    Med Marine orders MAN 175D for Svitzer ice-breaking tugs

    MAN Energy Solutions has won the contract to supply the main propulsion engines for two new ice-breaking ASD tugs, to be operated by Svitzer in the Scandanavian region. Each vessel, rated with 60 tonnes of bollard pull, will be powered by 2 × MAN 12V175D MM, IMO Tier II engines, each rated at 2,040 kWm at 1,800 rpm, the company said in its release.

    All four engines will be supplied by MAN Energy Solutions directly from its purpose-built, state-of-the-art production facility in Frederikshavn, Denmark to Turkish-based, Med Marine. The vessels are due to enter service by the end-2020.

    MAN Energy Solutions reports that – initially – the installed engines will be designated with an IMO Marpol Tier II NOx emissions compliance certificate. However, both vessels’ engine rooms will be designed in such a way that additional MAN-supplied Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipment can be installed at a later date, thus raising the vessels compliance to IMO Tier III emissions standard. Key factors that enable this are the compact and modular construction of the MAN Energy Solutions’ SCR components, as well as the MAN175D engine hardware requiring no subsequent modification, making retro-upgrading easily achievable.

    Another significant factor considered as important to the success of this installation is the overall life-cycle costs of these modern diesel engines. MAN Energy Solutions believes that the MAN 175D is amongst the most fuel-efficient, high-speed engine available for marine propulsion. Coupled with this, the low cost of maintenance during the operational lifetime of the engines makes them a very competitive option for tug owners and operators to consider.

    About the MAN 175D engine

    MAN Energy Solutions has developed the MAN 175D engine range to supplement and complete its product portfolio in the maritime sector. The 12, 16 & 20-cylinder variants of the engine are available with outputs ranging from 1,500 to 4,000 kW and are optimised for propelling ferries, offshore supply vessels, tug boats and other working vessels. Other market areas, such as superyachts and naval marine applications are also served by additional, specialist model versions. It is also an extremely eco-friendly engine, being designed from the outset with compliance to the latest, as well as future, exhaust-gas-emission requirements and utilises a very compact and flexible SCR system, which enables vessel designers to optimise space on board to the maximum.
