Characterized by compactness and high reliability, the MAN 175D high speed genset design is able to meet and optimize our customer’s requirements. Therefore, it is also ideally applicable for naval ships.
Focusing on the navy and defense market, the MAN 175D genset can be equipped with a double elastic mounting layout in order to fully comply with strict vibration and shock standards. Furthermore, the high performance noise enclosure guarantees a very low acoustic signature and the MAN in-house designed SCR exhaust after-treatment system – being compliant with the latest IMO TIER III emissions regulations – ensures an environmentally friendly footprint.
Meanwhile, the MAN 175D naval genset design has also proved its strength and efficiency. After a successful FAT held in July 2017, witnessed by a delegation from the Italian Navy, MAN Diesel & Turbo SE has delivered four MAN 12V175D naval generating sets to Fincantieri Muggiano Shipyard, where the first of a class of seven Multipurpose Offshore Patrol Vessels (Pattugliatore Polivalente d'Altura - PPA) is currently under construction (Press Release).
This FAT marked a true milestone as, after exceptional operation in commercial marine installations, the MAN 175D is now available as a fully qualified and referenced product for the defense industry. In addition, MAN Diesel & Turbo has already secured the order for more naval gensets with Fincantieri and the Italian Navy.
