At the Nor-Shipping international maritime exhibition in Oslo from May 30 to June 2, MTU Friedrichshafen, a business of Rolls-Royce Power Systems, will be presenting its propulsion and systems portfolio, primarily for offshore supply vessels, workboats and ferries. This will include Series 2000, 4000 and 8000 propulsion engines in an output range from 400 to 10,000 kilowatts (kW), hybrid propulsion solutions and diesel electric propulsion systems and diesel gensets for the supply of onboard power.

New MTU gas engine for workboats

In 2018 Rolls-Royce is set to deliver the first certified MTU gas engines for commercial marine applications.

The new 16-cylinder gas engine will be available with a power range extending from 1,500 to 2,000 kW. This it to be followed by an 8-cylinder version with a 750 to 1,000 kW power range.

MTU says the gas engine is ideally suited for use as the main propulsion in tug boats, ferries, push boats and special purpose vessels, such as research boats, due to its "dynamic acceleration behaviour, its environmental compatibility, reliability and cost-effective operation".

"The combustion concept provides an efficient use of fuel and ensures that IMO III exhaust emission standards are met without the need for additional exhaust gas aftertreatment," MTU notes.

To meet EPA Tier 4 regulations, a compact oxidation catalyst is mounted on the engine. Due to the use of double-walled gas supply lines, the engine room can be designed in much the same way as for a diesel system, MTU says.

MTU will be exhibiting on Stand E03-15, together with Rolls-Royce and the local distributor Bertel O. Steen.

New diesel engine version of the Series 4000 engine for IMO III and EPA Tier 4

MTU will be showcasing its advanced-design Series 4000 diesel engine, which is said to meet IMO III and EA Tier 4 emission regulations using a variety of technical advances incorporated in the turbocharger system, the combustion process and the fuel injection system, in addition to a new selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system developed by MTU.

The integrated solution for IMO Tier III and EPA Tier 4 consists of MTU's propulsion system and an SCR exhaust gas aftertreatment system, which, MTU says, is designed to provide the customer with an "optimally matched system".
