MAN Energy Solutions won the order to supply the engine for a new dredger in southern China. 

The MAN 9L48/60CR unit will power the newbuilding vessel currently under construction at Dongguan Xiandai Shipbuilding Co. for sister company, Dongguan Rundong Shipping Co., Ltd., which will produce sand for the local construction industry.

The four-stroke 9L48/60CR engine is rated at 9,720 kW @ 514 rpm and features MAN Energy Solutions’ exhaust-gas turbocharging and two-stage charge-air cooling. It is designed for heavy-duty operation – even with fuel qualities down to HFO-700 cSt / 50°C. Additionally, a charge-air bypass on the engine is designed to improve operational behavior at reduced engine speeds. The engine will also feature SaCoSone, MAN Energy Solutions’ engine-control system.
