    Your truck? Skip that, with this engine, you can make this saying false (seen / heard among car racers):
    You can live in your car, but you can't race your house.

    sweet!

    I wonder how these engines are moved to and into the ship? I used to work for a company called American Hoist & Derrick, based in St. Paul, MN (now defunct or merged into other companies - I'm not certain which). The largest crane they ever built had a maximum 2,700 ton lift capacity and was ship mounted (built in Bay City, MI, I think); the largest land based crane they ever built had an 800 ton maximum lift capacity (a working model was made of this - I would have given nearly anything to have owned it at the time). Of course, these numbers are from over 20 years ago and are likely to have been exceeded.

    Probably, the engine is taken apart and reassembled in the ship.

    Alan, I bet they transport it to the place it goes, and then build the ship around it.

    That being said, Hyundai has some tremendous shipbuilding capabilities; they or others may have the capabilities to lift this behemoth without too much trouble...

    Hyundai's strongest crane has a capacity of 1500 Tons, so even Hyundai would have to install this engine in at least two pieces. Interesting question, an engine is not something that you would be able to easily make modular. I'm sure there are engineers that are working on a crane that would be able to lift this in one piece.

    Talk about some Torque. Did you guys see how much fuel it consumes? I wonder what it cost to buy one and then maintain it.

    I thought turbines were the way to go for large ships? More power per lb., smaller, and very efficient.
