MAN to Propel Pasha Hawaii’s LNG-Fuelled Boxships

MAN Energy Solutions has received an order to provide the propulsion systems for two containership newbuildings under construction for Honolulu-based shipping company Pasha Hawaii.

The 2,525-TEU vessels, which will join the shipping company’s Hawaii trade lane, will be constructed at the Keppel AmFELS yard in Brownsville, Texas.

MAN informed that each system on order will comprise a 7S80ME-GI Mk 9.5 main engine, 3 × MAN 6L35/44DF GenSets and an MAN Alpha FPP propeller system.

“This is yet another order within the container segment and cements the ME-GI concept,” Bjarne Foldager, Vice President, Sales & Promotion, Two-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions, said.

Doosan Engine will build the main engines in Korea, which will meet Tier III emission standards by use of an Exhaust Gas Recirculation system.

Similarly, MAN Energy Solutions Augsburg works will build the auxiliary engines which will meet Tier III with the aid of a Selective Catalytic Reduction system.

Engine delivery is scheduled for 2019 with the two vessels, respectively, due for launch in the first and third quarter of 2020.

The new vessels will operate fully on LNG from day one in service, reducing environmental impact and increasing fuel efficiency. Energy savings will also be achieved with a state-of-the-art engine, an optimised hull form, and an underwater propulsion system with a high-efficiency rudder and propeller, The company explained.
