Friedrichshafen/Monaco, 21 September 2011. From 21 to 24 September, at Europe’s foremost mega yacht exhibition, the Monaco Yacht Show, Tognum will be showcasing its latest mtu-brand Series 4000 engine for yachts over 50 meters (booth: Quai chicane QC 12). The company’s exhibits will also include automation and service solutions.
mtu has decades of experience as a single-source provider of custom-tailored propulsion plants. And as the world’s leading manufacturer of large, high-speed diesel engines and propulsion systems, the company works jointly with the shipyards to develop cost-efficient system solutions. Series 4000 units are particularly popular here for operation in both semi-displacement and displacement yachts.
Model 4000 M73/M93 diesel engines are powerful, clean and they boast an outstanding power-to-weight ratio which puts them at the top of their class for acceleration. Available in 12, 16 and 20-cylinder versions, they cover a performance range from 2,340 to 4,300 kW (3,140 to 5,770 bhp) and have enjoyed a high level of success in yacht applications for many years.
The latest engines in the series, Model 4000M53/M63, are available in 8V, 12V and 16V versions covering the 746 to 2,240 kW (1,000 to 3,000 bhp) range. Their low fuel consumption, which extends the vessels’ maximum range, makes them particularly suitable for operation in displacement yachts. This long-stroke engine develops high torque and thus delivers excellent acceleration even at low load. Other outstanding features include the engines’ high levels of availability and reliability coupled with long maintenance intervals of up to 33,000 hours which are especially significant for displacement yachts. The engines also offer excellent acoustic characteristics which contribute considerably to the level of on-board comfort.
All Series 4000 engines meet globally applicable marine exhaust standards and come with SOLAS (Safety of Life at Sea) certification as standard.
Alongside its outstanding products, mtu also offers its customers comprehensive and reliable support services in its mtu ValueCare program which includes extended warranty coverage (Extended Propulsion Coverage, EPC). Also available are precision-tailored maintenance contracts, “Remote Services” and the fast and dependable supply of high-quality original-brand spare parts anywhere in the world.
