Marine News

The Company:

MAN Engines and Components develops, produces and sells a wide range of efficient diesel and gas engines for extremely varied applications in many industries. 
Primary Product / Service:
MAN offers a wide range of high-speed four stroke diesel engines for commercial shipping. For heavy operation – with unlimited operating hours and working up to 100% full load (tugboats and other workboats), MAN Truck & Bus provides a range of outputs from 190 kW to 735 kW (258 HP up to 1,000 HP). All MAN engines excel through their high power development even at low speeds with low fuel consumption. The advantages of V-engines in the power range from 662 kW to 1,397 kW (900 HP to 1,900 HP) lie in their outstanding power efficiency and compactness. The engines are delivered ready for installation, designed for optimum performance in various operating conditions. Introduction of the MAN V12-1900 is the most powerful high-speed four-stroke diesel engine of MAN Engines to date. The twelve-cylinder V engine provides 1,397 kW (1,900 hp) and was designed for luxury yachts of over 100 feet. The first engine is installed and running.
The Case:
Every single engine is tested via cold or hot test; the cold testing procedure saves approximately 1 million liters of fuel and 3,000 tons of CO2 per year. The Atlantic Pioneer, operated by Atlantic Wind Transfers and built by Blount Boats, is the first US flagged crew transfer windfarm vessel. The 21m aluminum catamaran is equipped with twin MAN D2862 LE466 medium duty engines rated at 2,100 rpm. With an output of 1,400 hp per engine the vessel reaches a top speed of 31 knots while burning 140 gallon per hour, total for both engines.
