Rolls-Royce launch new medium speed engines

Rolls-Royce have launched a new family of medium speed marine engines.

The launch includes versions of the engine both for diesel and gas. They will also offer a 20 per cent increase in power per cylinder, reduce fuel consumption, emission and through-life operating costs.

 

"We have been developing this engine over the past three years, and part of its future success will be down to the excellent collaboration and sharing of engine technology between our experts in Bergen, Norway and Friedrichshafen, Germany.

 

"Our Bergen engine range is renowned for its robust design and reliability, and this completely new modular engine architecture not only builds and improves on our existing capability, but gives us an engine family that is truly engineered for the future, with numerous configurations and multiple fuel options. It fits perfectly with our vision of providing better power for a changing world."
