Diesel engine manufacturer MTU has engines and systems that are a part of many U.S. Navy and Coast Guard programs.

 

US Navy Programs with MTU Engines:

 

  • 82’ Mark V Special Operations Boat; Equipment: 2 x 12V396 Propulsion Diesel Engines w/marine gears and MCS-5 propulsion monitoring

 

  • Mark V.1 Special Operations Boat, ONR Demonstrator; Equipment: 2 x 16V 2000 M93 Propulsion Diesel Engines w/marine gears and Blue Vision Propulsion Monitoring

 

  • 85’ Guardian Patrol Boat; Equipment: 2 x 12V4000 Propulsion Diesel Engines w/marine gears and DDEC Controls and Displays

 

  • 262’ USS Sea Fighter, ONR Demonstrator; Equipment: CODOG Propulsion Plant with 2 x MTU 16V 595 Main Propulsion Diesel Engines and 2 x GE LM2500 Propulsion Gas Turbines; 4 x S60 Generator sets and MCS-5/RCS-5 Ship wide automation system

 

  • Joint High Speed Vessel (JHSV); Equipment: 4 x 20V 8000 M71L Main Propulsion Diesel Engines (9.1MW / 12,205 HP)

 

  • Independence Class Littoral Combat Ship (LCS); Equipment: 2 x 20V 8000 M91 Main Propulsion Diesel Engines (9.1MW / 12,205 HP), 2 x 8V 396 TE54 Shock Rated Diesel Generator Sets, 2 x 8V 396 TE54 Non-Shock Rated Diesel Generator Sets and 1 x 8V 396 TE54 Shock Rated Diesel Hydraulic Power Unit 

 

US Coast Guard Programs with MTU Engines:

               

  • 47’ Motor Life Boat (MLB); Equipment: 2 x 6V92 Main Propulsion Diesel Engines w/marine gears and DDEC Controls and Displays

 

  • 44’ Response Boat Medium (RBM); Equipment: 2 x Series 60 Main Propulsion Diesel Engines w/ marine gears and DDEC Controls and Displays

 

  • 87’ Coastal Patrol Boat (CPB); Equipment: 2 x 8V396 Main Propulsion Diesel Engines w/ marine gears and MCS-5/RCS-5 with ODR

 

  • National Security Cutter (WMSL); Equipment: CODAG Propulsion Plant with 2 x MTU 20V1163 TB93 Main Propulsion Diesel Engines and 1 x GE LM2500 Propulsion Gas Turbine; 1 x RENK combining and reduction gear, 2 x RRNMI CRP Propeller systems, and MCS-5/RCS-5 Propulsion Control and Monitoring system

 

  • Sentinel Class Fast Response Cutter (WPC); Equipment: 2 x 20V4000 M93L Main Propulsion Diesel Engines, 2 x ZF 23560C Reduction Gears, 1 x MTU MCS-5 Type 2 Monitoring and RCS Control System for the propulsion plant and 1 x MTU Shipwide Callosum Platform Management System

 

I asked Tom Lewis, MTU’s senior manager for marine defense, how MTU’s contribution to the National Security Cutter, Joint High Speed vessel and LCS-2 differ?

 

“For the National Security Cutter MTU was awarded the Propulsion Plant Single Source Vendor (PPSSV) Contract.   As the PPSSV, MTU has supplied the entire propulsion system hardware and integrated it for installation on the vessel.  MTU also provides assistance in the installation, as well as testing and trails of the entire propulsion plant onboard the vessel,” he said.

 

“For the Littoral Combat Ship MTU has provided the Main Propulsion Diesel Engines along with vital and non-vital generator sets and a hydraulic power unit that provide power to the steerable bow thruster,” said Lewis.  “MTU has had to have the vital generator set and hydraulic power unit barge tested to demonstrate compliance with MIL-S-901D Grade A shock requirements.  MTU has also supplied some integration support for the supplied engines and will provide assistance in the installation, testing and trails of the engines onboard the vessel.

 

According to Lewis, MTU has also supplied the Main Propulsion Diesel Engines.  “For the Joint High Speed Vessel MTU has also supplied some integration support for the supplied engines and will provide assistance in the installation, testing and trails of the engines onboard the vessel.”
