Rolls-Royce engines to power three double-ended ferries

MTU diesel engines will be used to propel three double-ended ferries in Turkey.





Updated on 08 Aug 2014 12:14 GMT

Friedrichshafen-headquartered Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG has won an order for six MTU diesel engines which will be used to propel three double-ended ferries in Turkey.

The ferries are being built by Turkey's Ceksan Shipyard and will be deployed by operator Izmir Metropolitan Municipality to power car and passenger ferries serving the Gulf of Izmir in western Turkey. The MTU 16V 4000 M54 engines each deliver 1685 kilowatts. For both shipyard and operator, this is a 'first' with MTU engines.

On double-ended ferries, an engine is installed both at the bow and the stern, which makes it possible for the symmetrically built vessels to change travel direction after loading and unloading. With just one engine switched on, the ferries are able to reach speeds of up to 14 knots.

The first two units are due to be shipped to Turkey in November 2014, and the remaining four in 2015. The engines are scheduled to go into service in 2015 and 2016.
