About the First of its Type “L35MC”

About the First of its Type “L35MC”

In 1982, Makita Corporation completed the "Makita-Mitsui-B&W 6L35MC," which was the first of its type. "First of its type" here means that based on blueprints provided by MDT, this engine's form became the first commercial product of its type in the world. In 1973, Makita Corporation entered into a technical assistance agreement with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding, marking a major turning point. In 1976, Makita Corporation completed the "Mitsui-B&W 9K45GF" working in cooperation with Mitsui Engineering & Shipbuilding. Based on that experience, as a sub-licensee of MAN B&W (now MAN Diesel & Turbo), we were able to build, through collective efforts, the "Makita-Mitsui-B&W 6L35MC."

The L35MC holds a worldwide top share among engines of its class, while the model has been changed over the years to meet the needs of the market. During a period of over 30 years, along with this long-selling engine, Makita Corporation has found fresh opportunities in moving from a focus on being a coastal shipping-centric four-stroke diesel engine manufacturer to a company with global partners that produces two-stroke diesel engines.
