Doosan Engine passes 100 million bhp milestone

MAN Diesel & Turbo’s licensee, Doosan Engine Co., Ltd., held a ceremony in Changwon, Korea on January 20th to celebrate the production of 100 million two-stroke bhp. The milestone was achieved with the successful test operation of an MAN B&W 11G95ME-C (103,000 hp) engine, the world’s most powerful engine. Thomas Knudsen, Head of Low-Speed, led a company delegation to Korea, said, “There have been a lot of major milestones to celebrate at Doosan Engine, and there will undoubtedly be many more. But for now, I would just say congratulations on the 100 million bhp – and we are looking forward to the 100 million kW mark!” Knudsen expects sales in the market to grow as more regions attain a higher level of economic development.
