Dalian Maritime University selects MAN B&W technology

Dalian Maritime University selects MAN B&W technology

Dalian: Renowned Chinese institution Dalian Maritime University (DMU) has chosen an MAN B&W  5S35ME-B9 engine for its maritime laboratory. DMU has selected MAN Diesel's cutting-edge, electronic ME-B engine to  strengthen the practical tuition of its student body, thus establishing a fully functional, shore-based engine room at its Dalian campus.  

DMU's maritime science faculty consists of a training dock and over 40 laboratories for teaching, training  and  research, where equipment  already includes a full mission ship-handling simulator and an  engine-room simulator. DMU also owns and operates a  10,000-dwt ocean-going training vessel that is powered by an MAN B&W 7S35MC engine and an MAN Diesel Alpha  CP propeller.

The new engine will be built in Korea by MAN Diesel licensee  STX Engine Co, logistical and capacity issues having meant it could not be sourced within China.

DMU is one of China's largest, maritime universities and is the only key maritime institute that operates under the patronage of the People's Republic of China's Ministry of Communications. It enjoys a glowing reputation internationally as a centre of excellence for maritime  education and training, and has been recognised as such  by the International Maritime Organisation (IMO).  [03/04/09]
