CSSC marks construction of world’s first CMD-WinGD 9X92DF duel fuel main engine model

11 Aug 2021

The China State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC) on Tuesday (10 August) marked the construction of the CMD-WinGD 9X92DF dual-fuel main engine that will be installed on a 14,000 TEU container ship that is able to use liquefied natural gas (LNG) as a bunker fuel.

The power unit is developed by Winterthur Engine Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of China Shipbuilding Power Group, and manufactured by Shanghai CSSC Mitsui Shipbuilding Diesel Engine Co., Ltd.

“This model has made considerable progress in terms of economy, with unit fuel consumption reduced by 0.7% in fuel mode and 2.4% in gas mode,” stated CSSC.

According to CSSC, the development indicates that China Shipbuilding Power Group is becoming more mature in the production and manufacturing of super-large WinGD X series dual-fuel main engines.

It further lays a solid foundation for subsequent mass production of super-large WinGD X series dual-fuel main engines.

As of July 2021, a total of 28 global orders for the X92DF series main engine have been placed in effect with all of them undertaken by the CSSC Power Group.

“With the increasingly stringent requirements of the International Maritime Organization on ship emissions and the further expansion of the dual-fuel main engine market, China Shipbuilding Power Group will continue to expand the dual-fuel main engine model spectrum to further enhance the competitiveness of the company,” it concludes.
