Hyundai Heavy Produces World's First Engine Meeting New IMO

March 4, 2010 - Hyundai Heavy finished the trial run for the marine engine which reduces NOx emissions by 15% and delivered it to Yangfan Shipyard, China.

IMO tightened the regulations for NOx emissions of marine engines from 17g per 1kWh to 14.4g in October, 2008.

Under the new regulations, ships built from January 1, 2011 must be installed with marine engines that comply with the new emissions targets.

Hyundai Heavy started to produce the environmentally friendly marine engine in 2008 and has since developed turbochargers, fuel valves, air coolers and refined the engine design to meet the new regulations.

Shipowners' demand for environmentally friendly products is increasing as awareness of the impact on the environment increases. Producing the first environmentally friendly engines meeting new IMO standards gives us a distinct advantage in this growing market," said Mr. Kim Eung-sung, senior vice president of Engine & Machinery Division.

Hyundai Heavy is a global leader in developing environmentally friendly solutions, having already introduced a ballast water treatment system and building Korea's first LNG carrier with Dual-Fuel Diesel-Electric (DFDE) propulsion and a hybrid patrol vessel.

Hyundai Heavy as the world's largest engine producer takes 35% of global marine engine market. It had produced 94 million bhp in 2-stroke engine and 20 million bhp in 4-stroke engines by the end of 2009.

Meanwhile, the 16,680 bhp marine engine delivered to Yangfan Shipyard will be installed in a 92,000dwt bulk carrier.
