J-Eng tests small bore powerhouse
Japan Engine Corp (J-Eng) has completed the shop test of its debut ten-cylinder, 500mm bore engine, destined for a roro vessel under construction for Fujitrans Corporation at Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ Shimonoseki shipyard.
The 10UEC50LSE-Eco-B1 engine will be delivered to the shipyard on 29 November. It is the first 10-cylinder engine in the 500mm bore class which is a core part of J-Eng’s range, meeting the ship owner’s demands of high output but with limited engine room height – thus requiring a larger number of relatively small bore cylinders.
The company noted that it expected a strong uptake in this engine type among roro vessels, as other engine manufacturers “have no comparable line-up”.
J-Eng was created when Mitsubishi Heavy Industries’ two-stroke engine business merged with that of licensee Kobe Steel earlier this year. The company noted that its strong manufacturing experience, gained from being the only two-stroke licensor that both designs and manufactures its engines, contributed to the rapid development of the new engine.
