Mitsui-MAN B&W Diesel Engine Achieves World Record

Friday, March 28, 2008

This world record is established when MES completes the construction of Mitsui-MAN B&W 6S50MC-C Mark 7 at its Tamano Works (Tamano City, Okayama Prefecture) for Sanoyasu Hishino Meisho Corporation (with president Mr. Shinich Kimura), who will install such engine to a chip carrier of 4.35 million cubic feet (shipyard No. 1260) to her owner, Mitsui OSK Lines.
In the wake of growing demand for new shipbuilding boosted by active ocean cargo transport, the production of diesel engine by MES is significantly increasing recently. Only after two years and five months since MES achieved 50 million horse power production in October 2005, it establishes accumulated 60 million horse power record since it produced the first engine in 1928.
The annual production in fiscal year 2006 was 4.01 million horsepower and will be 4.63 million, the record high annual production, in fiscal year 2007.
Since the technical agreement with B&W, (presently MAN B&W) in 1926 on the production of diesel engine, MES has been producing engines with excellent records as a leading engine manufacturer of the world. MES is also strengthening the after-service sector of the engine business including the newly developed Marine Diesel Engine Performance/Life Expectancy Diagnosis System (product names “e-GICS” and "e-GICSW" ) to which the communications satellite and internet are fully utilized and is committed to ensure the high quality customer service.
