Bergen B36:45 gas engine

Defined by our customers. Technology developments carried over from 25+ years of experience.

The Bergen B36:45 gas range carries forward the Bergen engine family into a new era. The engine platform offers 600 kW per cylinder in a compact, modularized engine design. The new engine portfolio offers industry leading energy consumption and emission figures.

Our B36:45 gas engine share many of the design features and commonality on many engine components such as the engine block and crankshaft. This allows the flexibility to convert from gas to diesel, or vice versa, depending on our customers need.

In-line engines are offered in 6, 8 and 9 cylinder configuration spanning a power range from 3,600 kW to 5,400 kW. There is an option to also introduce a 7 cylinder engine if the market so require. The Vee engine comes first as a 12 cylinder engine at power output of 7,200 kW, with the V16 to follow.

Key features

  • Compact modularised design
  • Meet IMO Tier III
  • Single fuel = single bunkering
  • No purification system needed
  • Cleaner engine room
  • No oil spill during bunkering
  • No “switch over” problems - ref ECA or port regulations
  • Long-term compliance with local port regulations and potential benefits from taxation/green port dues
  • Same power as the diesel version: 600 kW/cylinder
  • VVT – Variable Valve Timing for optimum response and load increase
  • VTG – Variable Turbo Geometry
  • Inherently safe (double wall piping)
  • Possible conversion from gas to diesel vis versa
