Japan Engine Corporation (J-Eng), the joint venture company between Mitsubishi and Kobe Diesel, says it has delivered many UEC50LSH-Eco-C2 engines since the first began service in 2015, and has now completed the official shop trial and overhaul inspection for the first 6UEC50LSH-Eco-C3-EGR version, which features full electronic control of fuel injection and exhaust valve operation.

The engine will be installed on a chemical tanker built by Shin Kurushima Dockyard and owned by Iino Kaiun Kaisha Ltd. The UEC50LSH-Eco-C3 engine is optimised by fully-electronically control system for exhaust valve drive as well as fuel injection, and realises lower fuel consumption compared to the UEC50LSH-Eco-C2, contributing to achieving an EEDI phase 3 index of CO2 emissions.

The UEC50LSH-Eco-C2 engines have been building up good service results and the new UEC50LSH-Eco-C3 model will be expected to follow the current model's reliability and secure future orders. Its power range is the same as UEC50LSH-Eco-C2 and can be optimised for various types of vessels, including chip carriers, Supramax bulk carriers, Handysize bulk carriers, MR tankers and feeder container vessels as well as chemical tankers.

The 6UEC50LSH-Eco-C3 engine is equipped with a low-pressure EGR system to comply with NOx Tier Ⅲ regulations. The low-pressure EGR system has been applied to UEC50LSH-Eco-C2 and UEC60LSE-Eco-A2 engines, with stable service results.

J-Eng, as a global/integrated licensor covering development, design, production, sales and after-sales service, will take forward its activities providing environmental-friendliness and fuel economy.
