bioMSAR™ was successfully tested on a Wärtsilä type-32, 1.64MW medium speed 4-stroke engine by VTT Technical Research Centre of Finland Ltd, and the fuel’s performance was compared to marine diesel as a reference fuel.
5 tons of bioMSAR™ was manufactured at QRF, using the same formulation used for the Aquafuel tests (i.e. 40% glycerine, 50% heavy oil residue, 10% water).
Highlights from the VTT Wärtsilä 4-stroke bioMSAR™ test are:
- Engine efficiency was higher (up to 7%) than with marine diesel, and is dependent upon load.
