MAN Energy Solutions has received an order for 5 × 6G70ME-GI Mk 10.5 dual-fuel engines in connection with the construction of 5 × 210,000-dwt Newcastlemax bulkcarriers for EPS, the Singapore-based shipping company. EPS has sealed an agreement to charter the five LNG dual-fuel Newcastlemaxes to Australian mining giant, BHP, for a period of five years. The vessels are scheduled for delivery during 2022 and will carry iron ore between Western Australia and China.

The Hafnia reference stems from an order Guangzhou Shipyard International Co Ltd placed in September 2020 for 2 × 6G60ME-GI Mk 10.5 dual-fuel engines to power 2 × LR2 tankers for Hafnia, one of the world’s leading, oil-product tanker owners and operators. An option for a further two vessels exists in the contract. French hydrocarbon major, Total, has already agreed to charter the vessels, marking its first encounter with ME-GI engines.

MAN Energy Solutions states that its low-speed, dual-fuel references now exceed 333 units, with the ME-GI recording over 1.5 million operating hours on LNG alone.
