Scania introduces a new range of marine propulsion units consisting of engine, transmission and type-approved instrumentation at the International Workboat Show in New Orleans, Louisiana. The 13-liter marine engines range from 400 hp for continuous use up to 750 hp for patrol craft use. The Scania marine engine solution, consisting of a new 13-liter marine engine is the first in a new line of engines for propulsion and auxiliary use designed for maximum reliability and durability, as well as low operating cost. Torque ratings have been increased on the new range, making it easier to maintain favorable operating speeds in high sea or with a heavy load. Single-circuit keel cooling is used to simplify installation and reduce cost. The service life of pistons and liners is enhanced by Scania saver ring, a ring placed at the top of the cylinder liner to reduce coke deposits and engine wear. For marine auxiliary use, the Scania 13-liter engine is designed to handle large step- load variations with short recovery time. The top version achieves its top output of 426 kW at 1,800 r/min. Output has been increased, yet exhaust emissions are low. The engine also features Scania EMS, an in-house developed engine management system that is outstandingly flexible when it comes to tailoring engine performance to individual customer applications.The new 13-liter marine engines complies with emission standards IMO II, EU Stage IIIA and US Tier 2.
1,000 hp V8 Engine Launched in New Orleans Building on Scania’s new global engine platform is the 16-liter marine V8, delivering up to 1,000 hp and 2,460 Ib./ft. for patrol craft applications, a compact power source that leverages technology and architecture with Scania’s truck and bus engines. “The new 16 liter engine has gone up in horsepower for each duty cycle we offer, which means that we can approach larger vessels,” said Mikael Lindner, President, Scania U.S.A
