Germany’s MAN Energy Solutions said Wednesday it has won multiple orders within its cruise business in the first eight months of this year.
The company has won orders to supply seven new cruise ships with engines plus exhaust-gas treatment systems – with a cumulative value close to a three-digit million euro
amount, according to a statement by MAN Energy Solutions.
The record 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 heavy fuel oil (HFO) to liquefied natural gas (LNG).
Delivery is scheduled from end-2019 to 2022.
The engine technology and emission-reduction concepts ordered cover a wide range of MAN’s solution portfolio for the marine business: from type 32/44CR engines with fully electronic common-rail injection systems capable of operating on HFO, to dual-fuel type 51/60DF engines that enable the use of both LNG and oil-based fuels, the statement said.
