It's a make of industrial or marine engines.
The company itself is huge and is continually buying up others so they now own Sulzer (a make of large marine engines) and heaps of other marine related companies, plus no doubt lots of others that I've never heard of.

Well I'd say, get posting with it, think it would be very interesting, you'll soon find out with the number of views of it wether people are interested or not

You'll have to hold tight for the mo as I'm engaged in bodgineering - trying to seal up a thermal fluid heater matrix thats almost inacessible without spending a day or two unbrazing and removing AC and oil pipework.

Also, don't get too excited about the size - I've only got pics here of a 320mm bore Wartsila, not a big slowspeed diesel!

Lil' ol' donkey engine then Luke, in comparison
It'll be interesting I'm sure Boyo - anything with a 320mm bore is serious cubes!!!!!

Haha they'll have to do more than up it judging by the TENS of thousands of views that the tilty and duck threads have at least some people like what we put up
