Junkers SHK108

HK Engine for Ship Applications

Junkers SHK108 Ship Engine Flyer

While the HK-Series were designed for general applications, special adaptions were made for the use as a ship engine. These modified HK-engines were designated as SHK-Series. The small HK65 engine was modified into the SHK65 with one, two or three cylinders. The SHK108 was a special designed ship engine for larger river boats. It was available in one to four cylinder versions.

In 1931 the license rights for the HK-Series were transfered to the Gesellschaft fuer Junkers Dieselkraftmaschinen at Chemnitz. The production of HK-Engines continued after the end of WWII, when the Gesellschaft fuer Junkers Dieselkraftmaschinen became VEB Dieselkraftmaschinenwerk Karl-Marx-Stadt.
