MAN scores first order for ME-GA engines

Germany’s MAN Energy Solutions said it has won the first order for its new ME-GA dual-fuel engine.

MAN’s head of two-stroke promotion and sales, Thomas Hansen, said in a video the firm secured the “very first orders for our MAN B&W Otto-cycle ME-GA engine, together with our licensee Hyundai Heavy Industries.”

Hyundai Heavy, which recently won several orders, would install the engines on LNG carriers. Hansen did not reveal any additional information on the order.

To remind, the German firm previously said it would deliver the first ME-GA engine in 2022.

Volkswagen’s MAN said this in March following a demonstration of the low-speed engine designed for LNG/fuel-oil running at a ceremony live-streamed from its Copenhagen Research Centre.

The new engine is an Otto-cycle variant of the company’s ME-GI engine.

“As its pre-mixed combustion results in low NOx emissions, the ME-GA engine is inherently Tier II and Tier III compliant in gas-operation mode,” MAN said.

To fully utilise its dual-fuel potential in Tier III areas, MAN will offer the engine with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR).
