Hyundai Heavy’s HiMSEN engine production line

Hyundai Heavy Industries (HHI), the world largest shipbuilder and marine engine manufacturer, has produced its 5,000th HiMSEN engine ten years after manufacturing its first unit in 2001.

The HiMSEN (Hi-Touch Medium Speed Engine) engine is used for both the propulsion of ships and power generation for onshore power plants. The engine features light-weight design, high-output and high-efficiency, and was awarded prizes at major exhibitions such as iF Product Design Award in 2009 and Red Dot Design Award in 2010. The annual production of the engines has increased rapidly from 4 units in 2001, 123 units in 2004, to more than 700 units from 2007.

Accounting for 23% of global 2-stroke marine engine market, in March 2010 HHI completed an aggregate 20 million brake horse power (bhp) engine production, the shortest time of any engine builder. Additionally, in September last year Hyundai Heavy achieved an unprecedented aggregate production of 100 million bhp in 2-stroke engines.
