Engineers from the Japanese company Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding created the world’s first diesel engine driven ethane! Two stroke ME-GIE will put in motion a tanker with a capacity of 36 thousand. m3 transporting ethane. LNG carrier will charge both the fuel! Another two units already ordered shipowners from Germany and Norway. Constructing ME-GIE can revolutionize maritime transport, because ethane is much cheaper than other previously used fuel, with its combustion emits 20% less CO2 and many times less sulfur than the burning of heavy fuels.
