4BTA3.9-GM47 Auxiliary Engine

DCEC 4BTA3.9-GM47 marine auxiliary engine is a 4-cylinders in line, 3.9 liters four-strokes engine with 102mm bore and 120 mm stroke.

Equipped with BYC A fuel pump and GAC electronic governor, engine comes with turbocharger and Water-Air Intercooler.

The prime power for generator set 1500RPM of DCEC 4BTA3.9-GM47 marine auxiliary engine is 47kW.

DCEC provides both heat exchanger cooling and radiator cooling marine auxiliary engines, which mainly using for marine main generator and marine emergency generator.

For the emergency generator set applications, we provide additional options for customers such as dual starter motor system (we provide both electric and spring starter motor for customers), which are required by most of international classifications.

All of DCEC marine auxiliary engine are comes with dry type exhaust system, which means dry type exhaust manifold and dry type turbocharger, SeaMac provides upgrading services for water-cooled exhaust system, which modify dry type exhaust system into water-cooled exhaust system, which are quite important and often requested by passenger boat projects.

Advantages of 4BTA3.9-GM47 Auxiliary Engine

  • Advanced design and sophisticated manufacturing, adapt to various harsh working conditions, high strength, strong ability to work under heavy loads.

  • The cylinder block and cylinder head adopt integrated design to prevent the occurrence of engine water and oil leakage. The parts are about 40% less than other similar engines, and the failure rate is greatly reduced.

  • The cylinder bore adopts a platform mesh honing design, the perfect geometric structure effectively prevents oil leakage, and the use of advanced technologies such as new piston ring components and gasket crimping and molding reduces oil loss.

  • Adopt Holset supercharger with integral wastegate valve, low speed response and strong power.

  • The three-stage fuel filter ensures a balanced level of particle dispersion, protects the main components of the fuel system, and maximizes the life of the engine.
