The International Maritime Organization (IMO) calls upon the marine industry to innovate and embrace new technologies in order to achieve its goal of phasing out carbon emissions. Research and development into low- and zero-carbon marine fuels is already having a meaningful impact, and industry leaders like South Korean Hyundai Heavy Industries – Engine and Machinery Division (HHI-EMD) are driving the change.
HHI-EMD is one of the world’s largest marine engine manufacturers and is currently developing a new line of dual-fuel engines. These engines run on both liquid and alternative eco-friendly fuels such as liquefied natural gas (LNG).
“We’re seeing significant interest in alternative dual-fuel energy,” said An Kwang-hean, president and COO of the Engine and Machinery Division. “Using dual-fuel engines can reduce carbon dioxide, sulphur oxide and nitrogen oxide emissions noticeably compared to using diesel. As requirements for industrial decarbonization increase, dual-fuel engines are expected to make a significant contribution to the sustainable shipbuilding industry.”
The company remains committed to strengthening its position as an engine manufacturer specialized in eco-friendly business and has undergone a digital transformation to support its engine development.
In particular, HHI-EMD wanted to improve engineering collaboration with its licensees and centralize data management. It found the answer in the 3DEXPERIENCE platform, which today serves as the foundation for all its engine product development.
