Factory acceptance test of MAN B&W LNG dual-fuel engine completed

08 May 2017 06:47 GMT

Test carried out at STX Heavy Industries' factory in Changwon, South Korea.



The factory acceptance test (FAT) of the world's first MAN B&W 5G45ME-C9.5-GI LNG dual-fuel main engine was carried out at MAN B&W licensee STX Heavy Industries' (STX) factory in Changwon, South Korea in April.

The test was performed in a cooperation between engine manufacturer, shipyard, shipowner and classification society, Finland's ESL Shipping reports.

"All tests were carried out both in gas and fuel oil mode. The engine performed extremely well during change-overs between fuel oil- and gas modes. Big changes in engine load did not present any challenge for the engine while operating in gas mode. This is important especially for operation in heavy ice conditions. Recorded energy efficiency of the engine full filled design criteria and our high expectations," ESL Shipping said.

Based in Helsinki, Finland, ESL Shipping is a carrier of dry bulk cargoes in the Baltic Sea region. The company's main clients are in the steel, power generation and chemical industries.

Last year, Bunker Index reported that ESL Shipping's two large LNG-fuelled bulk carriers are being built at Sinotrans & CSC Shipbuilding's yard in Nanjing, China. Due for delivery in early 2018, the two 25,600-deadweight-tonne (dwt) ships have type C LNG tanks with a capacity of approximately 400 cubic metres.
