MAN Diesel & Turbo has chalked up more Chinese success with power orders for four new trailing suction hopper dredgers in the last four months.

Chinese outfits CHECD, Jiangsu Haixin and Huanghua Port Bureau have all chosen MAN medium-speed engines for the newbuilds.

CHEC Dredging Company Ltd (CHECD), a subsidiary of CCCC Shanghai Dredging Company Ltd, chose complete propulsion packages from MAN Diesel & Turbo for its new two new 6,500 m3 TSHDs being built at the Shanghai Zhenhua Heavy Industry Co Ltd (ZPMC) shipyard.

Each vessel will feature one 6L32/44CR and one 9L32/44CR engines with the latest, flexible, common-rail technology. One of the engines will be dedicated to driving a CPP, as well as a mechanical dredge pump.

The engines will be delivered as Selective Catalytic Reduction-ready so they can readily accommodate any retrofit should Tier III operation in the future. Shipment of both shipsets is scheduled for the turn of 2017/18.

In another boost to MAN Diesel & Turbo locally, Jiangsu Haixin Shipping Heavy Ind has once again ordered two MAN 32/40 engines as part of a propulsion package in connection with a repeat order for an 8,000 m3 TSHD, a further sister to an existing series of MAN-powered vessels.

The scope of delivery covers one shipset including a propulsion package consisting of two 9L32/40 engines, an MAN Alpha twin-screw VBS860 CP propeller, single marine reduction RSVL-800 gearboxes from Renk, plus an SCR system that enables the engines to fulfill Tier III. Delivery is scheduled for end-2017.

Lastly, Huanghua Port Bureau has also chosen MAN engines in the form of two 12V32/44CR units to power a 10,000m3 TSHD newbuilding. Both engines will drive a CPP and have a power take-off for a mechanical dredge-pump drive.
