MAN B&W Brand Sets New Record

Monday, April 14, 2008

MES cumulative (total) production of MAN B&W engines MAN Diesel’s Japanese licensee, Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Co. Ltd. (MES), is celebrating a new milestone with its cumulative production of MAN B&W branded engines reaching the 60-million-BHP mark at the end of last month, a world record for a single brand.
The new mark comes hard on the heels of the 50 million BHP mark, which MES reached just three years ago. This is in great part due to MES extending its production facilities within the last few years, pushing its capacity to an impressive 5 million BHP per year. The new record came into being with the completion of an MAN B&W 6S50MC-C Mark 7 engine at MES’s Tamano Works on March 26.
