NEW WARTSILA 26 INCORPORATES ALL EXPERTISE OF THE GROUP

Stork-Wartsila Diesel, the Dutch associate of Finland's Wartsila Diesel group, launched the Stork-Wartsila 26 engine in September. This is a 260mm bore heavy-duty medium/high-speed design running at speeds of 900rev/min and 1000rev/min and offering an overall output range between 1450kW and 5860kW. Apart from the expected standard claims of high reliability, low fuel consumption, and easy installation, the Wartsila 26 is notable for an extensive range of marine applications. It is also claimed to be the lowest and shortest in its class, through the development of an advanced crankshaft design which reduces distances between cylinders, and short connecting rods.
