WinGD wins marine propulsion Emissions Reduction Award
WinGD took home the Marine Propulsion Emissions Reduction Award last week, in Amsterdam, during the Sulphur Cap 2020 Conference. The Emissions Reduction Award is awarded for an innovation that can “demonstrate actual or potential reductions in emissions as a result of its implementation.”
WinGD’s X-DF technology is designed to reduce emissions far below the IMO Tier III limits, utilising their signature high efficiency, reliable, low-pressure gas admission system.
In November 2017, CMA CGM announced it would outfit its new mega vessels with WinGD 12X92DF engines, rated 63,840 kW at 80 rpm, making them the most powerful gas and dual-fuel engines ever built. X-DF engines are the only marine low-speed engines able to operate with low-pressure natural gas, which complies with IMO Tier III NOX limits, without requiring after treatment systems or complex engine technologies.
