    MAN reveals 45/60CR marine diesel engine

    MAN has revealed the successor to its 48/60CR engine in the company’s 4x line of high-performance diesel engines, the company said in its press release. The MAN 45/60CR marine diesel engine will initially be available as 12V and 14V versions that boast power outputs, of 15,600 and 18,200 kW respectively, with inline versions following at a later stage. For land-based power generation applications, MAN has developed the maximum power version, the 20V45/60 with 26 MW.

    Wayne Jones, Chief Sales Officer of MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: “The new engine combines the best features of the current 48/60CR, such as MAN’s common-rail system with ECOMAP capability, and adds new technologies such as two-stage turbocharging for an unrivaled Specific Fuel Oil Consumption. The resultant reduction in operating expenses and positive environmental impact are sure to attract strong market interest.”

    MAN Diesel & Turbo states that the 45/60CR’s power increase and low consumption are particularly aimed at such key, lifecycle-cost-oriented applications as cruise liners, RoPax ferries, RoRo vessels, and dredgers. The company is making the 45/60CR engine available first as 12V and 14V versions with 6L to 10L variants to follow later. It reports that the engine has been conceived from the beginning as a family concept that will accommodate future derivatives, for example, such as a dual-fuel derivative.

    The first set of V-type engines will be available from end-2020 with delivery of the first L-type engines due from 2022.
