The developments from the X-DF1.0 to X-DF2.0 involved inclusion of the iCER EGR technology without changing brake mean effective pressure (BMEP), but now WinGD is looking to further increase efficiency and reduce emissions, this time with changes to BMEP.

Increasing BMEP enables several new measures to be implemented that will reduce wall heat loss while providing efficiency improvements. Prior to this, the advantage of keeping BMEP and engine speed unchanged was to guarantee X-DF2.0 engine applicability to current ship designs without necessitating changes.
