Check this thing out. I know about the sulzer ship engine, but I didn't know that any engines like this were still being made. It's a true low speed in-line 6 that weighs over 14 tons.

Currently no listeroids, sad........ very sad.....
Just some other antique engines ranging from 40 pounds to 33,000 pounds each.

I would say thousands of engines of that type are made every year:

dunno if it is still in service, but in punta grande (spain) there was a 25 MW genny powered by a 100 rpm 2 stroke diesel.

these babies are 150 rpm



the MAN vee and doubleyew used in ships are 65 thousand shaft horsepower at 100 rpm

here's a small MAN, you can see 4 gantry levels, theres 2 more below



a mitsu UE



same engine, including the bits you cant see above

Original Lister D, megasquirt multifuel project, compressor and truck alternator.

These big marine diesels put an end to steam turbines on merchant shipping. They are far more fuel efficient, maybe the most efficient of all heat engines. They use exhaust heat to generate steam for turbine generators, etc. every new generation improving the total Engineroom Efficiency. I miss the steam days, but I bet diesels will pound coal dust before steam makes a comeback.

A while back there was a program on the tube showing a little-known part of the local electric grid powered by a stationary 2-stroke diesel from the 1930s that looked like one of these.  It's still used for peak-levelling but due to the smog-NAZIs, can't be run except under certain conditions.  Just starting it required a 600 HP electric motor to spin up the blower.  Most impressive!
