Gas-engined tug: Rendering MTU

The Rolls-Royce brand MTU is showing its concepts at the current SMM, Hamburg, 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 is demonstrating the latest high-speed 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. Delivering some 2,000 kW, the 16-cylinder version of the engine meets IMO Tier III emission standards without resorting to exhaust aftertreatment.

MTU will also be presenting 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.

That apart, this enormously versatile engine, says MTU, also meets classification rules for commercial applications and other requirements for demanding civil and military applications including noise, shock and magnetic signatures.
