  • Description

    A marine diesel engine - Japanese engineers claim it to be the largest in the world - has just been completed at Maizuru, by the Iino Shipbuilding and Engineering Company.

    This mammoth engine - more tan 18 yards long - weighs some 687 tons and consumes 2.5 tons of fuel an hour. It is to be installed in the tanker 'Kakuho Maru' 47,300-ton dead weight, now under construction for the Iino Line Company. When completed next March, the ship will be the biggest Japanese tanker, and have a service speed of 16 knots.

    The Iino-Sulzer engine was completed only 30 months after the Company was authorized by the Japanese Government to enter into a technical aid contract with Sulzer Brothers, Ltd. of Switzerland.
