MET turbocharger to be used in X-DF engine for first time

06 Jan 2017 11:48 GMT

Turbocharger selected for dual-fuel engine produced by Winterthur Gas & Diesel.



Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Engine Co., Ltd. (MHI-MME), has confirmed that its MET turbocharger has been selected to be used in dual-fuel X-DF engines produced by Winterthur Gas & Diesel Ltd. (WinGD).

The MET turbocharger was recently approved by WinGD for mounting on X-DF series engines; it is the first time a MET turbocharger has been selected for use in combination with these engines.

The MET66MB is to be mounted on two W5X72DF engines manufactured by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) and will be delivered to Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd (DSME) for installation in an 180,000-cubic-metre LNG carrier commissioned by a shipping company capitalized by Itochu Corporation and Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd.

Verification tests were carried out using an X72DF test engine at Diesel United Ltd. The W6X72DF engine was provided with two sets of MET66MB turbochargers, and is said to have been successfully tested in both diesel and gas mode in the presence of WinGD's engineers.

According to MHI-MME, the MET Turbocharger has a 40 percent share of the world's two-stroke marine engine market.

WinGD's X-DF engines are capable of operating using diesel fuel and low-pressure gas fuel. The engine conforms to the new IMO Tier III regulations and offers reduced NOx and SOx emissions in gas mode.
