MAN Brings Latest Tech to Marintec
MAN Diesel & Turbo has brought its new 45/60CR and ME-LGI engines, as well as its innovative HP-SCR emissions reduction technology to Marintec 2017, which is being held this week in Shanghai.
MAN recently revealed its new flagship engine, the successor to its 48/60CR engine in the company’s 4x line of high-performance diesel engines. The MAN 45/60CR marine diesel engine will initially be available as 12V and 14V versions that boast power outputs, of 15,600 and 18,200 kW respectively, with inline versions following at a later stage.
Wayne Jones, Chief Sales Officer of MAN Diesel & Turbo, said, “The new engine combines the best features of the current 48/60CR, such as MAN’s common-rail system with ECOMAP capability, and adds new technologies such as two-stage turbocharging for an unrivaled Specific Fuel Oil Consumption. The resultant reduction in operating expenses and positive environmental impact are sure to attract strong market interest.”
MAN Diesel & Turbo is also using Marintec as an opportunity to bring attention to its new high-pressure Selective Catalytic Reduction system. MAN SCR-HP is available for two-stroke engines of all bore sizes and reduces – through internal catalytic reaction – NOx exhaust emissions to IMO Tier III limits. With specially developed honeycombs and honeycomb materials, as well as an integrated mixing unit, the overall size of the reactor has been drastically reduced compared to typical market designs and its medium-speed counterpart. Delivery is first expected from the beginning of 2018.
Bjarne Foldager, Vice President MAN Diesel & Turbo and Head of Sales & Promotion Two-Stroke Business, said, “The development of our new SCR is an important step on the path to a more sustainable future of shipping and global trade. At the same time it offers additional choices to ship owners worldwide, who can now choose from all NOx reduction technologies and select the optimal solution for their MAN Diesel & Turbo two-stroke engines.”
The MAN B&W ME-LGI dual-fuel engine expands MAN Diesel & Turbo’s dual-fuel portfolio, enabling the use of more sustainable, low-flash-point fuels such as methanol, ethanol, dimethyl-ether (DME) and Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG).
With the designation LGI (liquid gas injection), all existing MAN B&W ME/ME-C/ME-B engines are available for operation on low flashpoint liquid (LFL) fuels like methanol, ethanol, LPG and DME. The engines are operated as dual-fuel engines with high-pressure injection. These engines have the same fuel consumption as similar diesel engines, and the same tuning methods can be applied.
