Yangzijang orders MAN ME-GI engines for Seaspan’s LNG-powered containerships

China’s Yangzijiang Shipbuilding has ordered MAN ME-GI engines to install them on ten LNG-powered 7,000-teu container vessels it is building for Seaspan.

Germany’s MAN Energy Solutions says the order includes ten 7G80ME-C10.5-GI engines, while the contract includes an option for five further vessels.

MAN said the engine delivery would take place from October 2023 to 2024.

Upon completion, the newbuildings would become the largest ME-GI-powered container vessels built by a Chinese shipyard, it said.

Seapan has in total chartered fifteen 7,000 TEU LNG-powered container vessels to Israel’s Zim.

Also, these deals follow a contract signed by the duo earlier this year for ten 15,000 TEU LNG-powered vessels.

Seaspan, a unit of Atlas Corp, placed the order for these dual-fuel ships at South Korea’s Samsung Heavy Industries.
