Periodic Report - HERCULES-B (Higher-efficiency engine with ultra-low emissions for ships)

Project ID: 217878
Funded under: FP7-TRANSPORT


The principal aim of the HERCULES-B project, which received funding under the European Commission's Seventh Framework Programme (FP7), is to contribute to the drastic reduction of carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions from maritime transport, considering the existing and foreseen composition of the world fleet and fuel infrastructure. Specifically, it aims to reduce fuel consumption of marine diesel engines by 10 %, improve efficiency of marine diesel propulsion systems to a level of more than 60 %, thus reducing CO2 emissions substantially.

The report includes two diagrams, as well as a table with the project vision and a table with the potential exploitation items.
