Vessel Types

WinGD's low-speed engines are helping to set new market standards. With built-in flexibility in engine specifications, shipyards and ship owners are able to adapt engine performance to specifically meet the intended operational requirements.

The changing supply and demand situation, varying fuel prices, alternative fuel choices, and new emission regulations give an advantage to flexible vessel and propulsion designs able to be reconfigured for optimum performance according to any and all conditions.

Tankers currently represent 27% of the world’s merchant fleet larger than 2000 GT.

They carry a variety of liquid cargoes in bulk, such as crude oil, products and chemicals.

Tankers can range in size of capacity from several hundred tons, which includes vessels for servicing small harbours and coastal settlements, to several hundred thousand tons, for long-range haulage. Besides ocean- or seagoing tankers there are also specialized inland-waterway tankers which operate on rivers and canals with an average cargo capacity up to some thousand tons.

In most of cases, the voyages are long, fuel consumption is usually the main focus of the solution that WinGD can propose.The standard machinery solution is reliable, simple, safe and economical, with a 2-stroke engine connected to a single shaft line. The common-rail system has built-in redundancy. This eliminates unexpected engine stops and introduces the highest level of flexibility for engine tuning. The benefits of machinery reliability can also be enhanced through the Condition-Based Maintenance (CBM) service. This aims to provide extended intervals between overhauls and improved operating profits. For increased machinery efficiency, waste heat recovery (WHR) can be selected.


Container vessels form 19% of the world’s merchant fleet and are a vital element within the transportation infrastructure.

They support the global economy. Machinery reliability is, therefore, essential.

WinGD serves its container vessel customers with integrated solutions that offer significant cost savings. High energy efficiency has the greatest impact on operating costs and is delivered by solutions from WinGD which combine an engine with low fuel consumption and high-efficiency waste heat recovery (WHR) system.

Different ship concepts show how container vessels can be designed to take advantage of the new Panama Canal dimensions. The fuel efficiency gain is driving the WinGD proposal to the customers for example through Delta Tuning,  Low-Load Tuning and WHR.


Today, bulk carriers make up 39% of the world’s merchant fleet.

WinGD has a range of low-speed engines that successfully power all types and sizes of bulk carriers. At the top of the range is the high power WinGD X82-B engine, while the new small-bore low-speed engines, the WinGD X35-B and WinGD X40-B, are for lower engine power.

Ship owners, operators and yards are able to benefit from low running costs, reliability and easy installation provided by WinGD engines, and from the support provided throughout the entire life cycle of the equipment. With ease of operation, the WinGD engines require minimal operator training, a factor that is particularly helpful when changing crews.


General cargo vessels represent 10% of the world’s merchant fleet.

The latest general cargo vessels tend to be for specialised applications and multipurpose carriers (MPP).

Whatever the vessel’s operating profile, WinGD offers customized solutions that meet the specific needs of ship owners and operators. The innovative approach and broad product portfolio enable fit-for-purpose cargo vessels to have the flexibility needed to achieve clear environmental and economic benefits.



Dual-fuel engine technology and electric propulsion systems have produced a significantly beneficial LNG carrier machinery solution.

The environmental aspects of dual-fuel engine technology are extremely beneficial. The solution is very clean and reliable with a high efficiency. There are no visible smoke emissions and no sludge deposits. The low-pressure gas system is safe and simple to operate.

The use of heavy fuel oil for the DF engines in‘diesel mode’ further enhances their fuel flexibility, and provides ship operators with the highest degree of control over operating costs when gas and liquid fuel prices fluctuate.

WinGD's dual-fuel technology means that engines do not need to be stopped and do not lose power or speed when changing fuel type. Our merchant team is available to advise on the most suitable solution for specific applications.
