QSK60 for Marine

Overview

QSK60 for Marine

1491-2013 kW | 2000-2700 hp

  • Designed to withstand the challenging conditions commercial marine operators often face; this same reliable, durable power is now available for recreational boating applications, including super yachts and yacht support vessels
  • Improved idle stability and reduced noise and vibration are a direct result of the Cummins Modular Common Rail fuel system
  • In-cylinder technology to meet IMO Tier II and EU Stg. 3a; platform for future emissions in the U.S. and globally
  • Covered by a comprehensive one year warranty and backed by Cummins global service network
  • Built at Daventry Engine Plant in Daventry, U.K.

Features

Engine Design – Robust engine block designed for continuous duty operation and long life. Metric O-ring seals and edge molded gaskets eliminate fluid leaks. Ductile single-piece iron piston design with hardened
liners and nitride coated rings for exceptional durability

Fuel System
– Modular Common Rail Fuel System provides constant high injection pressure regardless of engine speed or load condition. Benefits include low noise and vibration for quiet operation, idle stability and improved low-end torque

Cooling System – Low temperature aftercooling. Engine-mounted titanium plate heat exchanger provides superior durability with minimal maintenance requirements

Exhaust System – Dry exhaust manifold with water shielding for reduced fuel consumption and improved performance

Air System – Cummins turbochargers optimized for marine applications. Two pump, two loop, low temperature aftercooling for efficient operation and optimization of performance

Lubrication System – Standard capacity (261 L [69 gal]) or high capacity (378 L [100 gal]) marine grade oil pan. Pre-lube starter protects engine from damage due to dry starts

Electronics – 24v Quantum System electronics feature a proven ECM to monitor operating parameters, while providing diagnostics, prognostics and complete engine protection. Simplified electrical customer interface box for all vessel connections to reduce installation complexity

Certifications – Complies with IMO Tier II and EU Stage IIIa emissions regulations. Designed to meet the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) and SOLAS requirements. Consult your local Cummins professional for a complete listing of available class approvals
