MAN Receives Orders for Newly Developed Engine Types
MAN B&W Diesel has received orders for its newly introduced S35ME-B and S40ME-B type engines. Içdas Çelik Enerji Terasne ve Ulasim Sanayi A.S. in Turkey has just signed a contract for delivery of 2 x 8S35ME-B for delivery in 2008. The engines will be built by MAN B&W Diesel in Frederikshavn. The contract also covers MAN B&W Diesel CP-propellers of type VBS1280-ODS. InterShip Navigation of Cyprus has ordered 6S40ME-B engines for 2 x 6 multipurpose vessels of 25 000 dwt, the first lot to be built in China. Six of the engines will be built by STX in Korea.
With the new ME-B series, MAN B&W Diesel introduces the ME concept to its small bore two-stroke engines, utilizing the electronic fuel injection control introduced on the large bore engines. Based on simple and well-proven diesel technology, the S35ME-B and the S40ME-B provide an engine that is geared to market requirements for electronic control, size reduction, fuel economy, high power, reliability, longer time between overhauls, lower propeller speed and better vessel manoeuvrability in the 5000 to 25 000 dwt market.
Advanced, user-friendly, electronic control of the fuel injection provides owners with an efficient way of managing emissions to meet current and future environmental requirements, as well as offering full control of energy management, giving fuel economy down to 170 g/kWh. Like on the larger ME-engines, the Alpha Lubricator is standard, with the benefit of a very low total lube oil consumption. The advanced electronic user interface is easy to handle and monitors performance, allowing precise adjustments of the economy-vital variables of lubricating oil and fuel. The electronic fuel injection management system of the S35ME-B and the S40ME-B gives optimal engine performance in powerful, economic, weight-saving and future-oriented diesel engines.
