Dual-Fuel Engines For Bunker Tanker
By Jack Burke28 September 2018
Yanmar has obtained an order for two dual-fuel 6EY26DF engines as the main propulsion for a bunker tanker being built by Keppel Offshore & Marine Singapore’s wholly-owned subsidiary Keppel Singmarine.
The engines, as well as its liquefied natural gas (LNG) fuel supply system, will be delivered for installation in January 2019.
Sinanju Tanker Holdings will own and operate this vessel in a partnership agreement with Mitsui & Co., Ltd. (Asia Pacific). When the vessel is delivered in December 2019, it will be Singapore’s first dual-fuel powered bunker tanker running on LNG and marine gas oil.
The 6EY26DF engine offers 1200 kW at 750 rpm and has a bore and stroke of 260 X 385 mm.
To help the shipping industry achieve a reduction in greenhouse gas emissions, Yanmar said it will continue to develop ship engines with environmental sustainability in mind and providing optimal solutions to meet the needs of our customers.
