Jiangsu Haihong Engineering Technology Co., Ltd. has ordered 4×MAN 32/40 engines in connection with an order for 2×8,000 m³ trailing suction hopper dredgers.
The scope of delivery covers two ship-sets, with each including a propulsion package consisting of 2×9L32/40 engines, an MAN Alpha twin-screw VBS860 CP propeller, single marine reduction RSVL-800 gearboxes from Renk, plus a Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system that enables the engines to fulfill Tier III in liquid mode.
Lex Nijsen – Vice President and Head of Four-Stroke Marine – MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: “This new project is an excellent reference for us in the Chinese market.”
“It is of especial interest to MAN Diesel & Turbo in that these two new-buildings will be identical, sister vessels to a dredger previously ordered by Jiangsu, but whose propulsion packages did not feature MAN engines.”
Jiangsu Haixin Shipping Heavy Ind. will construct the vessels at its yard in China with delivery scheduled for the end of 2016, and MAN Diesel & Turbo will build the engines at its Augsburg plant in Germany.
