The Alfa Laval E-PowerPack converts waste heat directly into clean electrical power, giving marine vessels a plug-and-play efficiency upgrade for meeting sustainability requirements. Based on Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology, this compact and easily installed module can make use of a wide variety of gas and liquid heat sources on board. It thus provides an all-in-one solution that lowers fuel costs, reduces emissions and shrinks carbon footprint.
Power your way to energy savings and compliance
- Convert onboard waste heat directly into electrical power
- Increase fuel efficiency
- Reduce emissions and carbon footprint
- Improve Energy Efficiency Index (EEDI/EEXI)
- Improve Carbon Intensity Indicator (CII)
The E-PowerPack is a game-changing advance in marine sustainability. It turns waste heat into freely available power, generating electricity from both high-temperature and low-temperature sources. Heat in the engine exhaust gas accounts for 50% of the energy from combusted fuel, and further energy can be recovered from sources like jacket cooling water – or the excess steam resulting from the switch to low-sulphur fuel.
By reducing fuel consumption, emissions and carbon footprint, the E-PowerPack provides a cost-saving tool for meeting sustainability requirements. No matter which fuel is used, it improves both EEDI/EEXI and CII. This enables vessels to achieve the necessary index and maintain a favourable rating for longer.
Compact and modular, E-PowerPack units with a net electrical output of up to 100 kW or 200 kW can be combined in a larger system.
The Alfa Laval E-PowerPack launch webinar is now available on demand. Discover this game-changing advance in marine sustainability, which converts waste heat into electrical power. Broadcasting from the Alfa Laval Test & Training Centre, experts Danny Ingemann, Jean Charles Lecuyer and Dimitrios Kampanis explain the E-PowerPack technology and why it improves EEDI/EEXI & CII. Find out how you can power your way to energy savings and compliance.
How it works
Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology - Alfa Laval E-PowerPack
The E-PowerPack uses Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology to turn waste heat into clean electrical power. By means of a liquid-gas phase change, it can generate power from both high-temperature and low-temperature heat sources. Please find the ORC technology explained by Mr. Dimitrios Kampanis.
Introducing the Alfa Laval E-PowerPack – a game-changing advance in marine sustainability
As the marine industry works to decarbonize, Alfa Laval is at the forefront of preparing technologies to make it happen. Now the first of many new energy solutions is coming to fruition: the Alfa Laval E-PowerPack. Able to convert waste heat directly into electrical power, the E-PowerPack reduces fuel consumption and CO2 emissions – creating a simple, cost-saving tool for complying with new sustainability requirements.
