WinGD COMMITS TO DECARBONISATION

WinGD COMMITS TO DECARBONISATION

Friday, October 29, 2021 

WinGD says that the company has joined other industry leaders in the 'Getting to Zero' Call to Action, being committed to a low-carbon future through sustainable energy ecosystems utilising advanced technology in emissions reduction, fuel efficiency, digitalisation, service and support.

By 2030, WinGD expects multi-fuel engines capable of running on sustainable and renewable fuels to represent over 50% of its order intake. Beyond alternate fuels, WinGD’s digital and hybrid solutions will contribute to the further reduction of energy consumption onboard. WinGD is committed to providing both methanol- and ammonia-capable engine technology ready from 2025 onward to offer a portfolio of solutions to achieve 2050 targets.  

WinGD believes its commitment to reducing the environmental impact of shipping is active and proven, following the introduction in 2020 of its iCER technology for the low-pressure X-DF engines. This technology currently allows GHG emissions reductions of up to 50% when using LNG.

In November 2018, Terntank’s Tern Sea tanker, powered by WinGD X-DF engines, bunkered with LNG and liquefied biogas (LBG) as drop-in fuel to further reduce GHG emissions. In November 2020, the CMA CGM Jacques Saadé, the largest containership powered by LNG, performed the first bunkering of gas containing 13% of biomethane to further reduce GHG emissions. 

Bio-LNG and synthetic methane are considered viable fuels to contribute to the decarbonisation of the shipping industry. These fuels can currently be used on existing WinGD X-DF engines.
