The world’s largest and most powerful diesel engine is the Wärtsilä RT-flex96C. The fourteen cylinders of the RT-flex96C, built-in Fɪɴʟᴀɴᴅ, can produce 107,389 horsepower and more than 7,000,000Nm of torque, enough to power an entire suburban town. The engine is larger than a four-story structure in size, weighing 2,300 tons and standing 44 feet tall and 90 feet long. The engine’s redline is 102 RPM, but the torque is enough to demolish a tank.
In one cycle, each of the 14 built-in cylinders consumes 6.5 ounces of fuel, producing 5700 kW of electricity. While this may appear to be a lot, the engine is really very efficient and one of the least polluting of its kind. You might be wondering what kind of beast would require such a massive amount of power. The Wärtsilä RT-flex96C engine was fitted and ultimately set sail on the Emma Maersk in 2006, a cargo ship capable of transporting 11,000 20-foot shipping containers at a rapid speed of 31 knots, compared to most other ships in its class that cruise at 20 knots.
The ship transports cargo from Cʜɪɴᴀ to the United States on a regular basis, delivering four days ahead of schedule and saving a lot of money. There are already 25 such engines cruising the waters of the world, with another 86 on the way.
