heating the cargo area, accommodation area and so forth.
