MTU diesel engines are usually considered in connection with fast naval craft and boats for public authorities, as well as for yachts.

However, what is less well known is that MTU engines are also popu- lar in commercial applications throughout the world.

For example, around 500 engines of Series 331/396, 538 and 1163—as well as Series 652, which is no longer in the sales program—have been de- livered to date for the workboat market segment. When all the series that MTU markets are added to

Sulzer sets the standard

New marine diesel engines up to 1300 kW. Stroke/bore 1.5.

The high-tech solution for real heavy-fuel economy. A sound performance by Sulzer, a leader across the seven seas.

SULZER these, the number of engines deliv- ered is more than 1,000.

In freighters, pilot launches, fire- boats, oil-spill containment craft, dredges and floating cranes, to name just the main types, MTU engines have reached run times of up to 24,000 operating hours—in tugboats, even 30,000 hours. In the fast crew and supply boats of the offshore industry, the compact en- gines of Series 396 are the preferred power source; here, current run times of 20,000 have been logged.

MTU has long had a strong market position in hydrofoil and catamaran craft for fast passenger and freight service. To date, MTU

Friedrichshafen has delivered more than 600 engines for propulsion plants in hydrofoils and catama- rans.

Two orders for MTU diesel en- gines are of particular interest: (1)

Five of ten 450-passenger catama- rans ordered from a Norwegian shipyard are driven by two MTU 12-cylinder 396 TB63 engines pro- ducing a total of 1,960 kw (2,660 hp) at 1,650 rpm; the other five have 16- cylinder 396 TB83 engines with 3,020 kw (4,100 hp) at 1,940 rpm.

The first vessels put into service have already accumulated a total of over 30,000 operating hours. (2)

MTU contracted to deliver 38 en- gines—8V 396 TB83—to a Greek ship line for installation in hydrofoil craft to replace the original engines.

The continuous-duty power of the two engines together is 1,540 kw (2095 hp) at 1,900 rpm, enabling the 136-passenger hydrofoils to reach a speed of 32 knots.

Peugeot Engines & Components of Rutherford, N.J., offers the Peu- geot model XD3P diesel engine for both stationary and mobile applica- tions. The engine delivers 76 hp at 4,500 rpm.

Ricardo Comet V combustion chambers in the diesel engines mix air and fuel more effectively for more efficient combustion and max- imum power output. Cast iron blocks with integral cylinder liners improve cooling, increase life and facilitate servicing of the XD3P.

The compact 2.5-liter engines have excellent power-to-weight ratios.

Accessory PTO capabilities are available.

Peugeot now offers six models of liquid-cooled, four-cylinder diesel engines for OEM customers ranging from 50 to 110 hp. Compatible gaso- line/LPG fueled engines, ranging from 45 to 160 hp, are also part of the Peugeot OEM line.

Technical data on the Peugeot

XD3P engines for power applica- tions in material handling, agricul- tural and utility vehicles, as well as pump, compressor and generator drives is available. (continued on page 35)
