The C-series engine and genset have a simple and robust design with a reduced number of components. It is a modern engine at an early phase of its design life. Introduced at 300kW/cyl., it is now rated at 330kW/ cyl. and is equally suitable for main propulsion, either with mechanical transmission or in a diesel electric system, or as a marine generating set.
With 6, 8 and 9 cylinders in-line, the Bergen C-series has a range of operating speeds from 720rpm to 1,000rpm and can be supplied for powers of 1,920 to 3,000kW.
