The effect of application of medium speed diesel engines on the economy of the ship depends very much on the design of the engine, which has a bearing on the service results. Therefore a short description of S.W.D.-engines is given, and service results are dealt with, resulting in reliability figures and maintenance costs. On this basis application examples, provided with feasibility studies, are presented for bulkcarriers and product tankers. A number of offshore applications are mentioned and the economical aspects of steam to M.S. diesel conversion are discussed.
