Sales Of MAN B&W Diesel's MC Engine Series Now More Than 10 Million BHP

The aggregate output of MAN B&W Diesel's MC Series of lowspeed crosshead engines has now comfortably topped 10 million bhp.

The breaching of that barrier, and the dominant position in world propulsion markets, is even more significant in light of the comparatively short time since the launching of the MC Series program in 1983. By September 1 this year, 885 MC engines with a total output of 10,467,630 bhp (nominal) were in service or on order.

The uniflow-scavenged, twostroke MC range now embraces eight bore sizes from 260 to 900 mm offering single-engine outputs from as low as 950 bhp to 64,320 bhp— the widest power range available for economical propulsion from any engine manufacturer. Three different stroke/bore ratios—2.875:1 (K models), 3.24:1 (L models), and 3.8:1 (S models)—and individual layout flexibility allows the operator to select an engine that most precisely matches the intended newbuilding or retrofit application.
