New Sulzer Diesel Ltd of Switzerland has added two new engine types to the Sulzer RTA series of low-speed marine diesel engines. The Sulzer RTA48T and RTA58T engines are specifically designed for the propulsion of bulk carriers and tankers. With cylinder bores of 480 and 580 mm, these engines have maximum continuous outputs of 1850 and 2720 bhp/cylinder (1360 and 2000 kW/cylinder) at 124 and 103 rev/min respectively. Thus, in models with five to eight cylinder, they together cover an overall power range of 5,600-21, 760 bhp (4,100-16,000 kW). Both engines will be able to meet the IMO limits for NOx emissions that come into effect in 1997 without any additional equipment. See also the following two abstracts.
