Bergen KV-G4.2
The latest lean-burn K-gas engine

Cost-efficiency:
High electrical efficiency will
reduce fuel cost. Together
with the advantage of the
medium speed engine
concept this results in low
life-cycle cost.
Reliability:
The KV-series of lean-burn
gas engines are based on a
marine design with an
