WinGD reports strong first quarter 2019
A newbuild order spree of LNG carriers affirms the market leading position of WinGD’s XDF engines. WinGD is reporting a very solid order intake for the first quarter of 2020 for their low-pressure, dual-fuel two-stroke engines, the company said in its release.
The maritime industry’s response to the call for tighter environmental regulations combined with the 2020 sulphur cap is steadily driving the industry towards dual fuel solutions.
A few recent high profile orders confirm that confidence in LNG as a marine fuel is growing to include a broader range of vessel types beyond LNGC to include Chemical & Crude Oil Tankers, Asphalt Carriers and Container Feeders. Now totalling over 200 X-DF engines on order and/or deliverd, the low-pressure technology has proven to be the right choice for moving ahead with a more sustainable propulsion solution.
The combination of strong running experience results and the growing infrastructure to support LNG as fuel has positioned WinGD’s X-DF engines to dominate the market for dual-fuel orders.
