Tuesday, June 28, 2011

On June 15, MAN Diesel & Turbo added another two-stroke licensee to its roster at a signing ceremony in China with CSSC Guangzhou Marine Engine Co. Ltd. (GMD). An off-shoot of the state-owned CSSC Group, GMD is based close to the major Chinese city of Guangzhou and the special administrative region of Hong Kong, and has undertaken to produce 3 million hp of engines in an initial building period. Construction will take place at a purpose-built facility that will begin production at the beginning of 2012.

Klaus Engberg, Senior Vice President Two-Stroke Licensing, MAN Diesel & Turbo said: “We are delighted to add yet another member to our licensee family. GMD intends to make full use of the MAN B&W two-stroke portfolio and is establishing itself in the heart of Southeast Asia with its thriving shipbuilding industry. Naturally, GMD will be ideally placed to supply prime movers to this important market segment and we look forward to a fruitful partnership in the future.”
