MAN-B&W have opened a museum dedicated to diesel engine technology in the HC Orsted power station Copenhagen including B&W first engine of 1904.
A significant exhibit is a DM884Ws-150 double acting two stroke diesel engine.
It was the largest diesel engine in the world for 30 years. When coupled to a 15000kW generator it helped supply power to the city.
Entry to the museum is free and it is opened dailyfrom 10.00 to 16.00 hrs
Of special interest is that the engine will be started at 11.00 hrs on the first Sunday of each month. - "so that visitors can enjoy the full sensory experience of her in action".
