Default New generator engine

We just received the first one of these in the US. 2,800 horsepower at 1,500 rpm, 30,000 pounds.


This engine alone weighs what our biggest V16 engine, genset and skid weigh combined.


There’s nothing on this bastard beside the valve covers a man can pick up.

It does look easy to work on even if you have to use a crane to move the parts.

Sometimes, with a good crane and operators, it can be easier than doing stuff by hand. The crane can hold a part 1/4” above it’s mating piece for much longer than any of the guys can!

None that I work on.

This thing runs on cow farts so it actually offsets emissions.

Yup. Spark ignited with prechamber heads.

Who makes this one ?

Pulling rod & main bearing caps is fun....But the hand access covers look pretty large.

How big is the oil sump ?

I'm surprised for what it cost, they only made a wood shipping pallet, not something
made of box tube.

governor-electronic or mechanical? for all that HP it sure doesn't leave much room for the housing/generator mount underneath the intake manifold.
An engine of that size would normally be a SAE#1 or bigger..kinda looks like a smallish #3 FWIW

I saw that too, but it might be an auxiliary drive.
The other end might be the main flange.
