Two Greek shipping operators have recently selected one of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s newest, two-stroke, main engines – the G95ME-C – as prime mover for two series of, respectively, 9,000- and 11,000-TEU container vessels.
The G95ME-C9.2 ranks among the largest and most powerful engine the company has ever released to the marine, two-stroke market. The orders cover five confirmed engines – 3 + 2 for the 9,000-TEU series and 2 + 2 for the latter – and one of MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Korean licensees will construct the engines.
Originally announced in July 2013, MAN Diesel & Turbo states that the G95ME-C was developed specifically for the large, modern container vessel segment and is optimised for efficiency and green technology.
HHIC Phil (Hanjin Heavy Industries Corporation Philippines) will construct the five vessels.
