The Wärtsil RT-flex96C is a low-speed, two-stroke turbo diesel engine from the Finnish manufacturer Wärtsil. This mega-power station weighs over 2,300 tons and is designed for large container ships running on heavy fuel oil, the giant engine is 14 feet high, 27 feet long.

This monstrous engine has an insane output of 80,089 kW, which is powerful enough to move mountains. It uses up to 1,660 gallons of heavy fuel oil per hour and if you try to compare that to the size of a small building.
