MAN Diesel & Turbo Scoops Major Container Vessel Order

MAN Diesel & Turbo has won the order from MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company for 11 × 23,000 TEU container vessels equipped with 11 × MAN B&W 11G95ME-C9.5 main engines.
Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) will construct six of the vessels while Daewoo Shipping Marine Engineering (DSME) will construct the remainder.

Bjarne Foldager, Vice President Sales & Promotion, Two-Stroke Business MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: This order underlines the positive, long-term business relationship between MSC and MAN Diesel & Turbo. Its a significant order that cements our strong position within the large containership segment where the G-type is the markets preferred engine.
The G prefix before an MAN B&W engine means it has a design with an ultra-long stroke that reduces engine speed, thereby paving the way for ship designs with unprecedented high-efficiency.

G-type engines longer stroke results in a lower rpm for the engine driving the propeller. This lower optimum engine speed allows the use of a larger propeller and is, ultimately, significantly more efficient in terms of engine propulsion. Together with an optimised engine design, this means that the MSC newbuildings will enjoy a reduced fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions.

MAN Diesel & Turbo reports that, to date, it has 71 × G95 engines on order of which 23 have already entered service.
Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI-EMD) will construct the ME-C engines for SHI, while Doosan Engine will construct those for DSME. The final vessel in the series is due for delivery by March 15, 2020.
MAN Diesel & Turbo has also won the order to supply the GenSets for each vessel in the form of 3 × MAN 9L32/40 + 2 × MAN 6L32/40 units, all to be constructed by STX Engine in Korea.
