The LNG market is developing rapidly, and the demand for LNG carriers and LNG fueled ships is increasing because LNG is a very attractive solution from an emission and economic point of view. The high efficiency of dual fuel engines has made the engine market the preferred prime mover choice for new projects. HHI-EMD has rich experience in manufacturing both the ME-GI engine and the 4-stroke dual fuel engine HiMSEN.
The HiMSEN GenSet can use both diesel and LNG on LNG carriers and conventional LNG fueled ships. One of the key components for LNG fueled ships is the LNG fuel gas supply system for both dual fuel engine types.
Hi-GAS is a remarkable design of the LNG fuel gas supply system for dual fuel engines based on high and low pressure supply. This means that Hi-GAS can effectively supply high pressure CNG to the ME-GI engine while also supplying low pressure CNG to the 4-stroke DF GenSet, essentially doing the work of two fuel supply systems.
