Samsung Heavy develops generator that reduces CO2 emissions of ships
Samsung Heavy Industries Co. has developed the world’s first thermoelectric generator in cooperation with LG Innotek Co. that reduces fuel cost and carbon dioxide emissions of ships.
The eco-friendly generator produces electricity by being mounted on the surface of equipment generating heat, such as ship engines.
Samsung Heavy will apply the device to 174,000-cubic meter LNG carriers to be delivered to Japanese shipping company NYK Line in December.
The South Korean shipbuilder has been developing eco-friendly alternatives.
In late September, Samsung Heavy inked a joint development program (JDP) agreement with Wartsila to develop ammonia-fulled vessels with 4-stroke auxiliary engines available for new-build projects.
Ammonia is regarded as among the carbon-free marine fuels that may replace oil.
