MTU To Unveil
New Generation Engine,
Series 595, At SMM '90
German engine manufacturer
MTU Friedrichshafen recently an- nounced it will present its new Se- ries 595 diesel engine for the first time at the International Shipping and Marine Technology Market,
SMM '90, in Hamburg, West Ger- many.
The new Series 595 includes 12- and 16-cylinder models, with power ratings ranging from 1,980 to 4,320 kw (2,695-5,875 hp). Each cylinder in the engine will displace 5.95 lit- ers. Both engines will be on display at MTU's stand.
J. Barry Dvoracek, manager of marketing services, MTU North
America, said: "Since MTU's incor- poration in 1969, this [Series 595] is the first engine which truly has been conceived, designed and built by
MTU. All of our others, including the popular Series 396, are based on engines which were in production prior to 1969." "As a result," Mr. Dvoracek continued, "this new Series is the outcome of MTU's many years of experience in the production of die- sel engines—primarily for marine use—and as such will incorporate the most technologically advanced innovations in diesel engines to- day."
Complementing MTU's product line in the medium power range, this new series was designed with both high-performance operation and continuous-duty service in mind, and it is the outcome of consistent research, development and decades of experience in modern diesel engi- neering. Future demands for envi- ronmental compatibility, operating and maintenance economy, as well as operational reliability were given careful consideration in the design concept.
Some of the planned applications include fast ships, ferries and pas- senger boats.
MTU plans to reveal more details about the series after the exhibi- tion.

Helps To Make The Right
Choice Of Sigma Product
Sigma Coatings recently pub- lished the Sigma Tank Coating File.
This is No. 2 in a series of "system" files being dispatched by the com- pany over the next few months. (An article on No. 1 in the series, Sigma
Antifoulings File, appeared in the
July 1990 issue of MARITIME RE-
PORTER/Engineering News, page 16.)
The new 12-page Tank Coating
File contains a wealth of useful information on the choice and appli- cation of tank coatings. Included are chapters with advice on choosing the right system and the right choice of tank coating. Sigma's five basic tank coating systems capable of withstanding more than 5,000 liq- uid cargoes are discussed and their individual properties described. A tank coating specification chart is also included.
To further help customers make the right choice, detailed data sheets are available concerning the particular properties and benefits of all the various types of tank coatings produced by Sigma.
As part of a backup service, Sig- ma lists a great number of tank- cleaning chemicals from recognized manufacturers, which will not have any detrimental effect on their tank coating systems. An added advan- tage is that the smooth coating sur- faces can be easily and effectively cleaned, so that subsequent cargoes are not contaminated.
The Tank Coating File, its asso- ciated fact sheets and close consul- tation with a Sigma Coatings repre- sentative assure making the right choice of a Sigma product.
