High performance ABB turbocharger for two-stroke diesel engines

Posted to Maritime Reporter (by on August 14, 2019

The A200-L is the ABB’s latest single stage turbocharger, targeting the newest generations of low speed two-stroke engines operating on both diesel and gas fuels. Building on the success of the A100-L, the outstanding turbocharger for low-speed two-stroke engines of the past decade, ABB’s designers and developers have used the latest thermodynamic and aerodynamic findings to build the same fuel-saving, performance-enhancing high pressure ratios and efficiency into the lighter and more compact package.



A true bundle of turbocharging energy, the A200-L features a massive 30 percent rise in turbocharger volume flow, thus allowing a considerably smaller, lighter turbocharger to be used on virtually every size of two-stroke engine.

And the A200-L’s benefits are not only that the engine builder can achieve a desired level of turbocharger performance with lower weight in less space on the engine. The compactness of the A200-L turbochargers also translates into optimized Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) for the end user, since spare parts are smaller and more economical and the A200-L is easier to remove and dismantle for servicing.

In response to increasing demand for compact and efficient turbocharger technology for marine engines, recently have been launched the new A255-L and A260-L turbochargers optimized for small and medium bore two-stroke diesel and gas engines.

Combined with High-pressure tuning (HPT), application operators running on diesel engines can achieve further increase in efficiency.
