MAN to Spotlight New High-Speed Engine at SMM
The MAN 175D marine diesel engine will be shown at the SMM for the first time and it can also be experienced in augmented reality as well with a new iPad app by MAN Diesel & Turbo which enables engine details and optional equipment to be viewed in a 3-dimensional animation.
The 12-cylinder version of the MAN 175D being presented in Hamburg is tailor made to meet the needs of commercial shipping and is ideal for propelling ferries, offshore supply vessels, tug boats and working vessels.
Further specialist model versions will serve the super-yacht and navy ship markets. "With the MAN 175D, we expand and complete the marine engine programs by MAN Diesel & Turbo and MAN Truck & Bus”, says Dr. Hans-Otto Jeske, Chief Technology Officer and acting CEO at MAN Diesel & Turbo. The new engine will be offered with an output spectrum from 1,500 to 2,200 Kilowatts and will be delivered to pilot customers in 2015.
Booth Exhibits Demonstrate High to Low Speed Performance Range
The company's trade fair stand, measuring just under 450 m2, demonstrates in an impressive visual manner the high to low speed performance range covered by the marine engine portfolio: alongside the MAN 175D are the 20V28/33D engine, which is almost twice the size at around four meters in height, and the new MAN high speed D2862 LE441 engine.
The D2862 LE441 marine engine offers improved output and a dry weight of 2,270 kg, delivering an excellent performance density for applications in heavy operations such as tug boats and freighters. Strong performance and reliability are two of the characteristics of the 10,000 Kilowatts 20V28/33D STC engine which is suitable for use on ferries and mega-yachts as well as navy ships.
MAN Diesel & Turbo adds that with 60 installed units and another 30 in the order books, the 28/33D is one of the established engines on the maritime four stroke market, and has been part of MAN Diesel & Turbo's success story for many years.
