MAN Diesel & Turbo has won the order from MSC Mediterranean Shipping Company for 11 × 23,000 TEU container vessels equipped with 11 × MAN B&W 11G95ME-C9.5 main engines. Samsung Heavy Industries (SHI) will construct six of the vessels while Daewoo Shipping Marine Engineering (DSME) will construct the remainder.

Bjarne Foldager, Vice President – Sales & Promotion, Two-Stroke Business – MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: “This order underlines the positive, long-term business relationship between MSC and MAN Diesel & Turbo. It’s a significant order that cements our strong position within the large containership segment where the G-type is the market’s preferred engine.”

The ‘G’ prefix before an MAN B&W engine means it has a design with an ultra-long stroke that reduces engine speed, thereby paving the way for ship designs with unprecedented high-efficiency.

G-type engines’ longer stroke results in a lower rpm for the engine driving the propeller. This lower optimum engine speed allows the use of a larger propeller and is, ultimately, significantly more efficient in terms of engine propulsion. Together with an optimised engine design, this means that the MSC newbuildings will enjoy a reduced fuel consumption and reduced CO2 emissions.

MAN Diesel & Turbo reports that, to date, it has 71 × G95 engines on order of which 23 have already entered service.

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI-EMD) will construct the ME-C engines for SHI, while Doosan Engine will construct those for DSME. The final vessel in the series is due for delivery by March 15, 2020.

MAN Diesel & Turbo has also won the order to supply the GenSets for each vessel in the form of 3 × MAN 9L32/40 + 2 × MAN 6L32/40 units, all to be constructed by STX Engine in Korea.

MSC is a privately owned global organisation operating a network of over 480 offices in 155 countries, employing over 70,000 people. With an established fleet of 490 container vessels and an intake capacity of circa 3.1 million teu, the company’s global sailing schedules cover 200 routes, calling at 500 ports.
