Final Report - HERCULES (High efficiency engine R&D on combustion with ultra low emissions for ships)

Project ID: 506676
Funded under: FP6-SUSTDEV


This is the final report of the 'High Efficiency Engine R&D on Combustion with Ultra Low Emissions for Ships' (HERCULES I.P.) project, which developed new technologies to drastically reduce gaseous and particulate emissions from marine engines and concurrently increase engine efficiency and reliability, hence reduce specific fuel consumption, CO2 emissions and engine lifecycle costs. The focus of the HERCULES I.P. was on the development of future generation of optimally efficient, clean and reliable marine powerplants.

The report contains an executive summary on the project's objectives and main achievements and then provides more insight into the project's structure and the work performed. There is a detailed presentation for each work package and finally information on externalisation and dissemination activities and conclusions on the project's findings.
