Yanmar dual-fuel engines for shipboard generators

By Jack Burke16 September 2021

Engines can run on LNG or diesel

Yanmar has received an order for dual-fuel 6EY22ALDF engines which will be used to power generators on board a liquefied natural gas (LNG)-fueled large coal carrier.

The company said emission regulations in the marine sector are becoming ever more stringent, with LNG vessels being adopted globally as a means of reducing environmental impact. As this trend has progressed in recent years, dual-fuel engines have attracted ever more attention. Their ability to run on both diesel and environmentally friendly LNG allows them to satisfy International Maritime Organization (IMO) Tier 3 regulations whilst also reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions, Yanmar said.

Yanmar has received an order for dual fuel 6EY22ALDF engines which will be used to power generators on board a LNG-fueled large coal carrier to be operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd.

The coal carrier will be operated by Mitsui O.S.K. Lines and be built by Namura Shipbuilding Co.

The 73 L 6EY22ALDF engine is rated 800 kW and has a bore and stroke of 220 X 320 mm.
