MAN Power for Svitzer Ice-Breaking Tugs

Posted by Michelle Howard

MAN Energy Solutions won the contract to supply the main propulsion engines for two new ice-breaking ASD tugs, to be operated by Svitzer in the Scandanavian region.

Each vessel, rated with 60 tonnes of bollard pull, will be powered by 2 × MAN 12V175D MM, IMO Tier II engines, each rated at 2,040 kWm at 1,800 rpm. All four engines will be supplied by MAN Energy Solutions directly from its production facility in Frederikshavn, Denmark to Turkish-based, Med Marine. The vessels are due to enter service by the end-2020.

MAN Energy Solutions reports that - initially - the installed engines will be designated with an IMO Marpol Tier II NOx emissions compliance certificate. However, both vessels' engine rooms will be designed in such a way that additional MAN-supplied Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) equipment can be installed at a later date, thus raising the vessels compliance to IMO Tier III emissions standard. Key factors that enable this are the compact and modular construction of the MAN Energy Solutions' SCR components, as well as the MAN175D engine hardware requiring no subsequent modification, making retro-upgrading easily achievable.
