At the end of April, 2013 in Korea, MAN Diesel & Turbo’s latest G-type engine passed its Type Approval Test at HHI-EMD, the engine and machinery division of Hyundai Heavy Industries. The ultra-long-stroke G60ME-C9 engine went through its paces under the watchful eye of many interested observers, including representatives from the major classification societies.

MAN Diesel & Turbo reports having close to 200 G-type engines on order, spread over a broad spectrum of applications and a number of different licensees – with HHI-EMD leading the field – and states that it has the fastest market acceptance any engine series in the MAN B&W portfolio has ever received.

The engine is due to power a tanker owned by Istanbul-based Densa Tankers, the international ship management and chartering company specializing in oil and chemical tankers. The vessel will be managed by Thome, the Singapore-based provider of global, integrated ship management services.
