The UEC-LSH Series is an engine that uses conventional fuels or compliant fuel oils, has complied with the environmental regulations for SOx and NOx, and has achieved further reduction in fuel consumption compared to the conventional models.
The first UEC50LSH engine was completed in March 2015. Having been received favorably, the number of orders has been steadily increasing. Additionally, we have completed the first UEC42LSH in March 2021 and the latest model, UEC33LSH, being on the market in March 2022.
The first UEC42LSH-Eco-D3 has been completed in March 2021.
The UEC42LSH-Eco-D3, currently under development, is the successor to the UEC45LSE, which has a high number of delivery record. The UEC42LSH is characterized by an ultra-low fuel consumption achieving further fuel economy of UE engine’s specialty, together with the optimized output range for handy-size bulk carriers and small chemical carriers built by domestic and international shipyards.
