WinGD‘s big bore engines bring reliability to the container vessel market

WinGD’s series of 920mm bore size X92 engines are powering some of the largest vessels in the world, in both the dual fuel Otto-cycle and traditional Diesel-cycle platforms providing the efficiency and emissions performance ship-owners need to deliver their cargo safely and on time. 

With a growing fleet of nearly 200 vessels ordered, the 70 engines already in operation have accumulated close to 1 million running hours. Most recently it is the X92-B, the newest addition to the portfolio, that has dominated the container vessel order intake because it provides the best propulsion efficiency for modern large and ultra large container vessels due to optimal cylinder power, shaft speed and stroke to bore ratio. 

Both X92-B and X92DF engines feature WinGD’s WiCE advanced control system and WiDE intelligent engine data analysis and remote support, key components in optimizing overall efficiency. WiDE is a comprehensive digital solution providing ship owners and operators full awareness of the operating condition of their vessels and enables WinGD experts to stay on top of any fluctuations of performance to ensure uninterrupted and optimal performance.  

To date WinGD’s complete X92 engine portfolio continues to deliver on the promise of reliability, energy efficiency and low emission profile while an investment in this technology today offers the future fuel flexibility needed to be confident in the longevity of the vessel.  

WinGD is in close contact with all vessel owners and has been able to confirm that the current situation with the CMA CGM OSIRIS is not related to the main engine. WinGD remains on hand to support its customer with all engine related inquiries and is committed to the safe and reliable operations of their engines.
