MAN Diesel recently announced that it concluded an order for the first IMO Tier II version of its new 48/60CR four-stroke engine with common rail fuel injection. The contract is reportedly worth over US$45 million and covers the main propulsion and onboard power supply equipment for two large ROPAX ferries being built by Aker Yards for P&O.

For each ship MAN Diesel will supply four inline, sevencylinder, type 7L48/60CR main engines, each rated 7600 kW at 500 r/min and four gen-sets based on inline, sevencylinder, type 7L 21/31 engines, each rated 1463 kWe at 1000 r/min.
