Earlier this year, MAN Diesel & Turbo announced its plans for a program of ME-GI testing during 2011 at the company’s Diesel Research Centre in Copenhagen Denmark. The 4T50ME-X R&D research engine has been rebuilt as a 4T50ME-GI specification engine, to carry out ME-GI dual fuel testing on LPG (Liquid Petroleum Gas) and HDO.fuels. Operation on dual fuel requires the injection of both pilot fuel and gas fuel into the combustion chamber. Comparison of emission levels shows that there are benefits in the full range when using LPG as fuel: a 17 per cent reduction in CO2, 12 per cent reduction in NOx,, a 92 per cent reduction in SOx and a 37 per cent reduction in particulates.
