Seven class societies certify HiMSEN four-stroke engine

Seven class societies have certified HD HHI-EMD’s four-stroke, methanol dual-fuel HiMSEN H22CDF-LM engine, following its completion of type-approval tests (TAT) in South Korea.

HD HHI-EMD reported class societies Korean Register, ABS, Bureau Veritas, DNV, ClassNK, Lloyd’s Register and RINA witnessed the results of the TAT of the four-stroke engine methanol dual-fuel HiMSEN engine H22CDF-LM during 19-22 March.

Capable of using both diesel and methanol, the dual-fuel engine can produce 1,440-2,160-kW output, and greatly improves the effectiveness of installation, management and engine efficiency compared with the South Korean engine manufacturer’s existing engine with an electro-hydraulic boosting unit (e-HBU) — an independently developed methanol boosting unit.

The certification of H22CDF-LM follows HD-HHI-EMD’s first four-stroke methanol dual-fuel engine H32DF-LM to be approved by class.
