MAN B&W Win Engine Orders for Container Vessels

Tuesday, November 25, 2003
. The MAN B&W Diesel Group has won orders for engines from the successful 48/60B and 58/64 medium-speed series for eleven new container vessels at three Chinese shipyards. The recently ordered diesel engines are intended for the propulsion of container feeders from the German shipping companies Werner Bockstiegel, Hermann Buss and Peter Doehle. To date, a total of 101 MAN B&W engines, at a capacity of approx. one million HP, manufactured at the Augsburg location, have been ordered from China; 48 engines at a capacity of 400 000 HP during the course of this year alone. This gives the MAN B&W Diesel Group a dominant market share in medium-speed propulsion engines in China. These eleven engines will propel feeder vessels at a capacity of between 900 and 1 100 containers (TEU). German shipyards have achieved worldwide success with this type of vessel. Every large container vessel (from 4 000 to 8 000 TEU) requires between three and six feeder ships, which will take on the further transport of containers into smaller ports. With their 58/64 and 48/60B engines, the MAN B&W Diesel Group is able to offer optimum in-line engines in connection with MAN B&W Alpha propellers for this vessel type. MAN B&W will deliver one main engine of the L48/60B type for a total of seven feeder ships ordered by the Hermann Buss shipping company, Leer, to the Zhoushan S/Y shipyard. The eight-cylinder engine has a capacity of 9 600 kW (13 040 HP) at 500 rpm. The Jiangdong shipyard, Wuhan, ordered 7L58/64 engines at a capacity of 9 730 kW (13 320 HP) and 428 rpm. Two engines of this type, intended for the Peter Doehle shipping company, Hamburg, will be delivered to the Jinling shipyard, Nanjing. Orders previously received from China include engines for tankers, container vessels, tug boats and RoPex ferries.
