Caterpillar Marine announced the introduction of optional part load kits for the MaK™ M 32 E platform. Developed specifically for offshore vessels, the M 32 E part load kits are available for both constant speed and variable speed operations. Both kits combine lowest possible fuel consumption in part load range with highest possible power output at full load. Offshore vessel applications, specifically Offshore Supply Vessels and Anchor Handling Tug Supply vessels, typically encounter a significant period during their lifetime where they have limited power demand from the engines. Operating in stand-by or dynamic positioning mode often requires the use of multiple engines in combination with low power consumption, resulting in low load operation of two or three engines at the same time.
