General Electric's turbocharged V-16 has rating of 3,500 bhp. cient combustion system offer a low fuel rate. Additional features, such as easy accessibility to com- ponents and maximum standard- ization of parts, offers marine users low maintenance and a min- imum spare parts inventory.
General Electric states their engine's modern design concept offers significant advantages, in- cluding: A reliable constant pres- sure stainless-steel exhaust mani- fold located in the "V" of the en- gine block for easy accessibility;
Effective operation with a wide variety of lube oils; All oil pas- sages to the bearing positions ac- cessible through plugs at the top of the gallery. Engine protection includes automatic shutdown upon detection of low water pressure, low lube oil pressure, engine over- speed, or excessive crankcase pressure.
GE's exhaust-driven turbo- charger contributes significantly to the engine's low fuel rate.
Unitized cylinders are a unique feature of the General Electric diesel engine. Each is mounted on top of the main frame with four bolts and has individual water and air passages, completely isolated from the main frame. Three ma- jor elements—the liner, steel head insert, and external jacket—make up the unitized cylinder. The cyl- inder can be removed for inspec- tion, maintenance, and repair. In- spection, maintenance, and re- placement of pistons is also sim- plified. With the cylinder re- moved, the piston is completely exposed. All unitized cylinders on
GE diesel engines are interchange- able.

Savannah: Class of '80
In the East, our yard gets pretty good grades.
Not because of our cranes, dock, specialized shops, good prices, or our perfect working climate.
But because we have the best bunch of workers in the business. Men like Arthur Allen.
Arthur just finished a long apprenticeship in our Inside
Machine Shop. He's now a Journeyman Machinist - a first class mechanic. Which means he's as good as they come.
It isn't easy to make the grade at Savannah. If a man doesn't cut it he doesn't graduate.
Our work-voyage repairs, major conversions, and scheduled drydocking-is done by skilled people like Arthur. Competent, hard-working, gung-ho men and women. Many of whom have been here their whole working lives.
We're proud of them.
We want to thank them all.
Publicly. For making us the first-class yard in the South.

The 20/27 engine is offered in diesel, spark-ignited gas, and dual- fuel versions. The cylinder rating of the diesel engine is 100 kW (134 bhp) at 1,000 rpm according to the ISO definition. Its mean effective pressure and mean pis- ton speed are 14.15 bar and 9 me- ters per second, respectively.
Since the 20/27 engine was put on the market in September 1979,

Mitsui Engineering & Ship- building Company, Ltd., a Bur- meister & Wain licensee, has achieved world records in diesel engine building four times in less than a decade. Its first, for ag- gregated bhp for a single type marine diesel was established in 1968 when a total production of four million bhp was reached.

Against this background MTU unveiled, at the recent Ship, Ma- chinery, Marine Technology In- ternational Exhibition and Con- gress in Hamburg, a new 16-cyl- inder engine, the 396-03 series, with the same hardware common- ality as in the existing 6-, 8-, and 12-cylinder models. The 03 series enables the same design principle to be retained up to a maximum output level of 1,760 kw (2,400 bhp).
