MAN to supply engines for two LNG carriers

MAN Diesel & Turbo has received an order for four MAN B&W 5G70ME-GI engines in connection with Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering agreeing a deal with the BW Group to build two LNG carriers.


The technical engine specification complies with IMO Tier II, with options to include remedies for Tier III compliance at a later stage, according to a statement by MAN.

The 173,400 m3 vessels are scheduled for delivery in late 2017/early 2018 and will be built at DSME’s Okpo shipyard in Geoje, Korea.

The deal represents the second LNG ME-GI contract for DSME after a previous order signed in 2012.
