MAN Diesel Commissions First TCA88-25 Turbocharger

Thursday, September 04, 2008

The Business Unit Turbocharger at MAN Diesel has reported on the first shop test on its largest turbocharger, the axial type TCA88–25.  The TCA88-25 was launched in 2006 and MAN Diesel reports that it has already sold some 50 turbochargers.  It extends the application range of the TCA88 turbocharger family to 27,300 kW of engine power per turbocharger from the previous maximum of 23,400 kW for the TCA88-20, which it replaced as the largest TCA88 model. This increase makes it possible to supercharge larger engines with fewer turbochargers, MAN Diesel states.

The first two of the TCA88-25 turbochargers to reach the market have been installed on an MAN B&W brand 8K98MC engine built under licence by CMD in . The engine is to power a 5,100 TEU container vessels for COSCO presently under construction at Jiangnan Shipyard in . In total

COSCO will receive 12 of these vessels, employing a total of 24 TCA88-25 turbochargers on their 8K98MC main engines.

Five further vessels of same specification have been ordered by German shipowner BCH.
