New | VM 32 C

The VM 32 C was introduced in 2000 in 12- and 16-cylinder versions. The generator set is designed to meet not only the demands of the marine market but also those of the stationary electric power generation and oil & gas industry. The modular construction of the engine, the integration of various functions into a single component, the robust design and the utilization of proven in-line engine components form the basis for a wide availability range of this engine. Reliable heavy fuel oil operation, low fuel and lubricating oil consumption together with easy maintenance and long maintenance intervals mean an outstanding economical operation.

The Modular Construction Of The Engine, The Integration Of Various Functions Into A Single Component, The Robust Design And The Utilization Of Already Proven, In-line Engine Components, Form The Basis For The Wide Availability Range Of This Engine.

The Consistent Application Of Mak Long-stroke Engine Design And Development, Along With The Incorporation Of As Many In-line Engine Components As Possible, Is Clearly And Impressively Demonstrated In The External Configuration: A Compact, Simple And Clean Design.

By Combining Increased Compression Ratio And The Miller Effect, Nox Emissions Can Be Reduced By Round About 30 % Without Sacrificing Engine Efficiency.

Building Upon The Emission Reduction System Integration Concept, Fct Achieves Synergy Between Flexible Fuel Systems And Advanced Air Systems With Maximum Utilization Of The Current Engine Design.
