MAN B&W Revises 32/40 Engine
MAN B&W Diesel Group has revised its 32/40 engine series. Mainly, the engine's soot concentration was reduced under the visibility limit almost over the whole load range. At the same time, the fuel consumption sank. The company received two orders for the delivery of six 32/40 engines in total. Two 9L32/40 large-bore diesel engines with an output of just under 5,900 hp each will, by the end of the year, be built for the German shipping company Bockstiegel, Emden, delivered to China and installed in two new 502-teu container vessels in the Jingling shipyard, Nanjing. In spring 2003, MAN B&W Diesel will deliver the engine components for four 7L32/40 (approx. 4,600 hp) to the Spanish licensee IZAR in Cartagena. The engines will propel a so-called RoPax ferry, which will be in service between the Faroe Islands.
