High Efficiency, Lower Operating Costs
  • Miller cycle timing with combustion chamber and spark plug improvement help on saving up to 15% fuel gas per year
  • CG170 (non-miller) is optimized for Island-Mode capability
  • Gearbox helps limit wear and tear on engine components, lowering operating costs and increasing availability
Low installation, Building and Operating Costs
  • Extended maintenance intervals thanks to sooth-free combustion and enlarged oil tank
  • Low fuel consumption due to improved combustion chamber and pre-chamber spark-plugs
  • Flexible fields of application also with fluctuating gas qualities due to Total Electronic Management (TEM)
  • Optimized oil management
Optimized Lubrication Consumption
  • Consumes up to 1900 liter less lube oil per year than comparable models<\li>
  • Longer lubricant change and oil change intervals<\li>
