Hyundai Heavy Industries has recently completed the test run of the newly developed high output eco-friendly HiMSEN gas engine H35G in Korea.

The engine can be used for ship propulsion and power plants and features ‘lean burn’ technology and is regarded as eco-friendly and highly efficient by reducing parts to make the engine lighter, thus saving fuel. The new engine emits 20% less CO2 than diesel engines, reduces NOx emissions by 97% to reach a claimed lowest level of 50ppm, and improves engine performance by 47%.

After the final endurance test, HHI plans to start full-scale production of the new engines from early in 2011, which will give the company full production capacity of 780 bhp to 13,600 bhp diesel and gas engines.

Yoo Seung-nam, senior executive vice president of Hyundai Heavy Industries said, “The successful development of this high output gas engine will give Hyundai Heavy a technological competitive edge to further expand in the world engine market.”

With 35% of global engine market share, Hyundai Heavy has reached an aggregate production of 20 million bhp in four-stroke engines and expects to produce an aggregate 100 million bhp in two-stroke engines by September 2010.
