The low-pressure MAN B&W ME-GA engine delivers best-in-class CAPEX for LNG carriers

The low-pressure MAN B&W ME-GA two-stroke dual-fuel LNG engine delivers a low CAPEX solution that is the perfect choice for certain vessel types and applications, such as LNG carriers which are able to use "boil-off" gas as a source of fuel, or smaller ships where low capital outlay is a priority. 

Based on the well-proven MAN B&W dual-fuel design with minimal installation requirements, the MAN B&W ME-GA uses an efficient ignition concept and a unique gas admission system that delivers safe and reliable operation at the lowest possible cost.  

The engine benefits from a proven and cost efficient Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) design for significantly lower NOx, CO2 and GHG emissions. 

 

Best-in-class CAPEX

In addition to the advantages of using "boil-off" gas from LNG carriers, the MAN B&W ME-GA is exceptionally cost-efficient in other ways, for example with minimal installation and operational costs, simple supply and purging concepts and low maintenance costs of the fuel-gas supply system, which in combination with the cost effective and proven EGR design, put the ME-GA engine in a very strong position compared to other two-stroke low-pressure LNG engines.

Well-known engine room design accommodates simple installation, and the distinctive features from the well known ME-GI platform enables you to take advantage of crews existing ME-GI know how
