MAN Diesel & Turbo has won a contract to supply engines for two Greek LNG tankers. Installing the MAN 51/60DF dual-fuel engines on the two newbuildings represents an important first reference in this market segment, says the company.
The order for each ship consists of 2 x 9L51/60DF and 2 x 8L51/60Df engines, with a total performance capacity of 34 MW. When running on diesel, the engines comply with emission restrictions for IMO Tier II, and for gas the engines will come in below the restrictions for IMO Tier III. Both propulsion systems will operate on a combination of oil and gas.
