The name for overall economy

The confirmed low fuel consumption of RTA Superlongstrokes is a bonus for shipowners that have already ordered them. But low consumption alone will not ensure economical operation. And ultralow fuel consumption and shaft speeds have their price. The answer: optimization of all the cost factors found in the overall economy of our R-type diesels; rugged, reliable design combining experience with future needs; short engines and length-saving power take-off concepts for economic auxiliary power generated by the main engine. Where engine room heights are limited, the Sulzer medium-speed Z/ZA40 and AS/AT 25 engines offer equivalent overall economy on heavy fuel, too. And when it's time to part, the Sulzer engine will increase the selling price of your vessel.

Overall economy including low fuel consumption is no surprise.

After all, our name depends on it.
