First ME-GA engine with individual cylinder control option completes gas trials
The first low-pressure ME-GA engine to be equipped with a new engine control feature, ‘ME-GA-opti’, has successfully completed LNG gas trials in South Korea, MAN ES has announced.
The vessel’s engine-control system is the first to be equipped with a new control feature called ‘ME-GA opti’, which MAN ES states will allow optimal engine operation through individual cylinder control.
The MAN B&W ME-GA engine has been installed on an LNG carrier under construction by Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) for an unspecified shipowner. The dual-fuel vessel, which was ordered in Q2 2021 and is scheduled for delivery in July 2023, is equipped with Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) for emission reduction.
