NAPA analysis shows EEXI would lead to a 6.6 per cent emissions cut

NAPA has shared the preliminary results of its new research that explores the potential effect of The Energy Efficiency Index for Existing Ships (EEXI) on the transportation capacity, total emissions and carbon intensity of the global bulker fleet. Adopted by MARPOL in June 2021, EEXI measures and restricts CO2 emissions per transport work, purely considering...

J-ENG demonstrates MGO mono-fuel engine

Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) has demonstrated the first marine gas oil (MGO) and marine diesel oil (MDO) mono-fuel engine. The UEC50LSJ-EGR engine complies fully with nitrogen oxides (NOx), sulphur oxides (SOx), and the Energy Efficiency Design Index (EEDI) requirements, under the concept of JUMP (J-ENG, Unique Marine Power). The engine, which is subsidised by The...
