Crowley First to Order Mitsui’s ME-GI Engines

Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.  has received the first order for electronically controlled gas injection diesel engine (ME-GI) from Crowley Maritime Corporation.

 

MAN B&W 8S70ME-C8.2-GI will be installed on 2 x 2,400 TEU + 400 vehicles ConRo ships to be built by VT Halter Marine Inc.

ME-GI is a diesel cycle dual fuel engine based on the principle of 2 stroke low speed diesel engine, and it can use both heavy oil and natural gas as fuel depending on relative price and availability, as well as environmental considerations.

Natural gas option can contribute to significant reduction not only in CO2 emissions, SOx, PM emissions and NOx, but also in fuel cost by shale gas development, therefore it can be an alternative fuel selection for shipowners.
