WINGD AND HHI-EMD UNITE FOR SUSTAINABLE DUAL-FUEL TWO-STROKE TECHNOLOGY

WINGD AND HHI-EMD UNITE FOR SUSTAINABLE DUAL-FUEL TWO-STROKE TECHNOLOGY

Wednesday, November 3, 2021 

Marine engine designer and power system integrator WinGD and engine builder Hyundai Heavy Industries’ Engine Machinery Division (HHI-EMD) are to strengthen their collaboration by partnering to develop environmentally sustainable two-stroke engine technology.

Under a joint development agreement, the two companies will together develop engine solutions that further reduce greenhouse gas emissions from methane while improving both the engine’s efficiency and footprint for reduced costs.

WinGD VP R&D, Dominik Schneiter said: “This development reinforces our long-standing relationship with HHI-EMD and illustrates the expertise and commitment both companies share to help customers build and operate the most efficient and environmentally sustainable vessels.”

HHI-EMD President and COO Kwang-hean An added: “HHI-EMD has a commitment to an environmental, social, and governance focused strategy. Through these collaborations, our customers can be confident that we are providing the technology solutions they need for the future.” 

The cooperation will aim to further enhance WinGD’s dual-fuel, low-pressure X-DF engines.  Key goals are to further reduce GHG emissions and toxic air pollutants such as NOx, cut fuel consumption and minimise the engine footprint through an integrated design optimised for both newbuilds and retrofits. As a first step, HHI-EMD and WinGD will perform prototype testing of a compact, on-engine energy saving and emission reduction technology in 2022.
