Using diesel engines of proven reliability as a basis, Niigata Power Systems has continuously developed gas engines to meet contemporary market needs. The most recent development is a spark-ignition, lean-burn engine running on 100 % fuel gas and a dual-fuel engine capable of running on both fuel oil and fuel gas. As well as land-based and marine power generation, the engine has also been developed for propeller curve applications in tugs.

Notes

Thanks

The dual-fuel marine propulsion engine 6L28AHX-DF from NPS uses technology from the research development as a supported project of “Research project of CO2 reduction from marine vessels” by the Japanese Ministry of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism, as a supported project by Nippon Kaiji Kyokai (Class NK), and as a joint research with Japan Ship Technology Research Association, and with the financial support of the NIPPON Foundation. Niigata expresses sincere appreciation to these associations and foundation.
