Elcano Turns To MAN For Propulsion

Posted on February 22, 2012

Spanish shipping group Empresa Naviera Elcano S.A. has placed an order for two medium-speed MAN L27/38 engines as part of a propulsion package for a new vessel: a 7000 dwt asphalt and oil products tanker, which will be built at Sedef Shipyard in Turkey.

The two six-cylinder engines will be constructed at the MAN Diesel & Turbo facility in Frederikshavn, Denmark. As main engines, they will each deliver 2040 kW at 800 r/min and be controlled by the MAN SaCoSone system.

Elcano has chosen the engines as part of a MAN Diesel & Turbo propulsion package that also comprises an Alphatronic 2000 propulsion control system, an MAN Alpha VBS Mk 5 CP propeller, and a double-reduction gearbox with multiple PTO clutches operating at 1200 kW at 1200 r/min.
