MAGS – Recovering Energy from Cruise Ship Waste
It is not surprising that cruise ships generate large amounts of solid waste, resulting in progressive demands from ship owners for solutions to repurpose and utilize waste to generate energy onboard. Terragon’s MAGS is a novel energy appliance fueled by waste, providing cruise ships with exceptionally clean operation, improved safety, energy efficiency and recovery and reduced savings. Implemented on two luxury cruise ships traveling to environmentally sensitive areas, MAGS is influencing changes in maritime regulations, through IMO, that will eventually phase out polluting incinerators.
