MHI-MME Completes Onboard Operation of
MET Turbochargers for the World's First Dual-Fuel Methanol Main Engine for Large Containership


Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment Co, Ltd. (MHI-MME) delivered MET turbochargers for the world's first dual-fuel methanol main engine (MAN ES 8G95ME-C10.5-LGIM) for large containership and verified that the turbochargers satisfied the required performance by attending the onboard operation.
This main engine is equipped with a MET90MB, the largest turbocharger in the world, and a MET60MBII.

The adoption of the large MET90MB has made it possible to reduce the number of installed turbochargers from three to two, achieving both high efficiency and reduced maintenance costs.

The vessel is the first in a series of 12 containerships with a capacity of 16,000 units being built by A.P. Moller Maersk and powered by a dual-fuel methanol main engine.

Starting with this project, orders for vessels equipped with dualfuel methanol main engines have been increasing, and orders for MET turbochargers have also been received.

MHI-MME will continue its efforts as a turbocharger manufacturer to provide our customers with optimal, environmentally friendly solutions.
