Thursday, July 06, 2006
The RK 280, previously developed and sold through the U.K. branch of MAN B&W Diesel, will be transferred to the headquarters in Augsburg and newly launched as an MAN 28/33D engine. The commercial responsibility will shift from the U.K. to the Medium Speed Marine division, headed by Prof. Dr. Wolfram Lausch as of July 1. The engine will be fully implemented into the medium-speed production and quality control systems. All technical and support functions will be managed out of the headquarters in Augsburg. The 28/33D engine is sold in a 12V, 16V and 20V configuration. It runs on MDO and is rated 450 kW per cylinder. The first engines have been put into service during this year. Initial applications are main propulsion for fast ships. Depending on the market demand further applications like marine, offshore or stationary generating sets will be offered.
