EFCF 2022 - Evaluation of a Hybrid SOFC & Battery Genset for Cruise Ship Applications

Matthias Metten, from German Aerospace Center (DLR), Institute of Engineering Thermodynamics, will present the Evaluation of a hybrid SOFC & battery genset for cruise ship applications at EFCF 2022 conference that will be held in Lucerne in Switzerland on 5th – 8th July 2022. The conference paper was prepared together with other NAUTILUS project partners - Cem Ünlübayir from RWTH Aachen University and Stefan Diethelm from SOLIDpower SA.

EFCF 2022 - Comparative Thermodynamic Analysis of Marine SOFC System for Alternative Fuels

Berend van Veldhuizen from Delft University of Technology (TUD) will present a part of the Nautilus project at EFCF 2022 conference that will be held in Lucerne in Switzerland on 5th – 8th July 2022.

His presentation on 6th July at Stack & System Modelling session (session B08) will focus on Comparative thermodynamic analysis of marine SOFC system for alternative fuels.

EFCF - NAUTILUS workshop

Nautilus workshop

The NAUTILUS project is a research project that aims at the development of a low-emission energy system for large passenger ships. The novel system will take care of all heat and power needs of the cruise vessel. The concept consists of a Solid Oxide Fuel Cell (SOFC)-battery hybrid genset integrated with existing Internal Combustion Engine (ICE) generators.

NAUTILUS - Low Emission Propulsion System for Passengers’ Ships

All over the world, we are witnessing consequences of climate change, such as melting glaciers, bleaching corals, draughts, floods and extreme weather fluctuations. Moreover, air pollution has a negative impact on human health such as the spread of cardiovascular diseases, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, cancer or asthma. Besides the impact on human health, acidic rains threaten the natural environment of many animal species and endanger biodiversity.
