Enhance onboard energy efficiency with our innovative technologies

From waste heat to added value

Alfa Laval’s boiler technology can help save up to 14% on energy use and carbon emissions by maximizing waste heat recovery from main and auxiliary engines. This technology benefits both the bottom line and the environment, without compromising onboard safety.

Steam and hot water

Efficient heating & cooling for peak performance

Alfa Laval marine heat exchangers draw on more than 100 years of innovation in heating and cooling technology. With our dedicated R&D, expect the highest performance and extended service life through optimal heat transfer and reduced fouling.

Water and fire

Real savings and reduced emissions with air bubbles

Alfa Laval OceanGlide is a unique air lubrication system that saves 8–12% fuel with fluidic technology. It creates a layer of micro air bubbles under the vessel, reducing friction and drag. This improves ship’s efficiency, lowers fuel costs, supports decarbonization and reduces marine noise.

Turning waste heat into clean electricity

Reduce fuel consumption, emissions and improve EEDI/EEXI and CII by converting onboard waste heat directly into electrical power with our advanced heat recovery based on Organic Rankine Cycle (ORC) technology. The power can be generated from both high & low-temperature sources on board.
