VM 43 C - The Power to meet High Requirements Developed to meet the requirements of the cruise ship and ferry markets, this new engine series is the breakthrough into a new class of power. Designed state-of-the-art, engineered to lead. After the successful introduction to the market of four new engine series in only ten years, the extension to the program continues with a further engine-the power on offer from Caterpillar to 16 MW and therefore supports new and impor- tant market segments and groups of The external configuration of the engine clearly and impressively displays the pact,...

To ensure luxurious lifestyle on board, the propulsion plant plays an important role. ■ When talking about comfortable cruising, we mean: low emissions and low noise. ■ When talking about high reliability, we mean: sailing on schedule. ■ When talking about low operating costs, we mean: quick return of investments. The VM 43 C has been specially designed to meet the high requirements of the marine engine markets for cruise ships and ferries but also for other specialized ship types. High standards on cruise ships Cruise ships and passenger vessels are the unchallenged sovereigns of the seas....

The smallest parts determine the efficiency of the whole. The basic principle in the design and development of a V-engine series at Caterpillar is to use as many components as possible from the in-line engine version already in operation. basic design data such as bore, stroke and engine speed have been taken over completely from the in-line engine. In consequence, important components, such as cylinder head, connecting rod, piston crown, cylinder liner with calibra- tion ring, injection pump, valve drive, cool- ing water ring and turbocharger, could be transferred from the in-line engine...

VM 43 C - Economical from Installation to Operation binding. They only serve as standard values. These standard values can strictly observed and only MaK spare parts are used. Please consider as well the negative effect of bad fuel Long maintenance intervals and extended life form the basis for low operating costs. Complete engine The engine is marketed with standard- ized pump and filter equipment. The interfaces for the fuel, lubricating oil and cooling water systems are located at the free end of the engine for ease of Resilient foundation The resilient foundation system can be assembled...

VM 43 C - Emission Reduction Technology Environmental protection is also becoming increasingly important for seagoing ship- ping. Caterpillar Motoren recognized this trend in good time and, with the design and development of the modern long-stroke engine concept, created the conditions for engine operation at reduced emission engine lieswell below the International Maritime Organisation's limiting curve. The long-stroke concept for engine operation at reduced emission levels The following features characterise the concept which ensures, in addition to smooth running, maximum operational...
