MAN Diesel & Turbo marked the sale of its 60,000th turbocharger after 80 years of turbocharger business, during the Marintec 2015 marine trade fair in Shanghai, by making a presentation to turbocharger customer, China Merchants Energy Shipping Co. Ltd. (CMES). The milestone has been reached with the (coming) delivery of 2 × TCA66-21 turbochargers, bound for an MAN Diesel & Turbo MAN B&W 7G80ME-C9 two-stroke engine powering a VLCC.

 
The ceremony took place at the MAN stand at the trade fair where MAN Diesel & Turbo’s CEO, Dr. Uwe Lauber, presented representatives from CMES with tokens of the company’s appreciation.
 
Lauber said, “Over the last two decades, the level of shipbuilding activity in China has increased dramatically and China is of vital strategic importance for our Turbocharger Business. MAN Diesel & Turbo is one of the leading turbocharger suppliers for marine diesel-engine manufacturers in China and, with our localization strategy in the shape of our facility in Changzhou, we are able to support our European production, shorten delivery times and cut transportation costs for the benefit of our Chinese customers.”
 
CMES President Capt. Xie Chunlin, accepted a commemorative certificate and ornamental turbocharger turbine-blade on behalf of his company. Also present during the ceremony were representatives from Hoi Tung Marine Suppliers, MAN Turbocharger business partners in the Chinese market and representatives from CSSC-MES Diesel Co., Ltd.
 
Earlier this year, Associated Maritime Co. (Hong Kong) Ltd. (AMCL), the management company of China Merchants Energy Shipping Co., Ltd. also took the opportunity to sign a premium maintenance contract with MAN Diesel & Turbo covering the service of 36 MAN turbochargers with effect from the start of 2016.
