The air outlet silencer is designed to help meet reductions in engine noise standards under IMO SOLAS regulations.

“With up to a 5 dB reduction in noise emissions, the noise level perceived by a human ear is almost reduced by half, thus making a considerable contribution to the noise level limit set by the IMO SOLAS regulations, said Joachim Bremer, head of product line, low speed, ABB Turbocharging.

ABB said the it was the first product available to the market to reduce noise emissions for turbochargers on low-speed marine engines.

“The development of the air outlet silencer underlines our focus on the safe operation of our turbocharging products, and on reducing environmental pollution. In creating a quieter working environment for seafarers, we are bringing to our customers the ABB Group commitment to occupational health and safety,” Bremer added.
