Engineered and assembled in the U.S., the MP-4000 is the result of over 35 years experience in manufacturing, installation and customer service. It is powered by a single cylinder, high power to weight ratio, Farymann Diesel engine. The engine has a roller bearing supported crankshaft, a ball bearing supported camshaft and an emergency hand crank system. The freshwater cooling system cools the engine cylinder, cylinder head and the EW-designed oil cooler and generator. A freshwater to sea water heat exchanger prevents sea water from contaminating the engine and generator. The unit does not require any outside air for cooling. The control system includes an automatic shutdown system for low oil pressure, high engine coolant temperature and high exhaust manifold temperature (lack of sea water flow). A special feature includes pre-flooding the engine bearings with lubrication before the engine starts.
