Interesting, we could not run in parallel with the aux engines. We synchronised the shat generator with the aux generator and the shaft generator would take the full load from the aux engines. RPM of the main engine was fixed as we had CPP.

Nice to hear about these developments!

Things have changed a lot in the industry and now we are looking at engines running purely on gas in future, MEGI series from MAN B&W. Even conventional ships will be running on gas, which means we are looking at a change in how we take bunkers, from coal in ship's bunkers in olden times to oil at present and natural gas in future.

It'll probably be a special sort of filthy, thick, unrefined gas!
