March 7, 2012 - PRLog -- Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd. (MOL; President: Koichi Muto) today announced it has been decided that Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (MES; President: Yasuhiko Kato) and MOL conduct a gas injection demonstration run utilizing a temporarily modified electrically-controlled type slow speed diesel engine. The engine is designed, manufactured and delivered to a shipyard with oil injection specifications for one of the MOL newbuilding vessels, however during manufacturing, it will be temporarily modified to an electrically-controlled gas injection duel fuel slow speed diesel engine. The engine will be run with vaporized LNG at MES Tamano Works in the first half of 2013.

LNG has recently been highlighted as one of the potential propulsion fuels for future ship design. MOL will start to investigate adoption of the demonstration-oriented gas injection technology to future vessels, along with its Sempaku ISHIN project, one of the environmental strategies in the midterm management plan “GEAR UP! MOL”.
 
< Electrically-Controlled Gas Injection Slow Speed Diesel Engine (MEGI)>
Gas burning technology has been developed and accumulated in MES through electric power generating operation of slow speed Gas Injection Diesel Engine (GIDE) at its Chiba Works. GIDE technology is combined with latest and proven electrically-controlled type slow speed diesel engine.
