For VLCCs, it is estimated that the application of a 7G80ME-C will prompt an overall efficiency increase of 4-5%, compared with a 7S80ME-C9 or an alternative engine design with the same engine speed.
The first G-type engine, designated G80ME-C, has a design that follows the principles of the large-bore Mk-9 engine series that MAN Diesel & Turbo introduced in 2006. The G-type is designed with a longer stroke to reduce engine speed.
