The Korean government has placed an order with Tognum subsidiary MTU Friedrichshafen for 44 large-scale engines to be delivered between July and September 2008 for 11 of its coastguard craft. The engines concerned are 22 Series 4000 units offering 2,750 kW (3,740 bhp) of power output and 22 Series 1163 engines with power ratings up to 7,400 kW (10,060 bhp).
