Caterpillar Marine Power Systems announce the development of the MaK M 32 E, a new high performance marine diesel engine platform for the commercial marine industry based on the M 32 C engine series. The M 32 E engine boasts an increased power rating of 550 kW per cylinder @ 720 and 750 rpm and with total output ranging from 3,300 kW for the six cylinder configuration to 4,950 kW for the nine cylinder configuration. First engine deliveries are foreseen for fall 2014.

Offering both 720 and 750 rpm and the higher power output ideal for the offshore market in diesel electric and auxiliary applications with multi-engine concepts, the M 32 E is the first MaK “5 Mega Watt” power solution in the 320 mm bore segment. Additionally, the M 32 E is an ideal platform to drive variable speed diesel-electric systems and can be perfectly integrated with the proven Cat high speed engines in mixed engine rooms.

The engine features a stroke of 460 mm and utilizes the piston and other proven components from the VM 32 C and the same footprint as the M 32 C. In addition to having Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) capability, the new M 32 E features the same lube oil consumption and maintenance intervals as the M 32 C product series. The engine is EPA Tier 2 and IMO II compliant.

The M 32 E with its high power output will fit perfectly in the comprehensive Caterpillar product line between the efficient M 32 C and the fuel flexible M 34 DF. Caterpillar will offer its renowned service and support for the new MaK engine, including installation and application, system integration support, as well as customer and crew training. The M 32 E will be pass customer acceptance tests and classification approvals in Kiel, Germany and will be sold through Caterpillar’s MaK dealer network.
