Landing craft to take engines from Scania

Scania : 08 November, 2012  (Application Story)
Finland's navy has contracted Scania to supply 16 litre V8 engines for use in Watercat M18 landing craft
Landing craft to take engines from Scania

Scania has landed a prestigious order to supply 24 diesel engines for the Finnish Navy’s new high-speed landing crafts. The vessels are scheduled for delivery during 2014 - 2016.

Built and designed by Marine Alutech, the Finnish navy’s new high-speed Watercat M18 AMC landing crafts are fitted with twin 16-litre V8 engines from Scania. With 29 tonnes displacement, the 19.3-metre vessels have a broad range of applications such as troop and medical emergency transportation, evacuation tasks and landing operations.

The Watercat is powered by two Scania engines, developing 662 kW (900 hp) each, at 2,300 r/min, driving via a water-jet propulsion system. This gives the vessel a cruising speed of 35 knots and a top speed of over 40 knots, with an operating range of 200 nautical miles.

The initial order is for 12 landing craft, and thus 24 engines, with an option for additional deliveries.
