Karpowership, MAN ink deal for 48 dual-fuel engines

Turkey’s Karpowership, part of Karadeniz, and German engine maker MAN Energy Solutions have signed a contract for the delivery of a total of 48 dual-fuel engines for Karpowership’s fleet of powerships.

MAN said in a statement that the engine order consists of MAN 18V51/60DF dual-fuel engines with a mechanical output of 20.7 MW each, while the engines will be split between a number of Powerships.

In addition to the engines, MAN will also supply the control systems for the powerships as well as other electromechanical equipment.

MAN did not provide the price tag of the contract.

Karpowership has the world’s largest fleet of powerships. The active fleet currently comprises a total of 36 powerships with a total capacity of 6,000 MW.

The future newbuilds equipped with MAN engines will also be deployed globally and in various regions of Asia, South and Central America, and Africa, the statement said.

Karpowership aims to expand its activities into the natural gas, biomethane, hydrogen, and LNG space by leveraging its experience with floating energy infrastructure.

The company launched its first LNG-to-power project in Indonesia in 2020.

In September 2023, it signed a memorandum of understanding with Argentina-based Galileo Technologies to develop solutions in the FLNG sector and also other areas.

Most recently, the firm joined forces with Pertamina International Shipping (PIS), a shipping unit of Indonesia’s state-owned energy firm Pertamina, to develop LNG infrastructure.
