Wärtsilä and Mitsubishi debut smaller low-speed marine engines

Tokyo: Wärtsilä has introduced two new low-speed marine diesel engines at the Wärtsilä Licensees Conference held this week in Lucerne, Switzerland. The engines were developed in co-operation with Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd under the strategic alliance between Wärtsilä and Mitsubishi agreed in September 2005.
The power range of the new engines is 3500-9000 kW. They have cylinder bores of 350 and 400 mm, and each is available as Wärtsilä RT-flex electronically-controlled common-rail engines and Wärtsilä RTA mechanically-controlled engines. Based on the RTA engine designs, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Ltd will develop UEC-LSE series engines.  [9/9/08]
