MAN Diesel & Turbo engines for LNG newbuilds

MAN Diesel & Turbo engines for LNG newbuilds

MAN Diesel & Turbo said it has secured further orders for its MAN 51/60DF engine.

After a longer period of evaluation, an international consortium, including Teekay LNG Partners, has selected a Dual-Fuel Diesel Electric (DFDE) propulsion solution featuring 2×12V51/60DF + 2×8L51/60DF engines for each of four Liquid Natural Gas Carriers (LNGCs).

The new order follows that which MAN Diesel & Turbo announced in July 2013 when it won the contract to supply 30 × MAN 51/60DF dual-fuel engines for six LNGCs. In both instances, the DFDE solution provides the customer with the optimum redundancy.

The engines from both orders will be produced at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s Augsburg, Germany facility with delivery scheduled during 2015. They are specified as IMO Tier II-compliant in diesel mode with lower exhaust-gas emissions in gas mode than IMO Tier III stipulates. The new LNG carriers will be constructed at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard in Shanghai, China’s only builder of large LNG carriers, as will those from the July 2013 order.

Following delivery between September 2017 and January 2019, the ships will support the shipment of LNG cargoes from BG Group’s Queensland Curtis Island LNG project in Australia.
