MHI-MME retrofits 80 LNGCs to run on 2020-compliant fuel

22 Feb 2017 08:48 GMT

Japanese firm says its technology for main boilers can also be used with ULSFO.



Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Engine Co., Ltd. (MHI-MME) claims it has retrofitted 80 LNG carriers to run on low-sulphur marine fuel.

The Japanese firm says its burner and control system technology for main boilers, which was developed for use with low-sulphur marine gas oil (LSMGO), can be used with a wide range of fuel viscosities, including ultra-low-sulphur fuel oil (ULSFO).

MHI-MME points out that the decision by the International Maritime Organization (IMO) to implement a 0.5 percent global cap on the sulphur content of marine fuel in 2020 has led to suppliers developing their own brands of ULSFO containing sulphur levels of 0.5 percent or below.

"The oil property [of ULSFO] is very variable depending on its brand or supplier with no international standard, and that will cause unstable combustion of the burner," MHI-MME said.

"MHI-MME has already applied such technologies to auxiliary boilers for all new building vessels. MHI-MME will continually develop new technologies and system to meet its customers' requirements as well as severe regulations for environmental control," MHI-MME added.
