2022: So far In Venture Capital

Global investment in 2022 has been majorly dominated by North America, Europe, and Asia Pacific, whereas the Middle East, and South and Central America have recorded low investments comparatively. In light of this, Europe and North America have been identified as the major destinations for Private Equity and Venture Capital (PE/VC) investments.   GlobalData’s whitepaper analyzes which sectors PE/VC firms have been investing in, looking at Technology, Media, and Telecom, with these sectors recording $356 billion and a deal volume of over 10,000 deals in 2022. Healthcare, Financial Services, Business & Consumer Services, and Construction sectors have also seen high investment activity by PE/VC firms, recording a deal value of over $70 billion each.   But what can this mean for you?   Understand how the Deals Database on GlobalData Explorer can be leveraged to:

  • Identify the top investors already active in any sector-Geography combinations

CSSC-MES Diesel (CMD) has signed an agreement with MAN Diesel & Turbo to build the first Chinese-built MAN B&W design Green Series 7G80ME-C9.2 engine.

Scheduled to be delivered in June next year, the CMD-MAN 7G80ME-C9.2 engine will have improved energy efficiency feature and meet all Tier II criteria.

The G-series engine will be equipped on a 319,000 dwt, ABS class very large crude carrier (VLCC) to be built for Maran Tankers of Greece by Shanghai Waigaoqiao Shipbuilding (SWS).

CMD chairman Qin Wenquan said that the 7G80ME-C9.2 engine – rated at 31,150KW – is a new, green, marine diesel engine with an ultra-long-stroke and lower speed that follow the design principles of the Mark 9 engine series.

"The G-type engine is a realisation of the most advanced technology, offering advantages in fuel consumption, exhaust emission and energy efficiency," Wenquan said.

CMD said that a G80 engine equipped on a 319,000-dwt VLCC could offer 1% greater efficiency compared to an MAN B&W 7S80ME-C9.2 engine.

According to the company, propeller efficiency can be improved by about 3.6% if the engine is run in optimum conditions including an optimum propeller set-up, while it will also reduce overall running costs by 4.6%.

MAN Diesel & Turbo managing director Goetz Kassing said the G80’s longer stroke results in a lower rpm for the engine driving the propeller: a reduction from 78 rpm for the S80 engine to 68 rpm for the G80.

"The lower optimum engine speed allows the use of a larger propeller," Kassing said.

MAN Diesel & Turbo had introduced the G-type programme into the market in October 2010 with the launch of G80ME-C9 model and later expanded the programme in May last year by adding G70ME-C9, G60ME-C9 and G50ME-B9 models.

The company said that the G-types have designs that follow the principles of the large-bore, Mark 9 engine series that it had introduced in 2006, while its longer stroke reduces engine speed.

CMD is a joint venture between Chinese CSSC and CSSC Holdings and Japanese ship builder Mitsui.
