The Japanese company improved existing technology to develop a combustion engine that efficiently burns high-pressure gas through direct injection.
In addition to reducing CO2 emissions, it also slashes sulphur oxide emissions to effectively zero.
The engine will be marketed to customers after emissions levels and fuel economy are tested through a trial run that starts in late 2013 at Mitsubishi Heavy's Kobe shipyard.
The engine will be used for liquefied-natural-gas carriers, large tankers and containerships.
