Economical and environmentally friendly, the 48/60 is a prime mover in the truest sense. With an electrical genset output range of 12,411 kW to 18,654 kW, this reliable, high output engine is the four-stroke heart of medium and large engine-based plants all over the world.

The 48/60 engine is capable of continuous operation on heavy oil in an output range of 20% to 100%. For brief periods, it can even operate below 20%.

For engines driving a generator, a 10% overload is allowed for a brief period for governing purposes (e.g. a suddenly applied load) to prevent a frequency drop.)
