ME-LGI engine concept demonstrated

Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding (MES), the MAN Diesel & Turbo licensee, recently demonstrated the liquid-gas-injection concept in Japan. 

The demonstration took place on 17 June using the very first ME-LGI engine to ever be commercially produced, according to a statement by MAN Diesel.

The engine, with the type designation 7S50ME-B9.3-LGI, is bound for a vessel currently under construction by Minaminippon Shipbuilding for Mitsui O.S.K. Lines.

“The immediate market acceptance of our ME-GI (Gas Injection) engine confirmed the growing demand for low-sulphur, non-HFO options in the face of increasingly stricter sulphur limits in fuel. In turn, extending our dual-fuel engine programme with an ME-LGI unit that can run on liquid fuels was therefore a natural step,” Ole Grøne, Senior VP, Low Speed Promotion & Sales at MAN Diesel & Turbo said.

The interest in our ME-LGI engine confirms this dual-fuel, low-speed trend and will offer even more alternatives to HFO, which – apart from methanol – will include LPG, dimethyl ether (DME), and (bio-) ethanol, as well as several other, low-sulphur, low-flashpoint fuels,” he added.
