Tests Begin On Engine Developed By MAN B&W, SEMT Pielstick

A comprehensive trial and test program has begun on a four-stroke, medium-speed V-configuration diesel engine jointly developed by MAN B&W Diesel and S.E.M.T.


The V-version of the 48/60 fourstroke engine was started on the Augsburg test bench of MAN B&W Diesel. This medium-speed engine is a joint development between MAN B&W Diesel and French large-bore diesel engine manufacturer S.E.M.T. Pielstick, in which MAN B&W Diesel and MTU have equal shares of a majority ownership.

The four-stroke engine, with a cylinder bore of 480 mm, piston stroke of 600 mm, cylinder output of 1,326 hp and speed of 450-500 rpm, was developed on the basis of the in-line version of the 48/60 engine.

The newly developed diesel rounds off MAN B&W Diesel's successful large-bore, medium-speed engine family, which includes the L 40/54, L 48/60 and L 58/64, all in-line models.
