MAN B&W INTRODUCES NEW BIG-BORE, TWO-STROKE DIESEL

The new K98MC-C model introduced by MAN B&W Diesel A/S marks a return to the 980mm bore class engine. A new market for this class of engine comes from the higher power requirements of faster container ships. The engine has a mean effective pressure of 18.2 bar and a mean piston speed of 8.32 m/sec. A propeller speed requirement of 104 r/min was selected as the design basis, resulting in a stroke/bore ratio of 2.45 and a cylinder output of 5710 kW. The K98MC engine will be available in nine-, 10-, 11- and 12-cylinder versions, yielding an output of up to 68 520 kW at 104 r/min.
