New MAN Engine Completes the Picture
With the MAN 12V175D, MAN Diesel & Turbo will be presenting the first cylinder version of its new high-speed engine family at this year’s maritime trade fair SMM in Hamburg. The twelve-cylinder model, developed especially for use in the shipping industry, is part of a product initiative aimed at providing MAN customers with a product portfolio that covers every power requirement, from high to low speed.
“With the MAN 175D, we are supplementing and completing MAN Diesel & Turbo’s and MAN Truck & Bus’s product portfolio in the maritime sector,” said Dr. Hans-Otto Jeske, Chief Technology Officer and acting CEO for MAN Diesel & Turbo.
The new engine will be offered with an output spectrum from 1,500 to 2,200 Kilowatts and will be available to the first pilot customers from as early as 2015. The 12-cylinder version of the MAN 175D being presented in Hamburg is optimized for propelling ferries, offshore supply vessels, tug boats and working vessels. Other central areas of application such as the markets for super-yachts and marine applications are served by additional specialist model versions.
The engine’s compact and modular exhaust gas after-treatment system uses the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) method and is based on the MAN Ad Blue technology. The engine will therefore satisfy the strict environmental standards of the IMO Tier III from the moment it hits the market.
