ARTEMIS Dual-Fuel System for Marine Propulsion Engines

For marine applications, focus is shifting to dual-fuel technology, aiming for a significant reduction in fuel costs as well as compliance with stricter emission standards. The ARTEMIS Dual-Fuel System offers a complete, tailor-made dual-fuel solution based on proven and certified components. For large low and medium-speed engines with an output power range between 1000 kW and 10 MW, the multi-point gas admission based ARTEMIS version is best suited to avoid fuel losses. It incorporates a dual-fuel ECU, multiple gas admission valves and an EFI controller as main components. The single port gas injection concept assures best load response, a low risk of backfiring and optimal conditions regarding fuel consumption and emissions.

MEGASOL 200 II Gas Admission Valve for AFR control of marine propulsion engines

electrically actuated gas admission valve, characterised by
  • excellent load response due to gas injection close to the inlet valves
  • precise dosage and inidividual adjustment of gas quantity for each cylinder
  • minimized risk of backfire or gas loss by valve overlapping

The test bench runs have been successfully completed for the first dual-fuel conversion on a marine propulsion engine in the world, a project carried out by shipping line Fred. Olsen SA and HEINZMANN: By the start of 2018, the ferry Bencomo Express running between Tenerife and La Gomera, will be converted to LNG with its four main drives. >> project details
