MAN Diesel Extends Geographical Reach
The first ME-B engine built in China was recently produced by Yichang Marine Diesel Engine Plant in Hubei Province. The engine, an MAN B&W 6S35ME-B9 yields 5,220 kW at 167 rpm with an MEP of 21 bar recently completed a successful shoptest. It has been ordered by the Chinese company Zhejiang ShengRong Shipping.
MAN Diesel recognizes that with the Chinese engine-building sector on board, this is a significant stage in the growth of the ME-B engine. China continues to represent one of the world's most dynamic economies and the appearance of the first ME-B engine in this market is a positive boost for MAN Diesel.
The ME-B series is available in 35-, 40-, 46-, 50-, and 60-cm models in the smaller bore range, while MAN Diesel's ME-C concept covers the medium- to large bore segment of the market.
