A method for the recovery of waste heat energy exhausted by a main propulsion diesel engine and ships service electrical power diesel engines in a naval vessel is proposed and evaluated. Waste heat recovery boilers and steam system components are designed for the recovery of the exhausted diesel energy as a means of improving the fuel efficiency of diesel engines for shipboard application. The waste heat recovery analysis evaluates the main propulsion diesel engine operating at 50% maximum continuous rating and ships service electrical power diesel engines operating at 75% maximum continuous rating. Waste heat boilers and steam system components are sized and a possible propulsion plant arrangement is presented.
