The Hyundai HiMSEN engines are economical and environmentally friendly, employing a high fuel injection pressure and an optimized supercharging utilizing the Miller Cycle timing principle, in order to ensure low fuel consumption and reduce emissions. The HiMSEN engines are in compliance with Tier II of IMO’s NOx Regulations.

Maintenance is made easy, by the engine having a modularized design with a minimum number of different components.
