MAN B&W Diesel Selected By TOTE

Totem Ocean Trailer Express (TOTE), Tacoma, Wash., has chosen MAN B&W four-stroke engines for their new RoRo vessels. Each vessel's diesel electric propulsion plant will be outfitted with six MAN B&W Diesel engines comprised of four MAN B&W 9L58/64 engines of 11,700 kW each, and two 9L27/38 engines with 2,700 kW each, for a total output of 52,200 kW.

The vessels, which are scheduled for delivery in 2002, will be constructed at NASSCO in San Diego, Calif, for operation between Alaska and Washington.

The vessels' resiliently-mounted engines are designed to withstand extreme roll requirements as part of their regular operating scenario.

MAN B&W's latest innovation, the 27/38 series engine, will be implemented for power generation on board. The 27/38 series covers output ranges between 1,500 kW and 3,060 kW, and is part of a new breed of medium-speed engines from MAN B&W, which provides easy installation and maintenance, as well as economic operation.
