Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping’s orders for a total of eleven 15,000 TEU containerships have been confirmed by German engine producer MAN Energy Solutions.

The shipping firm exercised an option connected with an order for five boxships placed in November 2017, and requested another six vessels. MAN Energy Solutions was hired to supply the units with two-stroke engines.

The first five engines will be conventional MAN B&W 11G90ME-C units equipped with scrubbers that are due for delivery between 2019-2020. The additional six units will be built as MAN B&W 11G90ME-GI dual-fuel configurations operating on LNG with delivery dates scheduled between 2020-2022.

Each of the six ME-GI engines will feature MAN Energy Solutions’ new pump vaporizer unit (PVU), an innovative, low-cost pump unit for the supply of LNG to the ME-GI engines.

The neo-Panamax containerships were ordered from Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI).
