The propulsion system of a large passenger ship is a complex system that is responsible to cater all heat and power needs of a vessel itself, including the hotel complex.
Stricter emissions targets, especially on CO2 posed by international organisations are encouraging ship owners and ship constructors to innovate. Indeed, such innovation can be done by utilizing other fuels than heavy fuel oil (HFO).
The NAUTILUS project will be represented at the AABC conference in San Diego, USA by colleague Nico Manteuffel from RWTH. At his poster he will present a "Toolchain for efficient implementation and evaluation of BMS algorithms from Matlab-Simulink on an embedded system."
