Scania DI16 077M 16.4L V-8 - Torque

16.4 Liters And 2,254 LB-FT Of Swedish Diesel Power

Nov 14, 2014
The DI6 077M 16.4L diesel engine seen here was created in-house by Scania, a Södertälje, Sweden–based company that is better known as a maker of trucks and buses. The company, founded in 1891, alsobuilds high-powered diesel engines and has managed to avoid a profit loss since 1934 (that’s 7o years and counting).
The DI16 077M is a 16.4L V-8 diesel engine capable of making 1,000 hp and 2,254 lb-ft of torque at the flywheel. The engine has twin turbochargers that push air through a seawater-to-air intercooler and into modular cylinder heads that can be individually removed for repair and maintenance. This flexible architecture is shared with a 9.0L, inline five-cylinder engine, and a 13.0L, inline-six mill that were also designed in-house by Scania.
The 16.4L engine is used to provide marine diesel power for everything from ferries and rescue boats to military pursuit vessels. Different configurations of the 16.4L are also used for power generation and backup. In fact, these monster V-8 engines are being used to provide backup electricity to a House of Parliament, and to power the SAAO observatory in South Africa.

It is known for its ability to take sharp turns quickly and come to a full stop from its top speed of 40 knots (74 km/hr) in just 2.5 boat lengths.
