WinGD is pleased to have been appointed as a member of the LNG Marine Fuel Institute. As leaders in the design and development of the two-stroke X-DF LNG engines, WinGD is highly invested in the advancement of the shipping industry through LNG as fuel. More than 150 engines of the new WinGD X-DF type are ordered, under construction or in operations, the company said in a press release.
WinGD’s engine design history dates back to the late 1800s when they were founded as the Sulzer Diesel Engine business. Their recent success in the LNG market is evidence of their commitment to looking ahead to the future. As early promotors of LNG as fuel for the two-stroke market, WinGD has been a strong advocate for moving shipping towards a more sustainable future.
