This Class is tested for many years. After this period, the serie was build between 1971 and 1979. In total, 398 engines were build. The machines were first fitted with MAN-motors with a power of 1.840 (2.500 HP) and a weight of 78 ton. Later series of the Class 218 were fitted with MAN 12 V 956 TB 11 motors or the well known Pielstick 16 PA 4V 200 motors. So the Class 218 can be split out in many different variants.
