Large Bore Engine Market
High Efficiency Components for Tomorrow’s Large Bore Engines
The Large Bore Engine (LBE) industrial market includes 2-stroke and 4-stroke engines with bore sizes above approximately 145 mm. A typical application for 2-stroke LBEs is maritime propulsion for big vessels. The main focus in the 4-stroke area is maritime
propulsion for big but also for midsize and small vessels. This market also includes maritime auxiliary use, stationary power generation, railway, construction and the defense industries.
Technical challenges for LBEs are increasing, requiring each new engine generation to take ever larger steps in reducing emissions, fuel and oil consumption, downtime and running costs. That means optimizing every critical component to ensure it is as efficient as it possibly can be: not only in its specification, but also in the way it interacts with the complete engine system and the environment.
