The shipping industry and the IMO (International Maritime Organization) have set demanding goals for reducing climate emissions by 2050. Goals that today we do not know how to solve and with what technology. This has resulted in a number of different technological tracks for finding purification solutions and alternative fuels. For industry, and especially the part that operates between different continents, this places special demands on an overall development of infrastructure, production and technical change on the ships. Those who follow the industry closely can not come up with another recommendation a choice of propulsion machinery adapted for multifuel.

The LRT engine architecture is well adapted to these needs through its ability to optimize the engine’s compression ratio in relation to the fuel available in the various ports. This is a unique feature compared to today’s engine technology where one is locked into one or two types. One of the challenges with dual fuel machines is fuel efficiency. The engine compression ratio must be optimized against one of the fuel types, which results in a loss of efficiency on fuel type 2. By using the LRT architecture, all fuel types can be run with optimal efficiency in all conditions.
