Methanol Engine

These series of methanol engines are designed for high performance and versatility, with power ranges from 200 to 600kW. Available in V6, V8, and V12 models, these engines boast a low methanol consumption rate of ≤410 g/kWh and an impressive thermal efficiency of 41%. Using M100 methanol as fuel, they offer a cost-effective and eco-friendly solution.

These engines are notable for their compact size, lightweight construction, and strong power output. They operate quietly, consume less methanol, and are highly reliable and easy to maintain. As a cleaner alternative to diesel engines, they are suitable for a wide range of applications.

These engines are highly adaptable and can power a variety of machinery and vehicles. They are ideal for non-road construction machinery, providing the strength and efficiency needed for heavy-duty tasks while minimizing environmental impact. In generator sets, these engines deliver consistent and reliable power, making them perfect for both primary and backup power sources. For green ships, they offer a sustainable propulsion option, reducing emissions and contributing to cleaner maritime operations. Additionally, as the main power source for range extenders in hybrid systems, these engines enhance fuel efficiency and reduce overall emissions, making them an excellent choice for modern, eco-conscious energy solutions.

  • These engines feature a V-type, four-stroke design with intake manifold injection, turbocharging, intercooling, electronic ignition, and water cooling, ensuring efficient and powerful performance
  • The single-cylinder head structure simplifies maintenance, making disassembly and reassembly quick and easy
  • The engine's design has been optimized through advanced manufacturing techniques, resulting in fewer parts and a more compact, durable structure
  • Despite their small size, these engines provide high power, reliable operation, and low noise levels
  • Fuel efficiency is optimized with air-fuel ratio closed-loop control and lean-burn technology, delivering excellent economic performance
  • The engines include non-stop fuel changeover technology, ensuring reliable starts even in cold conditions
  • Durability is enhanced with specialized methanol engine oil and additives, protecting metal and rubber components from corrosion and swelling
