After long years of absence the founder of combustion engines, the famous DEUTZ Company, comes with a new electronically / mechanically controlled diesel engine for marine application back on the market. The new TCD 2015 M has been developed based on its predecessor the 1015M. The already existing robust base design has been strengthened, the thermodynamics optimized and an electronically controlled injection system has been applied.The TCD 2015M comes as a six-cylinder unit in 90 degrees v-configuration with a total displacement of 11.9 l and as an eight-cylinder version with a total displacement of 15.9 l. Bore and stroke are of 132 by 145 mm which results in a displacement per cylinder of 2 l. Like all marine engines from DEUTZ, also the new development fulfills the stringent marine specific application requirements of the classification societies. Water-cooled exhaust manifolds and turbo-charger, double-walled injection lines, switchable fuel-filter and keel or raw-water cooling sy... [More]
