MAN Diesel & Turbo has received an order from Daewoo Shipbuilding & Marine Engineering Co., Ltd. (DSME) for four MAN B&W 5G70ME-GI engines.
The order comes following DSME’s agreement with the BW Group to build two LNG carriers.
The technical engine specification complies with IMO Tier II, with options to include remedies for Tier III compliance at a later stage. The 173,400 m3 vessels are scheduled for delivery in late 2017/early 2018 and will be built at DSME’s Okpo shipyard in Geoje, Korea.
The deal represents the second LNG ME-GI contract for DSME after a previous order signed in 2012.
