In recent news, Japan-headquartered Kawasaki Heavy Industries (KHI) announced that it has obtained DNV approval for its L30KG gas engine, stating that it has become the first Japanese-designed gas engine to obtain type approval from DNV.

The L30KG is intended as a main propulsion engine for ships fuelled solely by gas and has been adapted to allow for numerous marine applications, addressing needs such as load fluctuation and can support a directly-coupled mechanical drive or a gas-electric propulsion system.

KHI is in the process of obtaining type approval for the associated control system. The engine is based on a Kawasaki gas engine developed for the distributed power generation market, which the company says boasts a highest-ever electrical efficiency of 49.0% and NOx emissions below 200 ppm(at 0% O2).

The gas engine is said to be able to reduce emissions to far below Tier III levels with no need for SCR or other NOx-reduction technology. Additionally it offers significant reductions in CO2 and SOx emissions compared to diesel engines. Read the full article.
