“We are proud to announce the approval of our methanol-ready notation by DNV,” said Jon Erik Røv, Managing Director of Bergen Engines. “This achievement highlights our dedication to providing sustainable solutions to address the evolving needs of our customers and the environment. With methanol, we can offer a cleaner alternative to ship owners that aligns with our mission to drive positive change in the industry.”

Methanol offers many advantages for Bergen medium-speed engines, the company stated, with its efficient combustion properties reducing emissions and contributing to enhanced engine performance.

In addition to methanol, Bergen Engines said research is underway for other alternative fuels. Building upon its success in hydrogen blending, the company said it aims to develop a 100% hydrogen-fueled engine by the end of this year. Simultaneously, research continues to assess the feasibility of utilizing ammonia as a primary fuel source, in an effort to further expand the company’s green solutions portfolio for land and marine-based applications.
