Tognum subsidiary MTU Friedrichshafen will be presenting its range of products for commercial marine applications at the Europort Maritime Exhibition in Rotterdam (Hall 1, Stand 1425). In its role as a systems partner, MTU supplies complete propulsion packages incorporating MTU engines as well as partial systems such as couplings, gearboxes, on-board power gensets and integrated ship automation systems. The company´s portfolio is rounded off by a program of customer-specific service solutions.

Among other things, the MTU stand will have a 16-cylinder Series 4000 `Ironmen´ workboat engine on display. Available as 8, 12 and 16-cylinder units, Ironmen engines cover the power range from 746 kW to 2,240 kW. As a rule, they are used wherever there is a need for particular reliability coupled with long service life, high availability and low operating costs - such as in the tugboat and inland waterways sector. MTU also supplies diesel gensets producing between 760 kW and 3,015 kW for diesel-electric propulsion on offshore supply vessels and for on-board power.

At Europort, MTU will also be showcasing its Series 2000 engines for commercial shipping. Available as 8, 10, 12 and 16-cylinder units, these engines output between 400 kW and 1,630 kW. As well as offering a very high power-to-weight ratio, these engines are particularly reliable, service-friendly and compact  -  all vital features which enable inland waterways vessels and high-speed wind-farm tenders to operate efficiently and to save on fuel.
