DEVELOPMENT OF A HIGH POWERED MEDIUM-SPEED ENGINE WITH SPECIAL EMPHASIS ON RELIABILITY MONITORING

The design and development of the Wartsila VASA 46 medium-speed diesel engine revolved around these three technological concepts: 1) an effective engine monitoring system; 2) an engine designed with a CAD program; and 3) minimum engine vibration with maximum engine reliability. These concepts were successfully implemented in the first production VASA 46 engine delivered and installed in July 1988. This paper sums up results of the field experience data taken from the new engine and confirms the usefulness of the design considerations in enhancing engine reliability.
