Caterpillar Marine Power Systems is pleased to announce MaK and Cat® power solutions are featured onboard the U.S.N.S. Howard O. Lorenzen, a T-AGM 25 Missile Range Instrumentation ship. The Lorenzen is powered by 4x MaK 12 M 32 C diesel electric propulsion (DEP) engines, delivering 5.5 megawatts of rated power each. The Lorenzen also has 1x Cat C32 diesel generator set onboard to provide emergency power. In addition to being the largest Cat engines ever installed on a United States governmental vessel, the MaK power solutions are also largest Cat engines ever delivered to any United States government or military branch.

 

Manufactured in Rostock, Germany, the MaK DEP products feature an ultra-clean, HFO capable burning, long-stroke design in addition to a compact generator set design.

Providing unrivalled pickup capabilities, the MaK DEP products also feature low fuel consumption and increased overall efficiency.

 

Built by VT Halter Marine in Pascagoula, MS, Lorenzen is a 12,575-ton, 534-foot vessel crewed by a blend of government and civilian personnel. The vessel was delivered to the Military Sealift Command and formally accepted by the US government in January 2012. Once fully operational, the vessel will conduct a variety of missions on behalf of the U.S. government.
