PROSPECTS OF MODIFIED LAY-OUT OF SLOW-SPEED DIESEL ENGINES

Ways of improving service economy of direct-coupled slow-speed Diesel engines are discussed. Based upon accumulated testbed results and performance calculations the flexibility and derating prospects for the uniflow-scavenged, impulse turbocharged slow-speed engine are explained leading to a brief presentation of the main features of the recently-introduced long-stroke versions of the Burmeister & Wain K--GF series.
