Hyundai Heavy Industries-Engine & Equipment Division (HHI-EMD) reported it has examined a LNG-hydrogen mixed-fuel operation in a four-stroke HiMSEN engine – a primary in South Korea’s shipbuilding business
The South Korean enginebuilder mentioned it examined a 1.5-MW LNG Hydrogen HiMSEN engine that was developed with its personal inhouse know-how, with its efficiency and stability confirmed at HHI-EMD’s R&D centre.
The blending ratio of hydrogen was 25%, which might cut back CO2 emissions by 30% in contrast with a diesel engine, based on the corporate.
HHI-EMD mentioned this LNG-Hydrogen HiMSEN engine can be utilized as a stationary engine at an influence plant, marine genset engine or ship’s propulsion engine. The engine may also use hydrogen boil-off fuel for gas.
HHI-EMD has been creating the eco-friendly engines that use LNG, methanol and ammonia for gas, with plan to launch a pure hydrogen combustion engine by 2025.
HHI-EMD just lately opened a brand new manufacturing facility to supply dual-fuel engines in anticipation of elevated demand.
