MAN B&W ME-GI Engines for Iron Ore Bulkers

New Times Shipbuilding Co Ltd, located in Jiangsu Province in China, has ordered 3 × MAN B&W 6G70ME-GI engines in connection with the construction

New Times Shipbuilding Co Ltd, located in Jiangsu Province in China, has ordered 3 × MAN B&W 6G70ME-GI engines in connection with the construction of 3 × 210,000 dwt bulkcarriers for Eastern Pacific, the Singapore-based shipping company. CSSC-MES Diesel will build the engines in China, while Rio Tinto will charter the vessels upon their entering service. The contract includes an option for three further vessels.

The new order comes shortly after MAN Energy Solutions received an order for 5 × 6G70ME-GI Mk 10.5 dual-fuel engines in October 2020 in connection with the construction of 5 × 210,000-dwt Newcastlemax bulkcarriers, again for EPS, which will subsequently be chartered to Australian mining giant, BHP, for a period of five years.
