MAN Diesel & Turbo has announced a further order for its MAN 51/60DF dual-fuel engine.
An international consortium, including Teekay LNG Partners, has selected a Dual-Fuel Diesel Electric (DFDE) propulsion solution featuring 2×12V51/60DF + 2×8L51/60DF engines for each of four liquefied natural gas carriers (LNGCs).
The new order follows one announced in July 2013, when MAN Diesel & Turbo won the contract to supply 30 × MAN 51/60DF dual-fuel engines for six LNGCs. In both instances, the DFDE solution provides the customer with the optimum redundancy.
The engines from both orders will be produced at MAN Diesel & Turbo’s facility in Augsburg, Germany with delivery scheduled during 2015. The engines are IMO Tier II-compliant in diesel mode, with lower exhaust-gas emissions in gas mode than IMO Tier III stipulates. The new LNG carriers will be constructed at Hudong-Zhonghua Shipyard in Shanghai.
Following delivery between September 2017 and January 2019, the ships will support the shipment of LNG cargoes from BG Group’s Queensland Curtis Island LNG project.
