Dual-Fuel Engines

Dual-Fuel Engines
DE20DF / DE28DF / DE35DF


Further reducing the environmental impact of our engines we introduce our DF engine lineup: dual-fuel engines that switch seamlessly between gas and liquid fuel and, unlike a conventional diesel engine, can cut NOx by up to 80% during gas mode operation. This series brings together tried and tested technologies from our accredited diesel and gas lines into one economic solution.

  1. Complies with IMO NOx Tier3 exhaust emission regulations (in gas mode)
  2. Low-fuel consumption realized with lean combustion technology and optimum valve timing (VVT technology)
  3. Improved redundancies with the independent pilot fuel injection system, and peace of mind thanks to the Independent Safety System (ISS) fail-safe control
  4. Four-stage loading possible in gas mode (load response improvement)
    *In the case of using DE28DF
  5. Supports various fuels (Oil:HFO/MDO/MGO, Gas:LNG)




Safety Features of the Engine's Gas Piping Area

  • Double-walled gas piping system
  • Ventilation function of first wall piping lines, and installed gas leak detection
  • Instantaneous switching to diesel mode in the event of gas slip (failure of gas supply system), with injection of inert gas into the gas fuel pipe
