New 8-Cylinder Series 4000 Iron Men Engine Unveiled at the WorkBoat Show


The MTU booth at the International WorkBoat Show featured the new 8-cylinder Series 4000 engine, the latest in the “Iron Men” family of engines specially optimized for the heavy-duty application requirements of workboats. With this addition, the Series 4000 Iron Men engines are now available in three configurations – 8V, 12V and 16V – covering a power range of 1000 to 3000 hp.

The new engine will be a competitive repower option for all workboats in the 1000 to 1340 hp power range. As with the other configurations in the Series 4000 Iron Men range, the 8V offers EPA Tier 2 certification with efficient fuel consumption, long maintenance intervals and maximized availability and reliability. Specific fuel consumption of the Series 4000 workboat engine has been reduced to 195 g/kWh, and maintenance intervals for major overhauls have been extended to as long as 34 000 h, depending on output and load profile.

MTU also displayed its EPA Tier 2-compliant Series 2000 M60 engine as well as the Series 60 engine, which is also EPA Tier 2-compliant and has long been a mainstay in the workboat market. The Series 2000 M60 is available in both 12V and 16V configurations and covers a range of 805 to 1070 hp.

As a complete systems provider, MTU also highlighted its control systems, genuine parts and service products at the show.
