M 32 Salts Drive KnppMaK

With propulsion engines from Kiel, the Danish shipyard Aarhus Flydedok A/S has equipped seven new 3,700-dwt reefer vessels. Krupp MaK Maschinenbau GmbH received a $14,465,499 million order for seven heavy fuel diesel engines of the new type 8 M 32, each with an output of 3,500 kW per vessel. The engines are scheduled to be delivered in mid-1996. Under the Russian flag, the vessels will be used predominantly for transporting fishing products between Russia, the Far East and the U.S.

The M 32 high-value integral engine frame reportedly directs the firing and mass forces from the cylinder head to the main bearings, allowing the bearings to match the flux of the lines of force. A feature of the M 32 is the pulse charging system which reportedly creates a pressure difference even at part-load.

The M 32 can reportedly be used for drive tasks such as ship propulsion and generator or pump drives. The V-engines of the M 32 series have been specially designed for use in stationary power plants.
