German engine producer MAN Energy Solutions said it was experiencing a record order-intake within its cruise business, having booked orders to supply seven new cruise ships with engines plus exhaust-gas-treatment systems since the beginning of the year.

The company said the cumulative value of the orders was close to a three-digit million EUR amount.

The orders total almost 300 MW of installed power for cruise ships ranging in size from 50,000 to approximately 140,000 gross tons, and running on fuel types from HFO to LNG. Delivery is scheduled from end-2019 to 2022.

 “The growth in order intake is very gratifying as system technologies that help our customers to increase the efficiency of their plants and reduce emissions play a central role in our business,” Lex Nijsen, Head of Four-Stroke Marine, MAN Energy Solutions, said.

The record is being reported on the back of a MAN’s unveiling of its latest two-stroke engine type, a dual-fuel MAN B&W ME-LGIP engine designed for LPG running,.

MAN Energy Solutions  expects a strong demand for the ME-LGIP engine from very large gas carriers (VLGCs) and coastal vessels.

According to MAN, the ME-LGIP engine has experienced an up to 18% reduction in CO2 and circa 90% reduction in particulate matter when running on LPG, compared with HFO.
