MAN Energy Solutions has announced that Oslo-listed BW LPG, the first shipowner to place retrofit orders for the MAN B&W ME-LGIP LPG-powered engine, has now exercised an option in the initial contract and ordered a further four retrofits. The initial contract covered the world’s first retrofitting of four MAN B&W 6G60ME-C9.2 HFO-burning engines to 6G60ME-C9.5-LGIP LPG-propelled dual-fuel engines. BW LPG has ordered the extra retrofits on the back of a successful TAT (Type Approval Test) for the first ME-LGIP (Liquid Gas Injection Propane) retrofit engine, performed recently at the works of MAN Energy Solutions’ two-stroke licensee, STX HI, in Korea.

The original deal was signed in advance of the official launch of the MAN B&W ME-LGIP engine in Copenhagen in September 2018 with the contract exchanged publicly during the event.

BW LPG is the world's leading owner and operator of LPG vessels and currently owns and operates 51 Very Large Gas Carriers and Large Gas Carriers including two VLGC newbuildings with a total carrying capacity of 4,159,213 CBM.
