SERVICE PROVES MINI-BORE DESIGN

A six-cylinder MAN B&W S26MC main engine (2,180 kw at 250 rev/min) had logged some 6,388 running hours on 180 cSt fuel with a density of up to 997 kg per cu m when it was inspected and overhauled in December of 1989. The results of the inspection are reviewed. They are claimed by the company to confirm the reliability and performance of the mini-bore engine, the world's smallest low-speed, two-stroke design. The company also states that operational feedback regarding installations aboard various ships confirms its claims of the engine's good overall performance, low wear rates and high reliability.
