Record-Breaking Engine Enters Service

The largest and most powerful engine from MAN Diesel & Turbo’s portfolio ever designed and built has entered service. Built by Doosan Engine in Korea and rated at 75,570kW (103,000hp), the engine is an MAN B&W 11G95ME-C9.5 two-stroke type that acts as prime mover aboard MSC Jade.

The 19,437TEU container vessel is operated by Mediterranean Shipping Company (MSC), the global container shipping company. Daewoo Shipbuilding (DSME) delivered the newbuilding on 20 May, which subsequently sailed the short tour to Busan. MSC Jade also features four MAN L32/40 auxiliary engines (two 8L32/40 + 2 × 9L32/40 units), each with a single MAN NR34/S turbocharger.

Doosan Engine reported the main engine’s initial start during October 2015 and a successful shop-test subsequently followed. The engine is the first in a series of six ordered by MSC, with a second sister-vessel shortly scheduled for sea trials and two further vessels, currently finishing construction at Samsung Heavy Industries, due for sea trials during June.
