WinD’s 14RT – flex96C
On September 1, 2006, the first 14-cylinder low-speed engine was mounted on a large, quick cargo ship. The 14-cylinder Wärtsilä RT-flex96C engine was created by the Wärtsilä Corporation and is the most potent engine in the world, producing 80,080 kW (108,920 bhp) at 102 rpm. The Wärtsilä RT-flex96C engine, which has 14 cylinders, is a notable development in ship propulsion. In order to boost the power available to meet the next generation of massive containerships, it combines the benefits of tried-and-true engine designs with the complete adaptability of RT-flex common-rail technology.

A maximum of 12 cylinders have traditionally been used in the construction of low-speed marine engines. But when it became clear that the anticipated container ships would require more power than the RT A96C and RT-flex96C low-speed engines could provide, a solution was discovered to increase the engine’s power range to 80,080 kW by also providing 13 and 14 – cylinder engines. The RT-flex 96C design, which has 14 cylinders, was created from the RT A96C engine, which has been used extensively in container ships since 1998. As a result, it gains from the extensive service knowledge gained working with engines of the same kind. More than 300 RT-flex 96C and RT A96C engines are now in use or on order around the world.
