Abstract

Marine diesel engines are very similar to the self-ignition engines in heavy-duty vehicles, but they are generally larger, more complex, and operate with higher efficiency. About 75% of all marine diesel engines are four-stroke engines; however, 75% of the installed power is produced by two-stroke engines. Four-stroke marine diesel engines are gaining importance not only in inland, but also in marine shipping, primarily in smaller container and bulk carrier ships. Fuel consumption and exhaust gas emissions of ship engines depend not only on the principle of operation, but also on the type, the size, the power, the load, the speed, etc.
