The Wärtsilä RT-flex96C is the biggest and most potent diesel engine in the world. The fourteen cylinders in the RT-flex96C, built-in F, have the power to run an entire suburBᴀɴ town with 107,389 horsepower and more than 7,000,000Nm of torque. The engine is 44 feet tall, 90 feet long, and weighs 2,300 tons, making it larger than a four-story building. Even though the engine’s redline is 102 RPM, the torque is sufficient to ᴅᴇsᴛʀᴏʏ a tank.
Each of the 14 built-in cylinders uses 6.5 ounces of fuel in a single cycle to generate 5700 kW of energy. Although this might seem like a lot, the engine is really one of the least polluting of its kind and incredibly efficient. What type of beast would need such a tremendous quantity of power, you might be wondering. Of contrast to most other ships in her class, which typically cruise at 20 knots, the Wärtsilä RT-flex96C engine was installed and eventually took sail on the Emma Maersk in 2006.
This cargo ship is capable of moving 11,000 20-foot shipping containers at a quick speed of 31 knots.
Regularly, the ship brings cargo from C to the US, arriving four days early and saving the company a lot of money. With an additional 86 on the way, there are already 25 of these engines patrolling the waters of the world.
