Hatz Presents New Engine Concept Study
Hatz Diesel presented the concept study of the new 4H50TIC as a marine version at SMM.
The engine has been manufactured in series production since the beginning of 2014 and is designed primarily for use in construction machinery, as well as for stationary and mobile applications. The engine has been converted for use as a marine propulsion engine, with keel cooling adopted for the required engine cooling and to reduce heat radiation and insulation was installed for the exhaust silencer. Besides this, the 4H50TIC marine includes the same characteristics as the base engine. The two-liter, four-cylinder turbo engine is equipped with a BOSCH common rail system with 1,800 bar rail pressure. Hatz said the engine sets new standards in its class in terms of power to weight ratio, size and fuel efficiency.
