Heavy Commercial Vehicle Engine

Heavy Commercial Vehicle Engine

BMC Power is established with a very critical purpose in both national and international scale with the aim of fulfilling a domestic and national engine need in terms of production and design; which is in Turkey’s 2023 vision and not only vital for our country that has a very high level of importance in global arena in terms of its geopolitical and strategic position, and contiguous countries but also for our allies. With its great mission and competent staff members in the field, BMC Power completed the first prototype production of the 6- cylinder 430 kW, 12.8L cylinder volume, 600 horsepower heavy vehicle engine which started to be designed in February 2017, and made it ready for testing on June 23, 2018 at BMC Izmir Facility. The engine designed and developed by %100 Turkish engineers with domestic and national resources projected to be used in military applications such as wheeled/tracked tactical and road vehicles for logistic purposes as well as for heavy commercial vehicles. And the engine that can generate maximum torque up to 2700 Nm, will also be possible to be used for hybrid power applications in the future. The engine’s 3D design and engineering calculations are completed, 1-dimensional performance and 3-dimensional flow analysis were run, analytical methods and the Finite Element Analysis with durability simulations were also performed. The first cranking of the engine which was designed by BMC Power’s completely domestic and national talented engineers and precious contributions of universities, industrialists, engineering companies and experts, was successfully actualized on July 5th, 2018 at Istanbul Technical University Automotive Technologies Research and Development Centre (OTAM) Laboratories. After the production of prototype samples, the function and lifespan tests along with the improvement processes are being continued to be developed in ITU OTAM and TUBITAK Test Laboratories. Within the scope of the project; engine calibration, software development, design verification and product validation, preparation for mass production and trials for preliminary mass production will be performed.
