MTU's Series 2000 yacht engine is designed to comply with U.S. EPA Tier 3 and IMO Tier 3 emissions regulations.

MTU announced the development of its new Series 2000 yacht engines for compliance with U.S. EPA Tier 3 Recreational and IMO Tier 3 emissions regulations.

The new Series 2000 M96 engines will be able to cover outputs up to 1940 kW and comply with IMO Tier 2 and EPA Tier 3 regulations using in-engine technology. Compliance with IMO Tier 3 will be possible with SCR exhaust gas aftertreatment.

MTU said that, despite the lower exhaust emissions, a reduction in fuel consumption will still be achieved. Acceleration characteristics will also be enhanced, even though these are already optimized on the current engines.

The new engines will be available from 2014. Launch of the IMO Tier 3-compliant units will take place at the start of 2016.
