Compact and flat: MAN is one of the few suppliers with flat, horizontal engines in its product range. The current third generation of the D2876 LUE63x generates more power with the same installation space – the ideal foundation for retrofitting railcars.
The horizontal D2876 LUE63x is one of the most compact engines in its class. As compared to the predecessor engine, the efficient MAN engine provides an extended range of outputs to 390 kW (530 HP) at 1,800 rpm which it obtains from a displacement of 12.8 litres. With the further development of the 6-cylinder engine in its third generation, MAN deliberately relies on only slight structural changes.
“With the D2876 LUE63x, we’re offering our customers the sophisticated, tried-and-tested technology of our efficient MAN rail engines. At the same time, rail operators get maximum flexibility for remotorisation. Benefits range from the identical interfaces in the power pack right up to spare parts the customers already have in stock and can still use”, said Reiner Roessner, Head of Sales at MAN Engines.
