Engine: Man V12 2000hp

At the 2018 Cannes boat show, MAN Engines debuted the new V12-2000, which is the only twelve-cylinder V-engine with 2000hp to date, which generates enormous power from 24 litres of displacement.  The V12-2000 engine impresses with extremely high power densities of 61kw per litre of displacement. The minimal space requirement and low weight spell out a clear advantage in terms of ship design, when compared to similarly powerful engines with larger displacement and more cylinders. This is because the installation dimensions of the V12-1900 have been retained, as they were already compact. These dimensions are 2,159 x 1,153 x 1,272 mm and a dry weight of 2380kg has also remained the same; through a power increase of the engines, this also contributes to a noticeably lower power/weight ratio of 1.62 kg/kW.  Through a series of modifications, MAN engineers have managed a power increase of 100hp respectively, compared to the previously most powerful V12 engine from their range. The performance-oriented design is supported by an improved injection system and new turbo charger. This is aided by newly developed cylinder heads and an adjusted cooling system which noticeably provides thermal relief for the engine with its high performance. Additionally, a new crankcase which has been reinforced in significant areas, ensures high performance throughout the entirety of the engine’s long service life. Highly efficient combustion allows the V12-2000 to run quietly, as is typical for MAN Engines, and with low fuel consumption.  The V12-2000 offers customers the most powerful engine above the V12-1900, the previously most powerful engine, from the MAN engines range. The superior engine performance allows shipyards to access additional possibilities for equipping larger ship series of around 100 feet with MAN engines.
