MAN Diesel & Turbo will supply four 9L48/60CR engines for the propulsion system of two passenger ferries to the Chinese shipping companies, Huadong Ferry and Dadong Ferry. The two ferries are being built at Huanghai Shipyard in Shangdong, China.

"We are pleased that our MAN propulsion packages will contribute to a safe and environmentally friendly ferry service in the East Asian region," says Henning Bullwinkel, sales manager at MAN Diesel & Turbo's business unit Marine Medium Speed.

Both ships will get a passenger capacity of 1,500 and will connect South Korea with China. MAN Diesel & Turbo will supply complete propulsion system for the ferries that for each ferry will consist of two of the above engines and two five bladed MAN Alpha CP propeller. The propulsion control system is MAN's Alphatronic 3000.

The Chinese Shipowners Association has proposed to restrict the age of the vessels in service to 28 years. The two new ferries will be credited to the ferry services from autumn 2016, replacing ships that would otherwise reach the new proposed age limit. In the near future, it is expected that more and more ships are to be scrapped. There is a huge market potential in the East Asian market with regard to supplying propulsion several new buildings.
