DBR is a full-service provider of reliable power solutions with a rich history dating back to 1965. Their core expertise lies in delivering Onshore and Offshore gensets, with a strong focus on outstanding service and sustainability.
In collaboration with DBR, we’ve pioneered the development of the first dual fuel hydrogen gensets for marine applications.
This groundbreaking achievement combines DBR’s track record of reliable energy solutions for marine and offshore applications with CMB.TECH’s specialisation in designing and building large marine and industrial applications that run on hydrogen or green ammonia.
Damen Shipyards, a global supplier of marine applications, has ordered the first three hydrogen gensets that will be operated on Windcat’s CSOVs.
The cooperation between CMB.TECH and DBR will continue to develop and expand. The possibilities are considerable and, given the significant CO₂ reduction and ease of use, these dual fuel gensets will soon find their way to other ships and applications in the maritime industry.
Dual fuel hydrogen genset
The core of the dual fuel hydrogen genset is formed by the proven MAN V12-24l engine, which has been successfully used in previous collaborations between CMB.TECH and MAN Engines. The genset has a maximum output of 940kVA / 752 kWe at 60 Hz (1800 rpm) and can operate on diesel or in dual fuel mode where emission savings of up to 83% can be achieved. In a typical D2 duty cycle, 53% of diesel consumption and 12% of AdBlue consumption is saved, resulting in a significant reduction in CO₂ emissions. The genset is also available in 50Hz (1500rpm) which can deliver 822kVA of power.
