MAN Energy is supplying ME-GI engines for CLdN’s new RoRo ships

MAN Energy Solutions has receive an order from the Luxembourg-based shipping group CLdN to supply ME-GI engines for two new roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels.

Under the contract, the company will supply four dual-fuel MAN B&W 6S60ME-GI engines for two 8,000 meter hybrid vessels.

The 234 m long RoRo ships are expected to be delivered in the first half of 2025.

Gary Walker, COO of CLdN Shipping, said: “By investing in technologically advanced vessels and terminals, we enable our customers to reduce their carbon footprint while helping them make their supply chains more efficient and resilient.”

The new ships will have a hybrid propulsion system, each with two ME-GI engines (2 × 11 MW).

CLdN’s ships will also be equipped with MAN Energy Solutions’ exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) system.

Both vessels will use 2 × 6 MW electric propulsion motors to maintain an operating speed of between 16 knots and 17 knots in all-electric mode. The ships will also be fitted with 2 × 678 kWh batteries.

Each ship will have a shore connection to avoid emissions when maneuvering in and out of port, helping ports remain zero-emissions.

The engines will also include power take-offs (PTO).

In addition, the ships’ shafts will be equipped with a coupling ready to offer a power input (PTH) of 6 MW.

“ME-GI engines offer the industry’s lowest CO₂ and methane slip emissions for liquefied natural gas (LNG) fueled vessels,” said Thomas Hansen, director of advertising and customer care for MAN Energy Solutions.

Last March, MAN Energy received an order to supply MAN B&W 7G80ME-GI (Gas Injection) Mk9.5 dual-fuel engines to ten Very Large Crude Carriers (VLCCs) from Advantage Tankers, AET and International Seaways.
