COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry Technology (Weihai) inked an order agreement for methanol fuel supply system for four 16,000 TEU container ships with COSCO SHIPPING Heavy Industry (Yangzhou).

Ιt is the first large project of methanol fuel supply for both the main and auxiliary engines of ships in China, according to a COSCO statement.

In particular, the methanol fuel supply system, also called "Marine Shield" (Haidun), adopts dual-core redundancy + PID closed-loop control to maintain the stability and reliability of the equipment.
