Powering up [IDEX17D2]

19 February 2017

Rolls-Royce Power Systems is presenting the latest in its MTU-branded line of marine propulsion solutions at IDEX 2017.

The company will be unveiling a model of its new Series 8000 16V engine, which delivers outputs of up to 8,000kW and expands MTU’s portfolio not only for naval applications, but in the yacht and ferry segment too. The Series 8000 unit is a highly renowned engine equipped with common rail fuel injection and electronic engine management for low overall running costs, high power density, and unlimited low-load operation – a significant advantage for governmental vessels.

Another showpiece is a model of Rolls-Royce’s evolved MTU-brand Series 4000 diesel engine compliant with the IMO III and EPA Tier 4 emissions standards. This version, the 4000 M05, embodies innovations in turbocharging, combustion and fuel injection, as well as a newly developed selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system, to enable it to meet stringent emissions rules. This integrated solution from MTU for propulsion and SCR exhaust after-treatment provides the customer with a configuration that is optimally tuned to the IMO Tier III and EPA Tier 4 standards. Furthermore, says Rolls-Royce, the system is flexible, demands little space, and boasts an excellent power-to-weight ratio.
