Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding Company have developed a new, four-stroke, medium-speed Diesel engine designated L/V 42 M as a main propulsion plant for marine applications. The main features of the engine, which has a cylinder output of 750 bhp are; strong and sturdy frame structure; easy maintenance; and simplified lubricating oil and cooling water lines. In this paper, the structural characteristics which have realized these aims are described, and the results of bench tests are presented and discussed. The paper concludes with some comments on the various types of reduction gearing which are available for the new engine. Order from BSRA as No. 51,753.
