- Equipment & technology
MTU will be presenting its propulsion and systems portfolio for yachts, merchant vessels and navy ships at the international maritime trade fair SMM from September 9-12, 2014.
MTU, the core company of the Rolls-Royce Power Systems AG, will be showing innovative concepts at Stand 305 in Hall A3 in response to the IMO Tier III emission standard which is due to come into force in 2016 .
“MTU is well-prepared for IMO Tier III, be it with SCR exhaust aftertreatment systems for diesel engines or with gas engines,” explains Dr. Michael Haidinger, Chief Sales Officer at Rolls-Royce Power Systems.
In an animated presentation, MTU will also be demonstrating the latest fast-running Series 4000 gas engine based on its trusted 4000 M63 diesel engine which is widely used in working vessels. The first field-trial engine is scheduled to go into service in 2016 in a new environmentally-compatible tugboat. MTU’s natural-gas marine engine is due to be launched on the market in 2018.
As a one-stop system supplier MTU will also be showcasing variable-speed gensets for yacht and merchant fleet applications, as well as a new unit for civil and naval applications based on the Series 1600 6-cylinder in-line engine which is certified as IMO Tier II and EPA Tier 3 compliant. The unit sets new standards in cutting overall running costs with outstandingly long maintenance intervals and a specific fuel consumption of less than 205 g/kWh at full continuous power.
MTU will be providing information about its current range of IMO Tier II certified engines – Series 2000, 4000 and 8000, and also the 396 and 1163 with up to 10.000 kW – used in tugboats and offshore vessels, yachts, frigates and coastguard ships.
