by swisschambei in Business

Swiss based marine engine technology developer WinGD continues to invest in its R&D testing infrastructure with the opening of a new collaborative Global Test Centre in Shanghai, China. The new test centre which opened on the 16 December, is a collaboration with CSPI (China Shipbuilding Power Engineering Institute Co., Ltd.) for the advancement of a decarbonized future through sustainable fuel and combustion research and innovation. The role of R&D has come into sharp focus as part of the strategy to help ships reach the IMO’s 2050 target. The success of the industry reaching these targets relies on a focus well beyond alternate fuels. This new Global Test Centre will encompass research and innovation around future fuel propulsion solutions, holistic energy management systems, and power generation based on new energy converters. For the development of new technologies and products, the Global Test Centre comprises of two 2-stroke test engines and several test rigs for the validation of sub-systems such as fuel injection, pumps or gas admission valves. With future demands in mind, testing will focus on new fuels including methanol and ammonia, and on the further development of WinGD’s low pressure dual-fuel technology. The test centre will also be equipped with an electrical grid representing modern vessels, including a DC grid laboratory and dynamometers instead of water brakes, a perfectly suited infrastructure to test and demonstrate hybrid propulsion systems in the future.
