- Ship structure already is strengthened for engine seating , so no need of additional strengthen
- There are more no: of nodal points
- Cross sectional area is more , so strengthening required is less.
- No need of separate LO arangment as the chain\ gear LO supply can be tapped for using in thrust bearing.
- Thrust collars outside is having the sproket , so space saving.
- Both side of the collar have thrust pads
The electrohydraulic control mechanisms of the ME engine replace the following components of the conventional MC engine: Chain drive for camshaft Camshaft with fuel cams, exhaust cams and indicator cams Fuel pump actuating gear, including roller guides and reversing mechanism Conventional fuel pressure booster and VIT system Exhaust valve actuating gear and roller guides Engine driven starting air distributor Electronic governor with actuator Regulating shaft Engine side control console Mechanical cylinder lubricators. The Engine Control System of the ME engine comprises: Control units Hydraulic power supply unit Hydraulic cylinder units, including: Electronically controlled fuel injection, and Electronically controlled exhaust valve activation Electronically controlled starting air valves Electronically controlled auxiliary blowers Integrated electronic governor functions Tacho system Electronically controlled Alpha lubricators
