NYK has LNG tankers equipped with MAN engines

The Japanese shipping company Nippon Yusen Kaisha (NYK) has ordered propulsion technology from MAN Energy Solutions for four LNG tanker newbuildings.

The four LNG tankers with a capacity of 174,000 m3 will each be equipped with two 5G70ME-GA Mk. 10.5 engines. All eight engines will also be equipped with so-called EGRBP (Exhaust Gas Recirculation ByPass) technology to reduce emissions [ds_preview].

The exhaust gas after-treatment system was also developed by MAN Energy Solutions.

“We have developed this engine to fit most modern LNG tankers,” says Bjarne Foldager, Head of Two-Stroke Business at MAN Energy Solutions, “And in fact, all ME-GA orders to date have been exclusively for this segment. Demand for the engine has remained high since its launch, primarily due to our in-house developed exhaust gas recirculation system, which has proven itself in operation for more than a decade and is being continuously optimized.”

MAN is delighted with its first order from Japan

Thomas S. Hansen, Head of Promotion and Customer Support, MAN Energy Solutions, adds: “Since May 2021, we have received more than 278 orders for ME-GA engines. Of these, seven ships with a total of 14 ME-GA engines onboard are already in operation. Although we have already received orders for ME-GA engines from Korea and China, this is the first order from this well-known Japanese shipping company, and we are grateful that NYK trusts our product. We have a strong and long-standing relationship with NYK and are delighted to now count them among our ME-GA customers.”
