MHI has built a name for itself with its MET Turbochargers

The MET turbocharger has been selected as the first turbocharger for dual-fuel X-DF engines produced by Winterthur Gas & Diesel Ltd (WinGD).

It is the first time a MET turbocharger has been selected for use in combination with X-DF series engines.

The MET66MB will be mounted on two W5X72DF engines manufactured by Hyundai Heavy Industries Co Ltd (HHI) and will be delivered to Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co Ltd (DSME) for installation in an 180k cbm LNG Carrier (Hull 2462) commissioned by a shipping company capitalised by Itochu Corporation and Mitsui OSK. Lines Ltd.

Verification tests were carried out using an X72DF test engine at Diesel United Ltd. The W6X72DF engine was provided with two sets of MET66MB turbochargers and was was successfully tested in both diesel and gas mode in the presence of WinGD's engineers.

The MET Turbocharger boasts the world's largest market share, at around 40% of the two-stroke marine engine market. While, Win-GD’s X-DF engines represent the next generation of dual-fuel marine engines and are capable of operating using diesel fuel and low-pressure gas fuel. The engine conforms to the new IMO Tier III regulations, and has reduced NOx and SOx emissions in gas mode.

Against a backdrop of increased demand for eco-friendly solutions and a predicted increase in demand for dual-fuel engines, MHI-MME said it will continue to contribute to the preservation of our environment by providing a variety of ecofriendly products, including MET turbochargers for dual fuel engines.
