With the market launch of its new, two-stage-turbocharged MAN 18V48/60TS engine, MAN Diesel & Turbo is continuing the expansion of its product portfolio with a low-emission, stationary, medium-speed diesel engine. This new engine was designed to offer increased turbocharging efficiency that contributes greatly to the engine’s overall power density. The newly developed HFO-run engine also meets World Bank 2008 guidelines for exhaust emissions at higher efficiency.
The two-stage turbocharged 18V48/60TS engine offers an increased continuous power-output up to 1,200 kW/cyl; NOx emissions of 1480 mg/Nm³ (@15% O2) while operating at an increased output of 1,200 kW/cyl; a very-low specific fuel oil consumption of 171.1 g/kWh while retaining an output of 1,050 kW/cyl; flexible operation between 1,050 and 1,200 kW/cyl that gives operators the choice between low fuel consumption or high power output; and the possibility to retrofit existing 18V48/60 engines to two-stage turbocharged installations.
MAN Diesel & Turbo is the only engine builder that develops and builds its own turbochargers for large diesel engines. Two-stage turbocharging is a modular system whose design enables retrofitting at most MAN Diesel & Turbo 18V48/60 power plants.
