JHW has ordered five of the largest ever ethane carriers at Dalian Shipbuilding Industry Offshore (DSIC) in China, each powered by an MAN B&W dual-fuel engine.

Nakilat-Keppel Offshore & Marine (NKOM) has carried out the first  conversion of a vessel from heavy fuel oil (HFO) to ME-GI gas-burning operation on a Nakilat-owned Q-MAX LNG carrier.

Florida-based Container-RoRo operator Crowley Maritime Corporation has placed an order for several MAN B&W dual-fuel engines, to be installed in two new ConRo vessels.

MAN has received an order for its most powerful dual-fuel engines ever, to power two new Jones-Act boxships for Matson Navigation Company.

"There is no doubt that the order backlog is melting out and evaporating," was the grim opening line from Ole Groene, svp at MAN Diesel and Turbo, given against a backdrop of charts showing deliveries of low speed engines and ships, both peaking between 2010 and 2012, before trailing off up to today and into the future forecasts.
