The Largest Marine Engine Ever Made Is So Ridiculously Awesome

Industry News

It has how much horsepower?!

Some of you may have seen this thing before, but for those who haven’t we just felt the need to share it with you, too. It’s simply way too cool to not know about it. What you’re looking at is the largest marine engine ever made. Yes, marine as in for boats. The Finnish Warsila-Sulzer RTA96-C has a total of 107,389 horsepower and it provides power for some of the largest sea vessels on the planet. It features a two-stroke turbo that runs on heavy fuel and is a total of 89 ft. long and 44 ft. wide.

It has 1,820 liters per cylinder and 10,920 to 25,480 liters in total - it supposedly can be configured with six to fourteen cylinders, according to Jalopnik. And get this: it consumes more than 39 barrels of oil per hour. Do the math and that comes to $34 per minute to keep running. Check out the images ahead showing the pistons, crank, and various other components. Mind boggling. Simply mind boggling.
