Korea Promotes Hydrogen Co-Firing Engine
South Korea’s first home-grown, mixed-fuel LNG/hydrogen engine has been demonstrated for the first time to potential buyers. The versatile four-stroke design has been jointly developed by HD Hyundai Heavy Industries Engine & Machinery Division (HHI-EMD) and HD KSOE in keeping with decarbonisation goals, and will augment the group’s HiMSEN portfolio.
Based on HiMSEN LNG dual-fuel engine technology, the new model will provide users with the option to selectively use and switch between diesel oil, LNG and an LNG/hydrogen mixture. Operating in the latter mode will realise reductions in greenhouse gas emissions such as CO2 and unburnt methane.
