Volvo Penta D13

Volvo Penta D13 has now further been developed to meet EPA Tier 3 – the new marine environmental emission standard. The new version of D13 offers improved environmental properties with basically unchanged low-fuel consumption.

The D13 is a diesel engine that has been developed within the Volvo Group. According to the manufacturer, it is currently in operation in more than 450,000 heavy-duty applications, including buses, trucks and construction equipment. At Volvo Penta, this engine is further developed for use in industrial applications for both off-road and electricity production and in unique custom marine applications.

The full range of Volvo Penta D13 marine engines is now upgraded to meet the requirements of EPA Tier 3, which will take effect from 1 Jan. 2014. EPA Tier 3 involves a 40 percent reduction in particulate matter in the exhaust gases and a 20 percent reduction in NOx and hydrocarbon.

The upgrading of the environmental characteristics will neither change the performance, nor the fuel efficiency. Nor does it imply any changes in terms of design, size or installation − in these respects there will be no difference to the boat builder, owner or operator.

Volvo Penta D13 is available both as a propulsion engine (D13 MH) or as a marine genset (D13 MG) equipped with different cooling systems as an option.
