Liebherr and Wärtsilä collaborated on the development of a high-speed diesel engine for maritime and offshore applications.

The new maritime engine Wärtsilä 14 made its appereance at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans (US), which took place from November 28 to 30. Thus Liebherr consolidates its mission as a technology partner in the development of 'four-handed' engine platforms (i.e. we are talking about the cooperation with Man and the current one with Deutz).

By introducing the new W14 engine, Wärtsilä aims to serve both propulsion and auxiliary gensets, as well as hybrid installations. The segments and vessel types where operating power, fuel type used and power to weight ratio better befit high-speed engines.

The product will be available in 12- and 16-cylinder configurations based on the D96 engine family, with a power output ranging between 755 and 1,340 kW in mechanical propulsion, and from 675 to 1,155 kWe in auxiliary and diesel-electric propulsion applications.
