The MAN B&W two-stroke engines from MAN Diesel & Turbo have for many years been the primary main engine chosen in bulk carriers, tankers and container vessels of all capacities, including mammoth-sized carriers.
By nature, low speed engines lend themselves to direct coupling of the propeller, ie. without reduction gear. This contributes to the high efficiency, increased reliability and low maintenance cost of the propulsion plant.
Further information on technical aspects of the low speed marine plants is available in the below resources:
Marine Engine Programme
MAN Diesel & Turbo complete Marine Engine Programme - the right solution for every marine application on a "one-stop" basis.
This programme identifies a list of applicable turbochargers for a specific engine layout.
Download installation drawings for low speed engines in DXF and PDF formats.
CEAS - Engine Room Dimensioning
This program calculates basic data essential for the design and dimensioning of a ship's engine room.
Project Guides are intended to provide the information necessary for the layout of a marine propulsion plant.
Extent of Delivery (EOD)
Extent of Delivery is intended to facilitate negotiations between the yard, the engine maker and the final user.
MAN Diesel & Turbo have a long tradition of producing technical papers on engine design and applications for licensees, shipyards and engine operators.
