MAN B&W to Power MAERSK AHTS

Thursday, May 04, 2006
MAN B&W Diesel A/S, Frederikshavn, Denmark has been awarded a contract to supply complete twin-screw twin-in/single-out medium speed propulsion packages for eight Anchor Handling Tug Supply Vessels (AHTS). The newbuildings, which will be built by Aker Yards AS, Norway, were ordered by the A.P. Moller – Maersk Group’s Maersk Supply Service. The finalized vessels are expected to be delivered from Norway (from both Aker’s Brattvaag and Langsten shipyards) with two month intervals during 2008 and 2009. The AHTS vessel design, designated VS 472, is designed by the renowned Norwegian group of ship design consultants, Vik-Sandvik AS. For MAN B&W Diesel - this order, which follows a number of offshore contracts, is a substantial order now with another 32 main engines - strongly positioned in the offshore support vessel market sector. The quadruple-engine propulsion packages are each based on a twin-screw, diesel-mechanical, twin-in/single-out plant with 7 cyl and 8 cyl L27/38 engines arranged in a ‘father and son’ configuration with Renk double gears.
