As the world focuses on flexible and sustainable energy solutions, it is our hope that Bergen Engines can be a catalyst for change. We conduct innovative studies on low-carbon future fuel options and explore new applications to meet the demands of tomorrow. Explore our ongoing research with Hydrogen, Methanol and Ammonia below.


Future fuel options are important for the green transition because of their potential to address the challenges associated with traditional fossil fuels and contribute to a more sustainable and environmentally-friendly energy landscape. This is why Bergen Engines is working to ensure our technology performs with the same reliable efficiency, no matter the fuel source chosen by our customers.

Our customers are making long-term investments when planning their next project, yet uncertainties loom regarding future fuel availability, costs, and regulatory landscapes, including potential CO2 taxes. That’s why Bergen Engines’ modular design prioritizes fuel flexibility, enabling customers to navigate these uncertainties with confidence. This flexibility ensures reliability and top efficiency ratings for our engines, regardless of the fuel type they choose to operate with today, providing peace of mind and longevity to their investments.


Hydrogen stands out as ‘the future fuel option’ for medium-speed engines due to its inherent properties, addressing several challenges faced by traditional fuels today.

The Importance of Future Fuels

  • Reducing Greenhouse Gas Emissions:
    Future fuels like hydrogen, ammonia, and methanol can be produced using renewable energy sources, offering a way to decarbonize sectors that are traditionally associated with high greenhouse gas emissions. These fuels, when used in place of conventional fossil fuels, can significantly lower carbon dioxide and other pollutant emissions, helping combat climate change.
  • Energy Storage and Flexibility:
    Future fuels play a crucial role in energy storage and grid flexibility. Hydrogen, for example, can be stored and transported easily, serving to store excess energy generated from intermittent renewable sources like wind and solar. This addresses the challenge of variability in renewable energy production and helps create a more reliable and resilient energy infrastructure.
  • Diversification of Energy Sources:
    By introducing alternative fuels like ammonia and methanol, the energy industry can diversify its sources of energy. This reduces dependence on finite and geopolitically sensitive resources, enhancing energy security and stability.
  • Innovation and Economic Growth:
    Investing in the development and adoption of future fuel options stimulates innovation and fosters the growth of new industries. The transition to these fuels can create jobs, drive technological advancements, and contribute to economic growth in the renewable energy sector.
