MAN Energy Solutions has announced the successful conclusion of Factory Acceptance Tests (FAT) tests for its first 95-bore ME-LGIM engine in the first half at HHI-EMD’s facility in Ulsan, South Korea.

The MAN B&W G95ME-LGIM type engine is the world’s largest methanol-powered two-stroke engine. The engine’s manufacture was also a milestone for HHI-EMD, as it became the first engine manufacturer to exceed 200 million brake-horsepower for low-speed, two-stroke engines when the engine was completed in March.

At a ceremony to commemorate the engine production milestone on 22 March,  Bjarne Foldager, Head of Two-Stroke Business, congratulated Hyundai, on behalf of MAN Energy Solutions. In a speech at the event, he referred to the cooperation between the two companies that started in 1974, and noted that Hyundai was the first engine manufacturer to reach the 200 million bhp mark: “It took about 35 years for the first 100 million brake-horsepower, and only 13 years for the next 100 million – an unbelievable achievement!”
