The pair received the award for their paper ‘Making shipping greener: comparative study between organic fluids and water for Rankine cycle waste heat recovery’ published in the JMET- Volume 14, Number 2
The Institute of Marine Engineering, Science and Technology’s Denny Medal (JMET) and certificate is awarded annually to the most worthy paper published by the IMarEST in the Journal of Marine Engineering & Technology. The Denny Medal has been awarded by the IMarEST since 1893 and is one of the marine engineering institute’s most prestigious awards.
The pair’s study focused on the concept of managing waste heat energy from the exhaust gases of the main engines of ships, set in the context of marine environmental rules requiring greener vessels. The largest source of energy loss in ships is found in the propulsion system and harvesting those losses increase a ship’s efficiency.
The medal was presented to Professor Greig and Dr Suarez de la Fuente at the IMarEST’s 114th annual dinner at the City of London’s Guildhall earlier this month.
The IMarEST is the largest global institute for marine professionals.
