Daewoo Shipbuilding and Marine Engineering (DSME) has ordered another six MAN B&W 11G95ME-GI Mk10.5 main engines in connection with the building of six ultra-large, 23,500+-teu container vessels for Hapag-Lloyd.


DSMW has ordered six MAN B&W 11G95ME-GI Mk10.5 main engines for the Hapag-LLoyd ultra-large boxships it is building.

The engines will be built in Korea and will be able to run on LNG or conventional fuel, meeting Tier III emission standards through Selective Catalytic Reduction.

The first is expected to be delivered in May 2022 and DSME is scheduled to deliver the six new vessels between April and December 2023.

Wayne Jones OBE, Chief Sales Officer and Member of the Executive Board of MAN Energy Solutions, said: “The exercising of this option is a great show of confidence in the ME-GI engine and showcases MAN Energy Solutions’ continued leadership in the dual-fuel segment.

“As public criticism of emissions within the shipping segment increases exponentially, the ME-GI – with its extremely low methane-slip – is an increasingly attractive propulsion-solution, and particularly so for vessels such as large container ships.”
