WinGD ammonia engine secures industry-first AiP from Lloyd’s Register

Swiss-headquartered engine manufacturer WinGD has been awarded the first ever approval in principle (AiP) for a two-stroke engine fuelled by ammonia by classification society Lloyd’s Register (LR).  The AiP is for WinGD’s X-DF-A dual-fuel range, with the first engine in the series, the 52-bore X52DF-A, due for delivery in the final quarter of 2024. Under […]

Glosten hybrid tug is familiar but different

Glosten hybrid tug is familiar but different

A methanol-hybrid tugboat developed by Glosten and ABB should enable operators to switch to greener operations without any jarring overhauls to procedures, writes Stevie Knight While tugboats’ average hours of operation are low compared to other vessel types – often just 2,000-3,000 hours annually – they still contribute significantly to overall port emissions. With stakeholders […]

Enhanced engine diagnostics tool from WinGD

Enhanced engine diagnostics tool from WinGD

Swiss marine power company WinGD has launched a pilot project for a new engine diagnostics solution that is claimed to greatly simplify engine maintenance for crew and fleet managers. The enhancement to WinGD’s engine monitoring and remote support platform, WinGD integrated Digital Expert (WiDE) is being trialed on a vessel managed by Bernhard Schulte Shipmanagement […]

Car carriers stir methanol engine demand

Car carriers stir methanol engine demand

MAN Energy Solutions (MAN ES) has been awarded an order to supply the first S60 dual-fuel engines capable of operating on methanol. The MAN B&W 7S60ME-LGIM dual-fuel engines have been ordered in connection with the construction of 2 × 9,300CEU pure car and truck carrier (PCTC) vessels for Chinese integrated-logistics company China Merchants Energy Shipping […]

NYK’s LNG-hybrid PCTCs are 40% more energy efficient

NYK’s LNG-hybrid PCTCs are 40% more energy efficient

The Japanese company’s fleet renewal strategy is targeting net-zero emissions by 2050, writes Tom Barlow-Brown. Japanese shipowner NYK Line is increasingly adopting a carbon neutral stance, transitioning its fuel choices to LNG and ordering newbuilds that utilise new environmentally conscious technology. WinGD is the latest to have been picked to provide dual-fuel option for NYK. […]

CROSS-INDUSTRY TEAM TACKLES METHANE SLIP Methane is a potent greenhouse gas, estimated to have a global warming potential (GWP) of 27-30 over 100 years, while CO2 has a GWP of 1 regardless of the time period used. The low-pressure, dual-fuel concept has proved to be the most popular LNG engine technology, but it is also […]

Emissions-free port stays

Emissions-free port stays

As gateways to global trade, ports are critical economic and commercial hubs. However, they are also a major source of air pollution. While vessels are berthed in port and running their diesel-fuelled auxiliary engines to power the auxiliary equipment and accommodation load, they emit a harmful combination of pollutants including carbon dioxide, nitrogen oxides, sulphur […]

MAN sets a new benchmark in dual-fuel efficiency

MAN sets a new benchmark in dual-fuel efficiency

Raising its game in the wide-bore, medium-speed engine stakes, MAN Energy Solutions has introduced its most powerful dual-fuel, four-stroke engine to date. Spanning the 7,800-18,200kW maximum output range, the 49/60DF design exceeds the larger 51/60DF in potency, while consuming less fuel, such that it is claimed to achieve a class-leading standard of efficiency in both […]

The design challenge of ammonia-fuelled engines

The design challenge of ammonia-fuelled engines

Developing safe, reliable and efficient ammonia-fuelled engines demands new research capabilities, writes Dr. Andreas Schmid, General Manager Technology Development, WinGD. With ammonia emerging as one of the leading clean fuel candidates for decarbonising the shipping industry, WinGD and other engine designers face an important challenge: to design an engine concept that can be applied to […]
