Nine M A N B & W Holeby GenSets Ordered For Three Containerships To Be Built At Odense Shipyard
MAN B&W Diesel, Holeby has received an order from A.P. Moller of Denmark for nine diesel generator sets for three 4,200-TEU container vessels to be built at Odense Steel Shipyard, Denmark.
The diesel generator sets of type 9L28/32 H, each with an output of 2,010 kw at 720 rpm are for HFO operation according to the Unifuel principle, meaning that they are to be operated on the same low grade and thus, low cost heavy fuel oil as the propulsion engine.
One diesel generator for each ship set will be equipped with ICS, Integrated Charge Air System, developed and patent applied for by MAN B&W Diesel. The ICS concept facilitates operating the diesel generator continuously on HFO in the complete load range from full power down to and including idling.
The successful 28 series which was introduced in 1976 has, through continuous development, represented the latest state-of-art, thus meeting changing market demands.
Orders for this well-proven design have now reached a total of more than 1,200 engines, representing a total number of 1,893,000 kw in the output range 880-3,960 kw.
With the heavy fuel operating, four-stroke, medium-speed engine types of 23 and 28 series as prime movers, MAN B&W Diesel, Holeby has gained a position as market leader for heavy duty diesel power modules, primarily in form of Gen- Sets, but also as PumpSets and Combi-Sets.
The ability to offer tailor-made solutions meeting specified requirements is continuously improved by the introduction of concepts, which are expanding the deliveries to comprise not only diesel power modules but complete systems for production of electricity and alternative auxiliary power.
