China Launch Tier III-Friendly MAN 175D Engine

MAN Diesel & Turbo have launched their Tier III-friendly, high-speed engine the MAN 175D at the Marintec 2015 marine exhibition in Shanghai this week.

Originally launched in Europe towards the end of 2014, MAN Diesel & Turbo representatives at the Chinese exhibition confirmed that it was local requests for a large, high-speed engines that made it imperative for the company to launch this particular engine in China.

The MAN 175D scores highly in terms of eco-friendliness. Its compact and modular exhaust-gas after-treatment system uses the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) method and is based on the MAN Ad Blue® technology that has undergone many thousands of hours of testing. The engine therefore already satisfies the strict IMO Tier III environmental standards before it hits the market.

MAN Diesel & Turbo has also geared the MAN 175D as part of a high-speed propulsion package with a gearbox as well as MAN propellers and shafts in order to optimise efficiency.

MAN Diesel & Turbo also chose the Marintec exhibition to sign a Technical Cooperation Agreement with the China Classification Society (CCS).

The Agreement provides for the strengthening of the co-operation between the two companies in Intelligent Ship research with regards to data exchange, online monitoring and online service.

CCS also took the opportunity at Marintec to present MAN Diesel & Turbo with a class approval for its PrimeServ Online Service, which is a further step towards the Intelligent Ship concept and more safety for shipowners.
