MAN B&W-powered container vessels drive the global trade.
Container vessels have dramatically reduced the cost of international trade and increased its volume – with wide-reaching effects around the world.
Clean, efficient container vessels in high demand
Today, around 90% of non-bulk cargo is distributed in containers stacked on container vessels. The sheer transport volume of this sector puts great pressure on the environment – but offers great opportunities for innovation.
Every day, container vessels transport goods everywhere around the globe. They are truly ubiquitous, making up the vast majority of marine shipments. Operators generally call for cost-efficient propulsion systems with low initial costs, but also need enough auxiliary power to operate reefer containers. Balancing this strong performance with efficiency and environmental requirements is difficult. Container ships frequently sail in environmentally sensitive areas, and meeting tougher NOx, SOx, and particulate emission limits is a must. To ensure profitable, responsible shipping for years to come, solutions for container vessels must ensure reliable, economic power generation and distribution with a minimal impact on the environment.
Respond powerfully: Our two-stroke engines for container ships
The ideal solutions for merchant vessels
Our two-stroke engines are the preferred choice for the propulsion of ocean-going merchant vessels, like your container ship. These types of engines are manufactured by a family of licensees, who are mainly based in Asia, and serve a variety of marine applications.
Optimized fuel and lube oil consumption, as well as improved low-load operation, are just a few of the many advantages offered by our electronically controlled ME engines, that are based on the many decades of success enjoyed by their mechanically controlled predecessors.
Discover the MAN B&W two-stroke engines for your container vessel!The ideal choice for container ships is the ME-GI, a highly efficient, flexible propulsion solution. With the introduction of the ME-GI dual fuel engine, we have entered a new era of diesel history, from which especially your merchant ship in particular will benefit. With the ME-GI, we can offer vessel owners the option of using fuel oil or gas, depending on price and availability.
But the ME-GI is not only the right choice for your container ship; our ME-LGI engine with liquid gas injection is also a perfect fit for all kinds of cargo vessels. Because of the possibility of using fuels with a low flash point and low sulfur content (such as LPG and methanol), it is an effective alternative for container vessels that are traditionally powered by our fuel oil-burning engines.
