Type approval test of HiMSEN H46/60V

Hyundai Heavy Industries says that it has been granted type approval for its 35,300bhp HiMSEN H46/60V engine from nine classification societies: ABS, BV, CCS, DNV, GL, KR, LR, NK, and RINA.

The HiMSEN engine (Hi-touch Marine & Stationary Engine) was originally developed by HHI in 2000. Since then, the company has produced some 7,200 units, for both marine propulsion and land-based applications. The engines are available in various configurations of between five and 20 cylinders to suit customer requirements. HHI says that the H46/40V is capable of meeting the forthcoming IMO Tier III emission limits.

Now that the H46/40V has received certification, HHI says that it is able to offer a range of medium speed marine engines covering power ratings from 780bhp to 35,300bhp.

“The rated power of medium speed engines varies depending on ship size and power generation capacity. With the development of the high power HiMSEN H46/60V, Hyundai Heavy is well positioned to swiftly respond to the demand for high power marine engines for ship propulsion and power generation,” said Kim Jong-suk, senior vice president of HHI Engine & Machinery Division.
