Low Speed 2-stroke Diesel Engine: L35MC6・S35MC7
Kawasaki-MAN B & W Low Speed 2-stroke Diesel Engine series produced in cooperation of Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd., one of the major manufacturers of large bore main diesel engines for ocean going vessels as a leading licensee of MAN Diesel, Co., Ltd. and Turbo Co., Ltd., and the Hanshin Diesel Works, Ltd., one of the major manufacturers of main engines for domestic coastal vessels, was developed as the result of the expansion of designing thought of uniflow scavenging constant pressure turbocharging system into the smaller size engine field.
- Low fuel oil consumption
Basing on the advantages of uniflow scavenging constant pressure system, the bore stroke ratio was enlarged up to 3.0～4.0 making it possible to remarkable low fuel oil consumption.
- Low engine speed
If the propeller rpm is reduced by 10%, the propelling efficiency is increased by about 3.3%. The fuel cost will be remarkably lowered due to the synergistic effect of the low fuel oil consumption of the diesel engine itself and the low rpm in the long stroke design.
- Wide range of output
The output of L35MC6 per cylinder is 650kW, and that of S35MC7 is 740kW. They cover wide range of output from 5 to 8-cylinder. Users can select the optimum rating output/rpm in accordance with the type and use of the ship.
- Heavy fuel oil
Due to the uniflow scavenging system, combustion is steady in low load operation of the engine. Because of the fuel valve of unique design, the engine permits the use of heavy fuel oil up to 700cSt/50℃ in the entire load area including the starting and stopping.
