MAN Unveils High Speed Engine
D7 diesel targets broad range of marine, power gen and rail applications
MAN Diesel & Turbo has announced a significant addition to its engine program with the launch of a new high-speed engine designed to close the gap between its smallest medium-speed and largest high-speed engines, the company said.
The D7 high-speed engine will be available in ratings from 1.5 to 5 MW at speeds of 1000 to 2000 r/min. It is designed to serve a broad range of applications including tugboats, workboats, offshore service and supply vessels, navy patrol boats, super yachts and fast ferries as core applications.
MAN said the new engine will also target non-marine markets such as the offshore, onshore power generation and rail segments. It will also be available as a gas-powered version for certain applications.
In addition, the D7 is the centerpiece of a new marine powertrain being developed by the company. The engine will be part of a package that includes gearboxes, propellers, switchboards, auxiliary gen-sets and energy storage solutions. Orders for the new engine can be placed from 2014 on, the company said.
