Video: World’s first conversion of container ship to dual-fuel


The video depicts a project involving the retrofitting of the 1,036-TEU feeder container ship’s MAN 8L48/60B main engine to a multi-fuel, four-stroke MAN 51/60DF unit that enables dual-fuel operation, the first conversion of its type.

As informed, the dual-fuel conversion has enabled the ‘Wes Amelie’ to significantly reduce its SOx emissions by 99%, NOx by approximately 90%, and CO2 by up to 20%. The vessel now meets both the Tier II and Tier III emission requirements set by IMO.

As the ‘Wes Amelie’ operates in the Nordic and Baltic Seas, both within Emission Control Areas, it needed to meet the highest environmental standards and strictest limits for emissions.

The LNG conversion was completed in late September.
