ABS Awards AIP to Kawasaki Heavy for LPG as Fuel System Design

ABS Awards AIP to Kawasaki Heavy for LPG as Fuel System Design
Classification society ABS has granted approval in principle (AIP) to Japanese shipbuilder Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) for the company’s LPG as fuel system design.

 A dual-fuel engine capable of using both marine diesel oil and LPG as fuel, KHI claims the system simultaneously reduces fuel consumption and enables the engine to meet NOx Tier 3 regulations.

“Using LPG as a fuel can lower emissions to air compared to conventional fuels, both in terms of greenhouse gas emissions and other pollutants. We are proud to work with … KHI, supporting the delivery of the next generation of cleaner vessels,” Patrick Ryan, ABS Senior Vice President, Global Engineering and Technology, commented.

KHI’s design is for an electronically controlled LPG injection marine diesel engine (ME-LGIP), the first order placed for an engine of this type in Japan.

“LNG as fuel is attracting widespread attention as an environmentally friendly option, but LPG as fuel has advantages over LNG, including potentially reduced initial investment and simpler handling onboard,” Hideaki Naoi, General Manager at KHI, said.

“As a result, we believe LPG as fuel will prove increasingly attractive to the market in the future,” he concluded.
