Osaka-based Engine technology and manufacturing firm Yanmar on Thursday (16 September) said it has received an order of dual fuel 6EY22ALDF engines which will be used to power generators on board a LNG-fuelled large coal carrier to be operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd.
The coal carrier will be built by Namura Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.
Emission regulations in the marine sector are becoming ever more stringent, with LNG vessels being adopted globally as a means of reducing environmental impact, it states.
As this trend has progressed in recent years, dual fuel engines have attracted ever more attention. The ability to run on both diesel and environmentally friendly LNG allows them to satisfy International Maritime Organization (IMO) Tier 3 regulations whilst also reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
