Naturaly I will be very interested to read of your geared wheel reduction, as I understood your earlier 12x36 build to be direct drive.  Your selection of boiler capacity together with anciliries will be similar to the original build, but will be interesting and exciting to see 

{Saito nominate 2 Bar WP for their engines, however many appear to operate without issue at 3.5 Bar, but even at this pressure we are still talking of ~~150 degrees the condensate cold start issue maintains - the proposed heat radiator can only depend on the heat load/mass able to be pumped & transferred to the cylinders + valve bodies}

Looking forward to seeing your new engine plant progress
