China-based maritime technology firm Headway Technology Group (Qingdao) Co., Ltd. on Thursday (20 April) said it recently secured an order to supply methanol fuel supply system for the Methanol Duel-Fuel Low-Speed Marine Engine testing platform built by Dalian Marine Diesel Co., Ltd. (DMD). 

The order includes a customised fuel supply solution that covers major methanol-powered engines including MAN 9G95ME-LGIM, 7G80ME-LGIM, 7S60ME-LGIM, and 6G50ME-LGIM. 

The collaboration with DMD represents a major milestone for Headway, demonstrating the company has won approval from major alternative fuel-powered engine manufacturers and making them the first Chinese solution provider to receive orders for methanol fuel supply system.

Headway Technology Group will supply to DMD a comprehensive ‘One-Stop Solution’, that comprises Methanol Fuel Supply Skid, Auxiliary Heat Exchange System, Nitrogen Generation System, and Control & Safety System. 

The entire system is set to be delivered by late 2023. Independently developed by Headway Technology Group, OceanGuard® Methanol Fuel Supply System is adaptable to both ocean-going and inland waterway vessels. The system has completed the initial prototype tests in the laboratory and is currently in the joint-test verification on an independent test platform. 

DMD is a marine engine manufacturer in China, known for manufacturing the complete range of MAN and WinGD Low-Speed marine engines. 

Headway said the collaboration between them and DMD represents a significant step forward in the pursuit of maritime decarbonisation and underscores the companies’ commitment to providing reliable and sustainable solutions on alternative marine fuels for global customers.
