Singapore-based Eastern Pacific Shipping has exercised an option connected with an order for 5 15,000-TEU boxships placed in November 2017, and requested another six vessels.

All 11 engines involved in the order will be powered by MAN B&W two-stroke engines, MAN Energy Solutions said in a statement on Wednesday.

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, MAN Energy Solutions said.

Each of the 11 neo-Panamax boxships will be constructed at Hyundai Samho Heavy Industries (HSHI).

Each of the 6 ME-GI engines will feature MAN Energy Solutions’ new pump vaporizer unit (PVU), a pump unit for the supply of LNG to the ME-GI engines.

MAN Energy Solutions reports that it has over 200 ME-GI units on its order books or already in service, with references in every major marine segment.

The company also states that it has confirmed 250+ sales within its entire portfolio of dual-fuel engines, all running on LNG or other clean fuels.
