Hyundai Heavy Industries Co., Ltd. (HHI) has  won type approval for the new 35,300 bhp HiMSEN H46/60V engine from 9 classification societies.

The type approval test completion of the IMO Tier III compliant HiMSEN H46/60V expands Hyundai Heavy’s medium speed marine engine line-up to cover output from 780 bhp to 35,300 bhp.

The HiMSEN engine (Hi-touch Marine & Stationary Engine) was originally developed by Hyundai Heavy in 2000.
