Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe presents its IMO Tier III solution to the market

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V. (MTEE) presents a new engine after-treatment solution to comply with the IMO Tier III regulations. It combines its proven mechanical engines with a certified Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system. The SCR system is fully optimized and tested on cost-efficiency, quality requirements and meets the IMO Tier III environmental regulations.

“With this new solution we can offer our customers a cleaner auxiliary generator and propulsion system, compliant with the latest regulations and according to Mitsubishi standards.” says Ron Slenders, MTEE’s Product Manager for Marine.

The first IMO Tier III certified product to be released with an after-treatment system is the S12R-MPTAW, a 12-cylinder auxiliary engine that is used in a wide range of marine applications such as ferries and tankers. The engine has an output of 1120 kW at 1500 rpm and 1154 and 1270 kW at 1800 rpm and is also available as a Mitsubishi Generator Set for marine. The next model that is now being tested and developed is the S12A2-MPTAW for propulsion (727 to 818 kW) and auxiliary generator (709 to 828 kW) application.

The SCR system is developed and customized to the specific engine and operations. This is done in close collaboration between MTEE engineering team, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Engine Turbocharger Ltd. (MHIET), the global headquarter for Engine and Generator Sets of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Group, and the SCR partner; GESAB. GESAB, based in Sweden, is an experienced partner offering SCR systems to the marine market for more than 10 years. The product quality, scalability and compatibility with MTEE’s full engine and generator set lineup, were key considerations in the selection process.

Next to the IMO emission tests and certification, extensive testing has taken place in-house to guarantee MHIET’s high-quality standards of the engine and after-treatment system. This to identify and solve risks at the earliest possible stage and ensure the quality of the system even under tough environmental and system conditions. The urea use is balanced for the exhaust gas to meet the IMO Tier III regulations, limit the ammonia slip and be highly cost-efficient. As the lineup is based on the IMO Tier II engines, it is possible to switch off the SCR system outside of the emission control areas to make the operations more economical.

The SCR system exists out of the SCR reactor, injection unit, dosing unit and soot blower system. The SCR reactor is available in a horizontal and vertical setup and has multiple connection points to create flexibility of installation. The full system is tested and certified in-house, ensuring a swift installation with no further certification requirements for the IMO Tier III regulations at the shipyard.

From January 2021, IMO Tier III regulations for commercial vessels with a total output of more than 130 kW has come into force. The new regulation prescribes an average NOx reduction of 75% compared to the IMO Tier II levels for vessels operating in the North Sea and Baltic Sea Emission Control Areas.

MTEE at the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit 2017 in London

Since 2008, the Bloomberg New Energy Finance Summit (BNEF) has served as a forum for the discussion of energy issues by bringing together old and new key players who are involved in the energy industry. With nearly 2000 key decision makers from the business, finance and policy communities being present at the BNEF every year, it contributes to setting the agenda of new energy policies and to shape the general opinion on new energy topics.

We are therefore proud to be represented at the BNEF 2017. Our General Manager of the Turbo Division, Bas Bonnier, will participate in a panel debate on Tuesday the 19th of September with the topic “Automotive futures and diverging energy assumptions”. Together with spokespeople from companies such as BP oil mobility, Renault EV business unit and Chargepoint, Bas Bonnier will discuss the future of automotive and what role battery technology advances, range extenders and public charging infrastructure will play in the transition towards electrification.

Turbocharging has downsized the best engines of today

For the first time in 23 years there is no V8 engine on the list of Ward’s Auto’s 10 best engines, writes Ward’s auto; http://wardsauto.com/2017/seven-turbos-three-hybrids-share-wards-10-best-engines-honors.

Due to the progress of turbocharging technology, many 6 cylinder engines create enough horsepower and torque to substitute the 8 cylinder engines, writes Ward’s auto, which have slowly decreased in the past years. The same trend can be seen from 6 to 4 cylinder engines, and 4 cylinder engines are also dominating the market as well as Ward’s list of best engines. In fact, besides from 2 hybrid engines on the list, all other 8 best awarded engines are turbocharged, including 1 hybrid.

Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine Europe B.V. expect this trend to only continue further in the coming future, where more hybrid engines also will become turbocharged.

Beware of Counterfeits of Mitsubishi Turbocharger

September 2016 – Almere, The Netherlands

MHI values and would like to thank its customers who purchase Mitsubishi Turbochargers and products incorporating them.

It has come to the attention of MHI that counterfeit turbochargers made to look like they were manufactured by MHI, which is not the case, are being circulated in China and other countries.

These counterfeits are not genuine MHI products, are not covered by MHI’s warranties and have not been made subject to MHI’s strict quality control, so for the safety of our customers, we ask that you please purchase genuine MHI products.

Please understand that MHI cannot accept any responsibility or liability whatsoever for any accident or breakdown resulting from the use of counterfeit third party products or their malfunctions. Please also understand that we cannot exchange counterfeits for genuine MHI products, nor can we repair or otherwise service such non-genuine third party products. We advise you to check the authenticity of any MHI turbochargers that are not purchased through your local MHI dealer. If you are in any doubt as to whether an turbocharger branded or sold as Mitsubishi turbocharger is a genuine Mitsubishi turbocharger supported by the MHI group, please contact your local MHI dealer.

We look forward to your continued use of genuine MHI products.

For inquiries in relation to this matter, please contact us here.
