Dalian propeller deal coincides with order involving the world’s largest car carriers

On August 30, 2013 MAN Diesel & Turbo signed an agreement regarding the production of its Kappel propeller portfolio with Dalian Marine Propeller Co., Ltd (DMMP) – part of the China Shipbuilding Industry Corporation (CSIC) Group – at its facility in Frederikshavn, Denmark. The deal allows DMMP to produce and sell MAN Alpha Kappel design propellers in China.

MAN Diesel & Turbo subsequently announced that DMMP has signed a Kappel design propeller contract with Xiamen Shipbuilding Industry Co. Ltd for at least three 8,500 ceu PCTC (Pure Car/Truck Carrier) car carriers, the largest of their kind in the world. The shipowner is Höegh Autoliners, the leading global provider of Ro/Ro vehicle transportation services. Frederikshavn reports that tank tests on different propeller configurations displayed the Kappel design’s superior efficiency compared to other propellers.
