FATHER-AND-SON ENGINE COMBINATIONS FOR OPTIMUM ECONOMY AND MAXIMUM FLEXIBILITY
Combining engines of different sizes to drive a propeller shaft and perhaps adding a generator drive from at least one engine can result in fuel cost savings for an overall power generation system that can help offset higher capital costs. Since the use of low-speed engines for this purpose would normally be impractical, it is the combination of different cylinder numbers in two or more medium- speed diesels that has come to the fore. Several installations of this type are described and illustrated.
