Hyundai Heavy Industries Develops High Output Eco-Friendly Gas Engine
Hyundai Heavy Industries has completed the test run of the newly developed high output eco-friendly HiMSEN Gas Engine H35G for the first time in Korea on May 27.
The new gas engine can be used for ship propulsion and power plants. The engine features ‘Lean Burn' technology and is regarded as eco-friendly and highly efficient by reducing parts to make the engine lighter thus saving fuel.
The new engine emits 20% less CO2 than diesel engines, reduces NOx emissions by 97% to reach world's lowest level of 50ppm, and improves engine performance 47%.
After the final durability test, Hyundai Heavy plans to start full-scale production of the new engines from early next year.
Upon the completion of the newly developed gas engine, Hyundai Heavy will have full production capacity of 780bhp to 13,600bhp diesel and gas engines.
Mr. Yoo Seung-nam, senior executive vice president of Hyundai Heavy Industries said, "The successful development of this high output gas engine will give Hyundai Heavy a technological competitive edge to further expand in the world engine market."
With 35% of global engine market share, Hyundai Heavy reached an aggregate production of 20 million brake horse power in 4-stroke engines in the shortest time in the world, and expects to produce an aggregate 100 million brake horse power in 2-stroke engine for the first time in the world by September this year.
