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. MAN B&W Diesel A/S developed the K98MC type diesel engine series as a highly efficient main engine for large container carriers in 1999. 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.
