The paper presents some detailed developments in the RND range of Sulzer slow speed diesel engines and, in his introduction, the author points out the main differences between the RND engine and the RD engine which it has superseded. He then goes on to discuss various features of the RND engine under the headings of combustion chamber design, cooling water treatment, cooling water system design and top end bearings. Future increase in power output from these engines is discussed from the point of view of increased B.M.E.P., while controls and instrumentation are considered by way of a new system, adapted particularly to present day requirements and currently in the final stages of development and testing. The operation of RND engines on crude oil and dual-fuel engines come next under consideration, and the author concludes with a section on machinery installation.
