MAN Diesel & Turbo signed a framework agreement with China Classification Society (CCS), aiming to strengthen cooperation in the fields of ship design, ship-type research & development, ship power, ship automation, environmental protection, intelligent ship and battery solutions.
Jeffrey Ang, Vice President, Head of Engine and Marine Systems Asia Pacific – MAN Diesel & Turbo, and Sun Feng – Vice President – CCS, signed the agreement on behalf of their respective companies, on the sidelines of Marintec China 2017.
“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,” said Mr. Ang.
The agreement is a renewal agreement under the Framework Agreement for Technical Cooperation signed by both parties back in 2013. MAN Diesel & Turbo and CCS have since strengthened their cooperation within the above-mentioned fields.
In April 2015, CCS awarded MAN Diesel & Turbo’s entire four-stroke engine portfolio the world’s first SCR IMO Tier III Approval in Principle.
