Gas Valve Train

Project: Research


It is the vision of the project to development a new robust gas valve train for two-stroke dual fuel ship engines. The gas valve train system has to be designed for a pressure of 600 bar and temperatures down to -90° - 60° C. This will enable the use of alternative gasses and result in higher engine efficiency, when LNG is consumed. The components of the new gas valve train will be jointly developed by a Danish consortium that, after the end of the project, will have a strong basis for export to engine manufacturers in Asia.
