MDT extends agreement with CCS

Dec 15 2017

At Marintec, MAN Diesel & Turbo (MDT) extended its technical co-operation framework agreement with the China Classification Society (CCS).

This update strengthens the co-operation between the two companies in the areas of ship design, ship-type research & development, ship power, ship automation, environmental protection, intelligent ship and battery solutions.


The original agreement was signed in 2013.


Jeffrey Ang, MDT vice president, head of engine and marine systems Asia/Pacific and Sun Feng CCS vice president, signed the agreement on behalf of their respective companies.


Ang said: “This agreement represents a new start in our collaboration with CCS, one which I am certain will bring us more opportunities and successes. China is one of the most important markets for us already, accounting for more than 12% of our total revenue. And we see great growth opportunities here and want to deepen our partnership with the Chinese economy.”


“CCS and MAN had a very good co-operation in the past years. And we believe the agreement will help us to explore and carry out collaboration within the areas of common advantages”, said Sun Feng at the signing ceremony.



In April, 2015, CCS awarded MDT’s entire 4-stroke engine portfolio the world’s first SCR IMO Tier III Approval in Principle, which represented an important milestone in their collaboration, the engine manufacturer said.
