Caloric Ship Ericsson ?

I am no expert on the history of these engines but I have read the first volume of Sier's history : Hot Air, Caloric and Stirling Engines. I do not recall an engine larger than the engine of the Caloric Ship Ericsson, four cylinders of 168 inches in diameter with a stroke of 6 feet.

Although big, Ericsson's motor wasn't/isn't the most powerful, there are portable generator units available with 200hp motors.

The power of the engine aboard the "Ericsson" was said to be about 600hp.
