Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) has  won type approval for the new 35,300 bhp HiMSEN H46/60V engine from 9 classification societies.

The type approval test completion of the IMO Tier III compliant HiMSEN H46/60V expands Hyundai Heavy’s medium speed marine engine line-up to cover output from 780 bhp to 35,300 bhp.

The HiMSEN engine (Hi-touch Marine & Stationary Engine) was originally developed by Hyundai Heavy in 2000. Since then, the Company has churned out 7,200 units for marine propulsion and land-based power plants. The engines can be customized to have anywhere between 5 and 20 cylinders to reflect customers’ needs.

“The rated power of medium speed engines varies depending on ship size and power generation capacity. With the development of the high power HiMSEN H46/60V, Hyundai Heavy is well positioned to swiftly respond to the demand for high power marine engines for ship propulsion and power generation,” said Mr. Kim Jong-suk, senior vice president of Hyundai Heavy’s Engine & Machinery Division.



 

The classification societies include: ABS, BV, CCS, DNV, GL, KR, LR, NK, and RINA.
