MAN Propulsion Package for Chinese Training Vessel
MAN B&W Diesel A/S, Denmark, has been awarded the contract to supply a complete propulsion package, including computer controlled surveillance, for Dalian Maritime University’s new 2250 ton ocean-going training ship. The system chosen for propulsion includes an MAN B&W Diesel 6S35MC engine, controlled by an MAN B&W Diesel Alphatronic 2000 control system. This main engine design will be the principal source of power for the MAN B&W Diesel controllable pitch (CP) propeller and shaft generator.
The 6S35MC main engine in the DMU training vessel will be provided with a PTO power take off (tunnel gear) to drive a shaft generator. To further facilitate the operation of the ship, it will be equipped with a CP propeller that runs at a constant rate of revolutions. The total engine package will be delivered in June 2006 from MAN B&W Diesel in Frederikshavn, Denmark.
