Diesel engines extend range

  • 18-Jun-2009 10:21 EDT

The Series 1600 diesel engines from MTU extend its engine program in the lower power output range from 270 to 730 kW (360 to 980 hp). The engines were based on an individual cylinder piston capacity of 1.75 L, one six-cylinder inline engine model, and V-engine models with eight-, 10-, and 12- cylinder configurations that cover a displacement range of 10.5 to 21 L. The engine family is designed for applications such as power generation, construction and industrial equipment, agricultural and forestry equipment, and rail vehicles. The 12-V engines for emergency and peak-shaving power generation are scheduled for launch this fall.
