MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG at the boot 2003


Full speed ahead with MAN marine engines



As with all diesel engines from MAN for vehicles and stationary op-
erations, the marine engines naturally too benefit from ongoing
technical development. The emphasis here is on economy and envi-
ronmental compatibility.


MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG's range of high-speed marine diesel en-
gines spans from 190 kW (258 hp) to 1103 kW (1500 hp). They are
fitted in exclusive yachts, passenger and industrial ships or tugs and
patrol boats.


Engines for every purpose
The characteristics of the 6-cylinder in-line engines with ratings be-
tween 190 kW (258 hp), 331 kW (450 hp) and 515 kW (700 hp) are
outstanding efficiency, good quiet running and low consumption.
These properties highlight the environmental friendliness of MAN
engines.


Compact form and quiet running are also prominent features of the
8, 10 and 12 cylinder V engines. Their power ratings start at 280 hp
(380 hp) and end at 1103 kW (1500 hp). Direct high-pressure injec-
tion through multi-hole nozzles and boost pressure control result in
improved acceleration and cleaner exhaust gases.

The compact six-cylinder with 450 hp
The new D 0836 engine with 331 kW (450 hp) at 2600 rpm weighs a
mere 730 kg (power to weight ratio 2.2 kg/kW or 1.62 kg/hp). Two
characteristic features of the compact construction are the space-
saving intercooler add-on and the coolant expansion tank with its
integrated engine cooling system onto which an optional gearbox oil
cooler can be installed. The water-cooled exhaust system is insu-
lated from inside, whereby both thermal efficiency and acceleration
are improved. The exhaust emissions meet the IMO guideline. Safe
operation of the engine is guaranteed by EDC control and its inte-
gration into the electronic MAN engine diagnosis and monitoring
system MMDS.


More power with 700 hp
The further development of the 515 kW (700 hp) inline six-cylinder
engine from the D28 range made for greater acceleration and more
running cultured. Quieter and low-vibration operation as well as an
excellent build-up of power in the lower rpm range are the benefits
which the change-over to 4-valve technology with the injection noz-
zle in the centre of the combustion chamber have brought with it. On
this engine too, the internally exhaust-gas system has optimised the
acceleration. Thanks to its compact dimensions of 882 mm width,
1080 mm length and 665 mm between the upper edge of the engine
and the centre of the crankshaft, the engine is suited to all common
ship models. The exhaust emissions naturally correspond to the
guidelines of the IMO. The engine is monitored by the electronic
MAN engine diagnosis and monitoring system MMDS.


A real power pack with 1500 hp
MAN Nutzfahrzeuge AG's most powerful marine engine with 1003
kW (1500 hp) celebrated its world premiere last year at the boot
2002. It creates its impressive performance from a displacement
range of 21,93 litres. The engine has four-valve technology for im-
proved gas exchange, and thanks to the charge-air controlled two-

level turbocharging it builds up a high boost pressure and a consid-
erable torque even at low rpms. The electronic control of the injec-
tion makes for stable idling, smoke-free start-ups and acceleration
as well as reliable engine protection. The EDC control is likewise
integrated into the MAN electronic engine diagnosis and monitoring
system MMDS.


Safety on board
The MAN engine diagnosis and monitoring system MMDS collates
important data such as rpm, oil pressure, boost pressure and
charge-air temperature as well as the level and temperature of the
coolant. If a condition is reached which is critical for the engine, an
alarm is sounded in the engine room, at the controls and, optionally,
on the flybridge. At the same time, the engine's power output is re-
duced by 25% for safety's sake. Alarm messages stored in the diag-
nostic unit can be read out by laptop making for an efficient engine
diagnosis.
