WinGD has released a time-lapse video of the build of a dual-fuel 12X92DF engine, built by CSSC-MES Diesel Co., Ltd. (CMD) in Lingang, Shanghai.
This 12-cylinder version of the 92 cm bore X-DF dual fuel engine from WinGD, is set to be the largest and most powerful Otto cycle gas and dual-fuel engine ever built and will bring a new level of environmental sustainability to the containership segment.
The engine build has taken approximately 3125 person days, which totals to 25 000 man hours. The engine weighs over 2100 t and has received parts from more than 15 countries.
About the 12X92DF
Rated 63 840 kW at 80 rpm, the 12X92DF engine is one of the largest and most powerful gas and dual-fuel engines ever built. WinGD’s low-pressure dual-fuel technology enables stable combustion, high fuel efficiency and low noxious and greenhouse gas emissions typical of lean burn gas combustion.
X-DF engines comply with IMO Tier III limits on NOx in gas mode and IMO Tier II in liquid fuel mode, both without EGR or SCR. With WinGD’s X-DF engines and LNG as fuel, compliance is guaranteed with the upcoming emissions regulations due to the low NOx and SOx emissions from burning LNG in the X-DF engine.
