MAN’s 95-bore LGIM engine ready for Maersk newbuildings
Representatives from MAN Energy Solutions and A.P. Moller – Maersk presented an update on the methanol engines powering recent newbuilding orders at CIMAC 2023, including the new 95-bore developed for larger vessels.
Maersk’s string of methanol-fuelled newbuilding orders has seen the demand for methanol engines skyrocket, and MAN introduced a 95-bore version of its LGIM engine, after the initial 50-bore engine, to cater for the larger vessels being ordered. Maersk has now ordered 19 vessels with the ME-LGIM engines design, the first being a 2,100 TEU container feeder to run on methanol using a G50ME-C9.6-LGIM engine.
