Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co., Ltd. (MES) has completed the world’s largest class diesel engine (MITSUI-MAN B&W 1198MC type: 69,920kW) at its Tamano Works and delivered the engine to Imabari Shipbuilding co., Ltd. in October 2001. The engine has been installed on a 6,000 TEU container carrier. The second 11K98MC type was also completed for the same shipbuilder in December 2001.

The cylinder bore is 980mm and can develop 7,780ps (per cylinder). In April last year, MES completed the MITSUI-MAN B&W 10K98MC (57,200,W) in the same series for 5,500 TEU container carrier built by Imabari Shipbuilding Co. Ltd., Since the technical license agreement with B&W Diesel in 1926, MES achieved a total construction of 38 million ps for the B&W diesel engines in October 2001, which is the world record. MES will achieve 2.5 million ps of engine production in the current fiscal year on the ship trial basis.
