MTU 16V diesel

Mon­ster en­gine re­vealed

Motorboat & Yachting - - Newtech -

Got a big boat? No, I mean a re­ally big boat. This lat­est en­gine from Ger­man man­u­fac­turer MTU weighs in at 42 tonnes and its 278 litres pro­duce 670hp from each of its 16 cylin­ders for a to­tal of just over 10,000hp. But what’s most in­cred­i­ble, once you’ve di­gested those stats, is learn­ing that this is a new com­pact ver­sion of the ex­ist­ing 20-cylin­der MTU 8,000! They don’t mess about, the Ger­mans. It’s de­signed for naval craft, though they do of­fer it for (very) large pri­vate yachts. Com­mon rail fuel in­jec­tion al­lied to elec­tronic en­gine con­trol en­sure emis­sions low enough to meet IMO Tier 2 and EPA Tier 2 reg­u­la­tions.
