Coal carrier tests binary cycle power generation

CORONA YOUTHFUL, one of K Line’s new 91,000 dwt type coal carriers, was delivered by Oshima Shipbuilding Co today (1 February 2019) with a binary cycle power generation system installed.

 

The operational trial will aim to confirm the performance and durability at sea of the binary cycle power generation system, which is a waste heat recovery electric power generation system utilising compression heat by scavenging air from the main engine, which, in turn, contributes to reduction in fuel oil consumption in the diesel generator engine.

 

K Line said it is continuously attempting to obtain greater efficiency in its operations, as well as further reductions in CO2 emissions and environmental pollutants, in accordance with the Japanese carrier’s ENVIRONMENTAL VISION 2050 initiative.

 

“This innovative binary cycle power generation system is considered as one of the efficient systems to help us achieve our goals by 2050,” said K Line.
