China’s CSSC Marine Power Co., Ltd. (CMP) has renewed its contract with MAN Diesel & Turbo for another 10 years of production of four-stroke medium speed engines.
CMP is an engine-manufacturing division of the Chinese State Shipbuilding Corporation (CSSC).
“The extension of the four-stroke licence agreement between CMP and MAN Diesel & Turbo is a tribute to the very first licence we bonded 35 years ago. Furthermore, the comprehensive cooperation scope refers not only to four-stroke diesel engines, but also to two-stroke low speed engines, CPP propellers, turbochargers, and SCR systems. CSSC values MAN Diesel & Turbo as its premium partner, and sincerely expects to continue this important business partnership to another 35-year milestone”, said Zhang Haisen, Chairman of CSSC Marine Power Co., Ltd.
To date, CMP has delivered 5,000 units of MAN four-stroke diesel engines, equivalent to 4,700,000 kW. CMP also holds a licence agreement for two-stroke MAN B&W engines, which it too renewed for a decade earlier this year.
