Yanmar receives dual fuel engine order from Mitsui O.S.K. Lines

Published by
LNG Industry,


Yanmar has received an order from Mitsui O.S.K. Lines, Ltd (MOL) for its dual fuel 8EY26LDF engines.

The engines will be used to power generators on board Japan’s first two LNG ferries (provisionally named Sunflower Kurenai and Sunflower Murasaki). The ferries are to be built at Mitsubishi Shipbuilding Co., Ltd.’s Shimonoseki Shipyard.

Ferry Sunflower (a group company of MOL) will charter the ferries after delivery and launch them on its Osaka-Beppu route from the end of 2022 through 1H23, as replacements for vessels currently in service.

As emission regulations in the marine sector become ever more stringent year on year, LNG vessels are being adopted globally as a means of reducing environmental impact. As this trend has grown in recent years, dual fuel engines have attracted ever more attention. Their ability to run on both readily available diesel as well as environmentally friendly LNG allows them to satisfy International Maritime Organization (IMO) Tier 3 regulations, whilst also reducing greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions.
