Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) has been awarded the orders for UE engines to power two next-generation coal carriers, owned by Mitsui OSK Lines (MOL), and built at Oshima Shipbuilding.

J-Eng says its 6UEC60LSE-Eco-A2 design has been adopted for a variety of vessels such as Coal Carriers, PCTCs and Panamax Bulk Carriers, due to its low fuel oil consumption, high reliability and service activity. The latest order will include the Low Pressure EGR System (LP-EGR), J-Eng’s original development for IMO Tier III compliance. The LP-EGR is said to significantly reduce NOx emissions without penalising fuel oil consumption. LP-EGR employs a simple exhaust gas recirculation system, taking and treating low pressure and low temperature exhaust gas from the turbocharger outlet, which is said to contribute to improve maintainability and reduced operation cost.

J-Eng, which claims to be the only global independent licensor of marine diesel engines with a thorough business structure involving development, design, manufacturing, marketing and after-sales service, says it will aggressively move forward to innovate and provide its Eco- Friendly Engine to customers requiring low fuel consumption and energy saving.
