MAN Energy Solutions has launched the development of a new low-pressure gas engine as a supplement to its existing high-pressure dual-fuel ME-GI engine.

The company cited market demand as the rationale behind the move.

“With this announcement, we expect to cater for the segment in the market that prioritises low-pressure dual-fuel, and this will complement our comprehensive portfolio of solutions,” Bjarne Foldager, senior vice president, head of Two-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions, said.

The company aims to complete the development of the new engine during the first half of 2022.

MAN Energy Solutions sees the introduction of the low-pressure engine in terms of filling a gap within its portfolio, much akin to how its ME-LGIP engine, which was introduced in 2018, added LPG to its roster, further broadening the list of liquid fuels its ME-LGI (-liquid gas injection) engine can exploit.

“Our mature two-stroke, dual-fuel technology has become the de-facto industry standard and accumulated over 280 confirmed sales along with 500,000 operational hours. Going forward, we want to further expand our reach within the general market for gas engines,” Foldager added.
