Now we know how the biggest engine in the world looks like

If you ever wondered how the larger engine in the world looks like, now time has come to see it. The Finish engineers from Wartsila managed to create it.
It has the height of a four-story building and it's able to deliver, and now hold on: 109,000 horsepower at 102 rpm and 7,600,000 Nm of torque. The engine has a 14-cylinder common-rail diesel unit that has 13.4 m in height and 27.4 m in length. As far a weight, you should know it has 2,300 tons and the displacement is 1,820-liter.
You can find it as being the one that gives power to the biggest transport ships in the world, called the Emma Maersk. The top speed the ship can reach is 31 nautical miles / hour. Just to compare, you should know that a normal ship usually can reach 18-20 nautical miles / hour.
It has 170.000 tons as weight and is actually 50 % larger than the famous Titanic. When it comes to the fuel consumption it's important to know that it consumes 271.32 liters / minute.
