MAN to build LPG-engine together with HHI

MAN to build LPG-engine together with HHI

06-02-2018 10:00:00

MAN Diesel & Turbo has signed a letter of intent with Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI) to build an engine, driven by liquid petroleum gas (LPG). This fuel has a great potential because it does not contain sulphur, thus complying with the upcoming rules and restrictions for sulphur emissions.

"In the past, we have experienced a lot of interest in the market of using LPG as fuel on LPG tankers, but other shipping segments have also begun to show interest in this option, which denotes a general and growing trend," says Bjarne Foldager, Vice President of MAN Diesel & Turbo.

MAN Diesel & Turbo expects the new ME-LPIG dual-fuel engine to become "highly competitive" on price in comparison to other duel-fuel engines.

"LPG has a great potential, as it does not contain sulphur, is easy to grasp and easy to fill up. Because of this it is on its way to becoming a more attractive alternative to other low sulphur fuel types, "said a message about the new ME-LPIG engines.

Hyundai Heavy Industries machine division will build the new engines, once they are fully developed.
