TECH-INNOVATION POWERED

TECH-INNOVATION POWERED BY VDMA - MARINE EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS MAN ENERGY SOLUTIONS Record-breaking engine for Maersk new buildings with methanol propulsion MAN B&W 8G95ME-LGIM Hyundai’s Ship-Building Division, HHI- SBD, has ordered 8 × MAN B&W 8G95ME-LGIM (-Liquid Gas Injection Methanol) engines in connection with the building of 8 × 16,000 TEU container ships for the shipping company A.P. Møller – Maersk. Hyundai Engine & Machinery Division, HHI-EMD, will build the engines. The order contains an option for a further four engines with the first of the confirmed vessels due to enter service in Q1, 2024. »This is a massive milestone as these engines will be the largest methanolburning engines ever constructed. They will be based on their well-proven 50-bore counterpart, which has already been in our engine portfolio for some time gathering more than 100,000 running hours on methanol alone. The 95-bore’s development is another example of our commitment towards decarbon- isation and providing solutions demanded by the market«, said Bjarne Foldager, Senior Vice President and Head of Two-Stroke Business, MAN Energy Solutions. © MAN Energy Solutions The company states that the new engines will be capable of burning bio-methanol as well as e-methanol. The new order closely follows that from July 2021 when MAN Energy Solutions won the order to supply the world’s first, low-speed, dual-fuel engine to run on methanol within the container segment – a MAN B&W 6G50ME-LGIM type built by HHI-EMD – to a 2,100 TEU vessel also ordered at Hyundai Mipo Dockyard by A.P. Møller – Maersk. »As a fuel, methanol is quickly becoming an option within the large containervessel segment where – up until now – conventional fuel and LNG have long reigned. We expect that this significant order will spur further market interest in methanol as a fuel, also within other ship segments such as bulkers«, said Thomas S.

TECH-INNOVATION POWERED BY VDMA - MARINE EQUIPMENT AND SYSTEMS ROLLS-ROYCE Sustainable propulsion solutions for yachts © Rolls-Royce Körting ejectors for the shipbuilding industry The Bilgin yacht »Tatiana« was one of the first yachts with IMO III compliant mtu engines Rolls-Royce is launching a range of sustainable mtu propulsion solutions for yachts. The first large yachts are already running with mtu systems based on the mtu Series 4000, which are certified for IMO III emissions regulations. Brand new on the market from April 2022 will be mtu Series 2000 propulsion systems with exhaust gas aftertreatment for production yachts. A new generation of mtu Series 16V2000M97L engines will be available with an integrated exhaust after treatment system from April 2022. This will enable production yachts to sail in particularly protected areas, for example in ECA zones such as the North American coast, the Caribbean and the North and Baltic Seas. The systems with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) units »significantly reduce particulate and nitrogen oxide emissions«, the company says. The IMO III propulsion system will be delivered for the first time this autumn and tested in a production yacht from the beginning of 2022. Further engine variants of the mtu Series 2000 will gradually become available for IMO III operation. Furthermore, Rolls-Royce will initially offer hybrid solutions for production yachts with mtu Series 2000 engines and variable electric power, which will cover a power range of approximately 1,000 to 1,939 kilowatts per power train. In addition to the engines, the system also includes electric motors, gearboxes, batteries, control and monitoring systems and other electronic components. Rolls- Royce‘s concept for an mtu series hybrid system comprises a modular building kit with standardized components and concepts for different vessel types and sizes. For yachts, a hybrid system brings high performance and significant gains in terms of comfort – with quiet, lowvibration and low-emission cruising. In purely electric operation, neither sulphur nor nitrogen oxide or particles are emitted. The yacht engines of the mtu 2000 and 4000 Series will be approved for sustainable EN 15940 fuels such as e-diesel and second-generation biofuels from 2023, enabling climate-neutral cruising. HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil), for example, is a biofuel that can be produced from waste in a CO 2 -neutral way, with low emissions and clean and efficient combustion. Rolls-Royce Power Systems engineers are working on other new technologies such as fuel cell systems and methanol engines. At its Yacht Competence Centre in La Spezia, the company offers shipyards technical support in the development and integration of new propulsion systems. »There will be different propulsion concepts in the future, depending on the specific needs of yacht owners, shipyards and infrastructure,« explained Nicola Camuffo, who heads the Yacht Competence Centre of Rolls- Royce’s Power Systems business unit in La Spezia, Italy. trouble-free operation for life!
