Engine: MTU 16V 2000 M94 2599hp

Tognum presented a new  MTU Series 2000 marine engine at the Cannes boat show.  The Series 2000 M94 marine engine boasts the highest performance values in its class and an improved power-to-weight ratio. An increase of up to 8 percent in power output has been achieved over the previous model. The 16-cylinder version,  has a power of 2599hp or 1,940 kW range at 2,450 rpm.  With respect to fuel consumption at cruising speed and generation of higher charge pressures at lower rpms, turbocharger performance has been enhanced, key to shortening acceleration time on seagoing vessels. On top of that, the unit meets all emissions standards applying to marine engines worldwide and comes automatically equipped with a SOLAS (Safety of Life At Sea) certificate. To ensure that the surface temperature of the engine never exceeds 220°C, the M94 also features double-walled fuel lines and triple-walled, water-cooled turbocharger and exhaust gas lines. That helps keep the temperature in the engine room relatively low, which in turn enhances comfort and safety. The M94 is also an exceptionally quiet engine, boasting extremely low sound pressure levels when idle or at low speeds.  The 2000 M94 is also to be available in 8, 10, and 12 cylinders versions with horsepower output starting from 1246hp.
