Navigating valuable cargo through tough waters
As some of the largest
vessels sailing the seas today, tankers experience extremely harsh conditions while
transporting a wide range of goods around the world. But those aren’t the only
challenges these massive ships face.

Efficient, versatile solutions are key for modern tankers
Tankers are designed to transport specific types of cargo and therefore meet special requirements
Tankers vary in size from small, local coastal tankers to ULCC (ultra large crude carriers), which are among the largest ships in the oceans today. They are designed for the specific needs of their freight and transport route with draft usually limited by the depth of the harbor or straights along the preferred shipping route. These workhorses need to perform in the toughest conditions, delivering their valuable cargo safely without spills or accidents. Tankers frequently sail in environmentally sensitive areas subject to strict NOx, SOx, and particulate emission requirements. They need durable yet efficient engines and propulsion systems to keep them sailing strong while staying within these limits.
MAN B&W two-stroke engines: The perfect fit for your tanker
Our solutions for modern cargo vessels
Our engines are manufactured by a family of licensees, mainly based in Asia, and serve a variety of marine applications and segments. Two-stroke engines are the reliable and preferred choice for the propulsion of ocean-going merchant vessels, such as your tanker.
Our electronically controlled ME engines offer countless advantages such as optimized fuel and lube oil consumption, as well as improved low-load operation – based on the many decades of success enjoyed by their mechanically controlled predecessors.
Powerful, strong and reliable: MAN B&W two-stroke engines for your tanker
With the introduction of the ME-GI gas injection engine, we have begun a new chapter in diesel history, from which your merchant ship in particular will benefit. ME-GI – a highly efficient, flexible propulsion solution – offers ship owners the option of using fuel oil or gas, depending on price and availability, which therefore makes it the optimal choice for tankers or merchant fleets.
In addition to the ME-GI gas injection engine, our ME-LGI engine with liquid gas injection is a popular choice for modern cargo vessels: The ME-LGI is impressive because it can be operated with fuels with a low flash point and low sulfur content, such as LPG and methanol.
