The MAN Engine V12-2000 impress with extremely high power densities of 61 kW respectively per litre of displacement. The minimal space requirement and low weight spell out a clear advantage in terms of ship design, when compared to similarly powerful engines with larger displacement and more cylinders. This is because the installation dimensions of the V12-1900 – the formerly highest power levels – have been retained, as they were already compact. These dimensions are 2,159 x 1,153 x 1,272 mm (length x width x height) for the V12-2000, and 1,736 x 1,153 x 1,222 mm (length x width x height). The dry weights of 2,380 kg (V12-2000) have also remained the same; through a power increase of the engine, this also contributes to a noticeably lower power/weight ratio of 1.62 kg/kW for the V12-2000.
The V12-2000 offers customers the most powerful engine above the V12-1900, the previously most powerful engine, from the MAN Engines range. The superior engine performance allows shipyards to access additional possibilities for equipping larger ship series of around 100 feet with MAN engines.
