VM 32E Marine Propulsion Engine

Photos

The new VM 32 E engine is designed for our offshore customers seeking the greatest reliability and durability in combination with stability at high power output. The VM 32 E engine extends the output range of our recently announced M 32 E in-line engine above 5 MW and stands out with the same superior serviceability and long maintenance intervals. Additional properties of the VM 32 E are power output of 560 kW/cylinder, 100% PTO capability and a large portfolio of application-driven options. The VM 32 E has an improved power to weight ratio. It is the best solution for engine rooms that occupy fewer frames. Besides, the VM 32 E is a SCR, ready for the new Cat® SCR System to fulfill IMO III exhaust gas emissions.

Features

Part load optimization kit (PLK) for constant speed available.

Flexible Camshaft Technology (FCT) allows lower SFOC at part load area.

Technically lower risk – application of existing technology

High-efficiency turbocharger

Moderate temperature level of components surrounding the combustion chamber, Corrosion-free turbocharger casing without water cooling

Moderate temperature level of components surrounding the combustion chamber, Corrosion-free turbocharger casing without water cooling

Installation-friendly, because of pumps and filters installed on the engine

Lubricating oil automatic filter fitted to the engine, Replaces duplex filter and separate automatic filters, Pumps and filters operate without any external power, Reduces the parts requirements
