MAN D&T, HHI to build dual-fuel engine test facility in Ulsan

MAN Diesel & Turbo in collaboration with Hyundai Heavy Industries said it will build a new test-engine facility in Ulsan, South Korea. 

The new venture with HHI-EMD, the engine and machinery division of Hyundai Heavy Industries, aims to expand MAN Diesel & Turbo’s R&D test capacity, in the process strengthening its development of dual-fuel gas engines.

The test and gas facility will be located in Ulsan, Korea at HHI-EMD’s works and is scheduled to begin operation in early 2019.

It will be the first test engine with online remote control, MAN Diesel .& Turbo said.

In this respect, the test engine will also be connected to MAN Diesel & Turbo’s research and control center in Copenhagen, enabling the company’s research engineers to closely follow and enhance the testing of future engine technologies.

MAN D&T also said the new test engine set-up will also feature its own ME-GI pump vaporizer unit (ME-GI PVU), a high-pressure LNG supply unit that makes FGSS installations significantly more compact.

The ME-GI PVU is designed to pressurize and vaporize the LNG fuel to the exact pressure and temperature required by ME-GI engines. Gas pressure is controlled via control of hydraulic oil flow to the pump, ensuring a very quick and precise control of the LNG supply to the engine. Separate control of each pump head provides full redundancy.

The ME-GI PVU was recently launched by MAN PrimeServ, Copenhagen and is available in five different sizes covering MAN Diesel and Turbo’s two-stroke ME-GI engine programme.
