The M 32 C series is a genuine heavy fuel engine and 75% of all engines commissioned burn the economical heavy fuel oil. It is part of the long-stroke series, with a bore of 320 mm, has continued the market success of its predecessor in this bore size. Decisive factors in its development have been the requirements for maximum benefit to the customer, i.e. economy and operational reliability. Environmental aspects however have also been important. Operational results have fully confirmed the design objectives. Further development, which led to the M 32 C version with 500 kW/cyl., has provided even more benefits to the customer.
