Scanship AS is now, in cooperation with TEGma AS, offering a unique thermoelectric technology for producing electricity directly from waste heat onboard cruise ships. “With this solution, we can improve the energy efficiency onboard, reducing use of fossil fuels and improving the overall environmental performance”; says Scanship’s CEO Henrik Badin in a statement.
Scanship AS has entered into an agreement with the Norwegian company TEGma AS which has developed the thermoelectric system. TEGma’s thermoelectric system produces electricity directly from waste heat, using a unique and proprietary system involving no emissions, no noise, no moving parts – and with no maintenance required. TEGma AS is owned by Scatec AS, known for its multiple successful ventures within renewable energy and advanced materials. The TEGma solution is already in use onboard a Scandinavian ferry and has received Approval in Principle by DNV GL for use on ships. “TEGma is proud to contribute to reduced emissions from the shipping industry. We’re looking forward to rolling out our thermoelectric technology in the cruise ship industry together with Scanship”, says TEGma’s CTO Torleif Tollefsen.
Scanship AS, the waste and wastewater management leader within the cruise ship industry, is now integrating TEGma’s solution on their own systems and a portfolio of engine waste heat solutions. Through this collaboration, Scanship offers environmentally friendly solutions incomparable to anything seen in today’s market.
The first Scanship products to incorporate TEGma’s solutions are maritime incinerators. Under favorable conditions all electricity needed to operate the incinerator can be extracted from the waste heat in the flue gas, while maintaining IMO MARPOL’s emission requirements.
