MOL to experiment out gas injection on slow speed of diesel engines

2012 03 09

JAPAN's Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL) has announced that it will work together with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding to conduct a demonstration run of an electrically-controlled slow speed diesel engine modified to include a gas injection system.

The engine will be designed, manufactured and delivered to a shipyard for one of the shipping group's newbuildings, which is being built with oil injection specifications. During manufacturing it will be temporarily modified to an electrically-controlled gas injection, dual fuel, slow speed diesel engine. It will be run with vaporised LNG at MES Tamano Works in the first half of 2013.

LNG has recently been highlighted as one of the potential propulsion fuels for future ship design, a company statement said.

It plans to start investigating the adoption of gas injection technology for future vessels, along with its Sempaku ISHIN project, one of the environmental strategies in its mid-term management plan "Gear up! MOL".
