MAN Engines for Locomotives, Railcars, and Railway Gensets

Diesel Engine Range for Rail Applications

Diesel Engine Range for Rail Applications

MAN provides efficient diesel engines with 6 and 12 cylinders for use in railcars, long-distance and shunting locomotives, and track maintenance vehicles, and also for power supply. Ratings range from 257 kW (350 HP) for railcars or 265 kW (360 HP) for locomotives up to 735 kW (1,000 HP). For railway gensets, a broad spectrum of ratings from 230 kW to 543 kW (313 HP to 738 HP) is available. MAN engines are characterized by their compact size, allowing them to be fitted conventionally in the drive module or alternatively - to save space - under the floor or in the roof. The clear benefits are in their fast load pick-up and their economical long-term usage in compliance with global emission standards.
