Two TCS-PTGs All Abroad Marine Vessels
MAN Diesel & Turbo has received an order for two turbo compound systems including power turbine and generator (TCS-PTG) from Samjin Shipbuilding in Weihai, China.
The TCS-PTGs will be employed aboard two 4700 TEU container vessels currently under construction. Individual MAN B&W 6S80ME-C9.2 low-speed engines will power the vessels, which will be operated by German shipowner Reederei Horst Zeppenfeld.
The order, which includes an option for two additional vessels, represents the first instance for a marine application for MAN Diesel & Turbo’s new generation of TCS-PTG after previous applications at stationary power plants in London and Panama, the company said.
Along with the 2+2 × TCS-PTG20s, MAN Diesel & Turbo will supply 2+2 × TCA88 turbochargers at a total project volume of about €4 million. Delivery is scheduled to begin by the end of 2012.
