MAN Energy Solutions has received a contract from Luxembourg-based shipping group CLdN to deliver ME-GI engines for two new roll-on/roll-off (RoRo) vessels.

Under the contract, the company will supply four dual-fuel MAN B&W 6S60ME-GI engines for two hybrid, 8,000 lane-metre vessels.

The 234m RoRo vessels are expected to be delivered in the first half of 2025.

CLdN shipping COO Gary Walker said: “By investing in technologically advanced ships and terminals, we enable our customers to improve their carbon footprint and support them at the same time in making their supply chains more efficient and robust.”

The new vessels will feature a hybrid propulsion system, with two ME-GI engines (2 × 11MW) each.

CLdN’s vessels will also be equipped with MAN Energy Solutions’ exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) emissions system.

Both ships will use 2 × 6MW electric propulsion motors to sustain a service speed between 16 knots and 17 knots in full-electric mode. The vessels will also be installed with 2 × 678kWh batteries.

Each vessel will feature shore connection to avoid emissions during in and out of port manoeuvering, thereby helping to maintain zero emissions in ports.

The engines will also include power take-off drives (PTO).

Furthermore, the shafts of the vessels will come fitted with a clutch ready to offer power take home (PTH) of 6MW.

MAN Energy Solutions promotion and customer support head Thomas Hansen said: “ME-GI engines offer the industry’s lowest CO₂ and methane-slip emissions for liquefied natural gas (LNG)-fuelled vessels.”

Last March, MAN Energy won a contract to supply MAN B&W 7G80ME-GI (Gas Injection) Mk9.5 dual-fuel engines to ten very large crude carriers (VLCCs) owned by Advantage Tankers, AET and International Seaways.
