This technical paper deals with a general introduction of the fuel injection system on the Mitsui-MAN B&W engine. There are two different fuel injection systems, one is driven by a mechanical camshaft used in conventional MC/MC-C engines, and the other is the electrically controlled hydraulic system as used by ME/ME-C engines.
Due to strict requirements with regards emissions, as well as for the safety of the ship, the electrically controlled hydraulic fuel injection system will become more and more popular in the future of marine two-stroke engines.
We consider this fuel injection system to optimize the NOx emission, and also the emission of other greenhouse gases. It must be a key technical factor of engine development in the future.
