An ammonia engine in the making
Maritime players Win GD and Hyundai Heavy Industries are developing an ammonia two-stroke engine, together, which can be an important step in shipping’s progress towards decarbonisation.
The two parties aim to deliver a first engine by 2025, in line with Win GD’s previously announced timeframe for bringing ammonia engines to market. The project will explore ammonia concepts for both diesel-fuelled Win GD X-type engines and dual-fuel LNG X-DF engines. (sh)
