WINGD ad­vances mar­itime sec­tor with new tech­nol­ogy

The Gulf Today - Business - - UAE -

DUBAI: Win­terthur Gas & Diesel (WINGD), a Chi­nese-owned and Switzer­land-based en­gine man­u­fac­turer suc­cess­fully emerges as leader in the Mena re­gion with their fo­cus on smart ship­ping and in­no­va­tive ser­vices.

In its pur­suit to de­vel­op­ing sus­tain­able tech­nol­ogy for track­ing fu­ture emis­sion reg­u­la­tions for en­vi­ron­men­tal up­keep, WINGD con­tin­ues to re­in­force the im­por­tance of LNG as a fuel for the fu­ture In ad­di­tion to pro­vid­ing ef­fi­cient ser­vices while re­duc­ing costs and im­prov­ing per­for­mance.

The com­pany is not new in the DIESEL EN­GINE In­dus­try, As RELECTED by its 125 year his­tory. Af­ter its in­cep­tion as Sulzer Cor­po­ra­tion in 1893, the com­pany merged into Wärt­silä Cor­po­ra­tion in 1997, be­fore even­tu­ally merg­ing with China State Ship­build­ing Cor­po­ra­tion (CSSC) and be­ing re­branded to WINGD in 2015.

Adop­tion of low-pres­sure gas tech­nol­ogy by the ma­rine in­dus­try has en­abled WINDG to carve a niche for them­selves, es­tab­lish­ing them­selves as the lead­ing de­vel­op­ers of low-pres­sure dual-fuel tech­nol­ogy for low-speed gas and diesel en­gines for ma­rine propul­sion.

Eng. Ibrahim Be­hairy, Manag­ing Direc­tor at WINGD Mena, com­mented, “Our pas­sion for sus­tain­abil­ity and in­no­va­tion fu­els our quest for suc­cess in the re­gion. Be­ing in the en­gine de­sign busi­ness for over a cen­tury, at WINGD our tech­nol­ogy con­tin­ues to evolve as we pur­sue greener fuel choices, Im­proved ef­fi­cien­cies and re­duced op­er­at­ing costs.”

“Keep­ing track of fu­ture emis­sions reg­u­la­tions in the re­gion, it is im­per­a­tive that al­ter­nate fuel re­sources be found and uti­lized. In or­der to keep rel­e­vant and vi­tal, most of our R&D ef­forts are FO­CUSED on in­d­ing CLI­MATE Friendly so­lu­tions, while cater­ing to ship de­signs and op­er­a­tor re­quire­ments,” Be­hairy added.

Re­in­forc­ing a fu­ture of smart ship­ping. In keep­ing with ev­er­chang­ing emis­sion leg­is­la­tions, WINGD prac­tices low-pres­sure gas ad­mis­sions, man­u­fac­tur­ing rev­o­lu­tion­ary low-pres­sure, du­al­fuel X-DF en­gines, Gen­er­a­tion X EN­GINES, AND RT-LEX DIESEL EN­GINES, which have caused a break­through in the ma­rine mar­ket.
