With the design and development of the 6DL36, ABC confirms its position as a leading manufacturer in the medium-speed engine market. The 6DL36 has been built with continuous operation, low fuel and lube oil consumption and a maximum usability in mind.

This 6-cylinder inline engine, with a bore x stroke of 365 mm x 420 mm, delivers more than 650 kW per cylinder at 750 rpm. The low brake mean effective pressure (BMEP) of only 24 bar ensures a higher reliability and lifetime of the engine. Additionally, 100 % of the power is available on the power take-off (PTO) side.

The 6DL36 has been developed with proven though state-of-the-art technologies such as exhaust gas recirculation (EGR), variable valve timing (VVT), 2-stage turbocharging, Miller timing and a radically optimized common rail system.

The customer can choose between a common rail or full mechanical PLN (Pump-Line-Nozzle) fuel injection system. To comply with the most stringent emission standards, ABC also offers the possibility to opt for EGR or an aftertreatment system such as SCR or oxidation catalyst.

The engine has been designed in such a way that it can be maintained and overhauled in a smooth and simple manner. Changing the cylinder heads has never been easier thanks to the innovative design of the cylinder packs. The engine can be equipped with an (optional) monitoring system, allowing the crew to perform predictive maintenance and thus maximizing the uptime of the engine.

The 6DL36 can run on diesel, gas oil (GO) and Heavy Fuel Oil (HFO) and ensures a safe investment for anyone who’s in need of a reliable source of energy.
