About the Sulzer RL engine types

RL56, RL66, RL76, RL90 are the engine types Damen Schelde Marine Services supplies premium quality parts for. The RLA56, a small bore two-stroke engine was introduced in 1977, incorporated the basic design concept of the successful RND and RND-M serie but extended the power range at the lower end.

The RLA of comparatively long stroke design, was the first model in the RLA series. Major features of the RL types were:

  • A bedplate design with integrated thrust block
  • A semi-built or monobloc type crankshaft without a separate thrust shaft
  • Location of the camshaft gear drive at one end for engines of four to eight cylinders
  • Multiple cylinder jackets
  • A bore-cooled piston crown
  • Modified crosshead
  • A new design of air receiver
