Gas-Diesel engines


Gas-diesel engines utilise the diesel combustion process in all operational modes. In gas mode, the gas is injected at high pressure after the pilot fuel and is ignited by the subsequent flame. The gas-diesel engine can be switched instantly from gas to liquid fuel mode operation. The liquid fuel can be light fuel oil, heavy fuel oil or crude oil. In fuel sharing mode, the ratio between liquid and gas fuel can be controlled and varied during operation.
