First MAN B&W 7S65ME-C Ready for Service
Long-standing licensee, Hitachi-Zosan of Japan has completed the first MAN B&W Diesel S65ME-C two-stroke engine. This is the first of three engines for Greek owner Dynacom. The 7S65ME-C main engines have been selected to power three Ice-class Suezmax tankers. The vessels are to be built by Universal Shipbuilding Corp. in Japan.
This engine has been tailor-made for fuel efficient power production for a broad range of medium sized vessels. With power outputs from 14 350 kW up to 22 960 kW, this compact power unit presents owners with a range of cutting-edge technologies designed to optimise fuel use, reduce lube oil consumption, extend time between overhauls and lower overall maintenance costs.
The electronic control gives precise control of the fuel injection and exhaust valve timing, thereby optimising fuel efficiency. This control is also helped through the adoption of innovative design enhancements that have been brought together in one package.
Developments such an improved ring pack configuration, bore-cooled cylinder liners, better exhaust valve performance and combustion temperature parameters greatly improved through the use of the OROS-profiled piston crown all create conditions for optimal engine operation.
