The prospect of gas engines being used to fulfil IMO Tier III in Emissions Control Areas puts both spark-ignited and pilot ignition gas engines under the spotlight. With their clean burning, no sulphur fuels, there is no doubt that they can fulfil most emissions targets. But what about reliability, longevity, power density, load acceptance, maintenance and safety in the traditionally cautious marine industry? Giving a comprehensive snapshot of the state-of-the-art, leading gas engine expert Günther Herdin addresses these and other reservations.
