GEAR | MAN propulsion packages selected for Israeli-built patrol vessels

MAN Energy Solutions has won the contract to supply complete propulsion packages to two offshore patrol vessels (OPVs) in a series currently under construction at Israel Shipyards in Haifa.

The contract covers two identical shipsets, each featuring two MAN 16V175D-MM 2,960kW engines and gearboxes, as well as Alpha fixed-pitch propellers with struts and Alphatronic 3000 propulsion control systems.

Once completed, the OPVs will each have an LOA of 45.7 metres and a displacement of approximately 300 tonnes. The MAN 175D engines will deliver a sustained speed of above 24 knots and a range of over 3,500 nautical miles.
