MAN Powers Spanish Ro-Ro Vessel
The recently completed José María Entrecanales roll-on/roll-off vessel from Spanish shipbuilder Navantia is powered by four MAN 9L 48/60B main engines and three MAN 8L 21/31 auxiliary engines. The vessel was delivered to Spanish shipping line Acciona Transmediterránea.
The four main 48/60B engines each deliver 10 800 kW at 500 r/min. MAN said this configuration is widely used in tankers, cruise liners and container ships. The ship builder also incorporated MAN’s TCA66 axial-flow turbocharger into the propulsion system.
The 21/31 auxiliary engines deliver 1935 kW at 1000 r/min and feature a pipe-less design that includes a front-end box housing cooling-water pumps, thermostatic valves, fuel-oil and lube-oil pumps, a lube-oil cooler and a lubricating-oil filter.
