Delivery of MET Turbochargers for the Main Engines (WinGD X-DF2.0iCER) of LNG-Fueled Car Carriers
MHI-MME will be delivering MET71MB Turbochargers for the main engines of four NYK Line LNG-fueled pure car and truck carriers (PCTC) being constructed by China Merchants Jinling Shipyard (Nanjing ) Co. Ltd.
The newbuild LNG-fueled PCTCs will be powered by the Winterthur Gas & Diesel (WinGD) 7X62DF2.1 low-pressure dual fuel engines built by CSSC-MES Diesel & Co., Ltd. (CMD), which is the first engine in the world to which X-DF2.0 technology with iCER (Intelligent Control by Exhaust Recycling) will be applied.
We developed a turbocharger for iCER that can deal with the liquid droplets and fuel residue that may come in from the intake side. The turbocharger is scheduled for delivery to CMD sequentially from December 2021. Going forward, we will contribute to the construction of vessels with a small environmental footprint through the provision of turbochargers that can respond to fuel conversion and meet advances in engine technology.
