China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) on Tuesday (26 May) launched the world ’s largest marine dual-fuel low-speed engine (WinGD X92DF) guaranteed by CSSC Marine Power Technology Service Co.
The engine that is able to consume gas as a bunker fuel was developed by CSSC’s subsidiary Winterthur Engine Co., Ltd. (WinGD) and built by Shanghai CSSC Mitsui Shipbuilding Diesel Engine Co.
The launch was held via video conference with participants from Beijing, Shanghai, China, Paris, Marseille, and Winterthur, Switzerland.
CSSC Chairman Lei Fanpei announced the engine has been approved by French classification society BV during the ceremony.
“The release of the WinGD X92DF is in line with the global trend towards energy conservation and low carbon emissions in the marine industry,” said Lei.
“The low-speed dual-fuel engine marks a new step for China’s marine fuel research and development, manufacturing and service capabilities, and empowers the development of the global ship industry to promote sustainability.”
The WinGD X92DF was designed to integrate ultra-high power, intelligent controls, and environmental protection.
Tests show that it outperforms other engines of the same class in terms of performance and emission indicators, adds CSSC.
The company concludes that the development of this engine is a significant milestone as it indicates that China’s maritime technology is maturing and can research, develop and manufacture high-end marine equipment.
