GEAR | MAN 32/40R-DF retrofit successfully passes type approval test


MAN Energy Solutions has successfully concluded the type approval test (TAT) for its dual-fuel retrofit kit for its 32/40 engine type.

The TAT took place with the participation of classification societies DNV GL, ABS, and Lloyd’s Register.

The TAT confirmed the suitability of the retrofit kit for converting the company’s MAN 32/40 engine into a dual-fuel unit – a so-called MAN 32/40R-DF type – that can now run on fossil and renewable, gaseous fuels, in addition to conventional fuel oil.

MAN Energy Solutions confirms that the new retrofit package is already available to order.

The company has received many requests from customers to retrofit their MAN 32/40CD engines to gas/dual-fuel operation. These focus on a financially attractive and very price-competitive solution that is quick to convert and highly fuel-flexible, while maintaining the engine maximum-output.

With the successful TAT, the company has now developed an easy-to-retrofit, reliable and robust conversion kit designed to operate primarily on gas – mainly boil-off gas.

The new retrofit meets IMO Tier I emission limits and has been designed such that engine conversions can be carried out while drydocking or sailing.
