WinGD collaborates with KSS Line for NH3-fuelled gas carriers
WinGD has signed a memorandum of understanding with Korea-based gas and petrochemicals transportation specialist KSS Line to explore the use of X-DF-A engines for future newbuild projects. The companies will focus on 52cm- and 62cm-bore versions of the dual-fuel ammonia engines, suitable for midsize and very large gas carriers (VLGC).
The agreement is the latest of several collaborations under which WinGD is working with experts from across key shipbuilding locations and vessel segments to develop its ammonia capabilities. The scope of the cooperation will extend beyond engine technology, also focusing on the performance and maintenance solutions necessary for using alternative fuel.
