Auxiliary MAN 21/31DF-M items make market début to ensure that Pure Automotive and Truck Carriers powered by MAN B&W ME-LGIM prime movers; section trending towards methanol as future sustainable gas
China Retailers Heavy Trade (CMHI) has ordered six small-bore, seven-cylinder 21/31DF-M, methanol-burning GenSets in reference to the development of two × 9,300 ceu (automotive equal items) PCTCs for China Retailers Power Delivery (CMES). The enterprise represents the very first order for the brand new methanol-powered, MAN four-stroke GenSet. MAN Power Options’ licensee, CMP, will construct the engines in China with first supply due in Q1, 2025.
The three × 7L21/31DF-M GenSets aboard every of the 2 vessels will accompany an MAN B&W 7S60ME-LGIM (-Liquid Fuel Injection Methanol) predominant engine beforehand ordered by CMHI in Could 2023. Vessel supply is about respectively for 2025 and 2026, and the contract consists of an choice for an additional 4 vessels.
Bjarne Foldager, Head of Two-Stroke Enterprise, MAN Power Options, mentioned: “The vehicle-transport sector’s curiosity in utilizing methanol is at an all-time excessive pushed by the necessity for expanded capability – on account of strong Chinese language car-sales – and emission laws.

Foldager added: “As completely happy as we had been to initially win the principle engines for this thrilling venture, we’re much more glad so as to add these methanol-driven GenSets – their first such sale and one which inserts with our goal to more and more grow to be a provider of full decarbonisation options.”
The 21/31DF-M is predicated on a easy port fuel-injection idea that optimises reliability, whereas concurrently minimising capital-outlay time. The inspiration for the brand new L21/31DF-M GenSet is the prevailing L21/31 GenSet, which has amassed greater than 55 million working hours with 1000’s of engines in service. Moreover, the L21/31DF-M energy vary spans 1,000–1,980 kW, which makes it appropriate for many service provider vessels.
Thomas S. Hansen, Head of Promotion and Buyer Help, MAN Power Options, mentioned: “The delivery trade is exhibiting an growing curiosity in decarbonisation by working vessels on inexperienced methanol, which has spurred us to broaden our well-proven, dual-fuel GenSet portfolio with this small-bore L21/31DF-M engine.
The brand new GenSet advantages from the excessive reliability, excessive efficiency and gas flexibility of the 21/31 engine platform, whereas the likelihood to function on inexperienced methanol as a drop-in gas will increase its fuel-flexibility. On the similar time, it will increase methanol’s potential as an choice for GenSet energy era aboard giant marine service provider vessels.”
