UECC orders MAN D&T engines for LNG-powered car carriers

UECC orders MAN D&T engines for LNG-powered car carriers

MAN said its 8S50ME-GI dual-fuel engines will power two LNG-powered car/truck carriers, ordered by United European Car Carriers.

The PCTCs will be capable of operating on LNG fuel, heavy fuel oil or marine gas oil, providing greater flexibility and efficiency. They represent the first such vessels globally to be fitted with an LNG propulsion system. When in service, they will be capable of completing a fourteen-day round trip in the Baltic operating solely on LNG, including main engine and auxiliary power generation.

UECC ordered the newbuildings in conjunction with a long-term fleet evaluation process concerning its Baltic fleet. Among the key requirements for new tonnage was an ability to meet all expected environmental legislation (SECA).

UECC has signed an exclusive contract for the supply of LNG fuels to the vessels in the port of Zeebrugge using a dedicated LNG ship-to-ship bunker vessel.

The vessels will be constructed at the NACKS shipyard in Nantong, China, which is a joint venture between Kawasaki Heavy Industries and China Ocean Shipping Company. Delivery for both vessels is scheduled for the second half of 2016.
