105 MW for New Ro-Ro Vessels


The American shipping company Totem Ocean Trailer Express (TOTE), in Tacoma/Washington, has selected MAN B&W four-stroke engines for their two new Roll-on/Roll-off vessels. For the diesel electric propulsion plant, each vessel will be equipped with six MAN B&W Diesel engines consisting of four MAN B&W 9L58/64 engines of 11,700 kW each, and two 9L27/38 engines with 2,700 kW each, for a total output of 52,200 kW.

The vessels will be built at the National Steel and Shipbuilding Company (NASSCO), in San Diego/California, and are scheduled for delivery in 2002. They will be operating between Alaska and Washington, where high speed capability combined with the capability to operate under harsh environmental conditions is mandatory. The engines will be resiliently mounted and are designed to withstand extreme roll requirements as part of their normal operating scenario.Both NASSCO and TOTE have striven to make these vessels achieve the highest levels of environmental friendliness possible, which is one of the reasons the MAN B&W engines were specified. The engines meet all of the requirements for soot and exhaust gas emissions currently in effect.
