MTU readies for Tier III emissions standards

MTU readies for Tier III emissions standards
MTU will be presenting innovative propulsion concepts at SMM that offer selective catalytic reduction (SCR) of NOx emissions or otherwise comply with the IMO Tier III standard due to come into force in 2016.

MTU diesel engine solutions for Tier III basically comprise integrated MTU drive and SCR systems that are designed to need little space and offer optimum power-to-weight ratio. Systems can be tailor made for specific applications with individualised maintenance intervals.

The company will also be demonstrating an animation of its latest fast-running Series 4000 gas engine based on its established 4000 M63 diesel engine that is widely used in workboats. The first field-trial engine is scheduled to go into service in 2016 in a new environmentally friendly tugboat, and the engine is due to be launched on the market in 2018.

Delivering some 2,000kW, the 16-cylinder version of the new gas engine (pictured) will meet Tier III emission standards without resorting to exhaust aftertreatment.

“MTU is well prepared for IMO Tier III, be it with SCR exhaust aftertreatment systems for diesel engines or with gas engines,” said Michael Haidinger of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, parent company of MTU.
