I've just taken over a ship with 3 of these engines. They're 'interesting', to say the least. I've worked with many different B&W/Holeby/MAN offerings over the years, but these are going to be a challenge, I suspect. I was surprised to see that the only monitoring on each cylinder is a single thermocouple, and there is no method of checking peak pressures either, so we are operating very much 'in the dark' as far as balancing the units to deliver even power outputs is concerned. Does anyone else have experience of them? They operate (by design) on HFO too, so I suspect that fuel pump/injector wear may be an issue, especially if the previous operators' staff weren't particularly careful with fuel treatmen
I did not find the right solution from the internet.
