First Order For GE Marine Engine

Eliminates need for SCR; power increased

Posted on December 12, 2013

GE Transportation announced the first sale of its 12V250 marine diesel engine to Oceaneering, a global oilfield provider of engineered services and products.

The 12V250 meets GE Ecomagination standards and is designed to meet EPA Tier 4i and IMO Tier 3 emissions requirements. GE said its technology eliminates the need for a selective catalytic reduction system (SCR) exhaust aftertreatment, reducing emissions by 50%. The non-urea solution simplifies infrastructure and frees up valuable cargo space, the company said.

GE said its non-SCR solution is based on the L250 and V250 engine technology and requires no supplemental equipment or fluids.

The 12V250 engine offers increased power of 3150 kW at 900 r/min and 3500 kW at 1000 r/min, while maintaining low life-cycle cost, reliability and fuel efficiency.

Oceaneering will utilize five GE 12V250 marine diesel engines as part of the gen-sets to power its new subsea support vessel, model MT6022. GE’s distributor Cummins Mid-South Llc. will integrate the GE engines and deliver them to vessel constructor BAE Systems, a provider of ship repair, maintenance, modernization, conversion, overhaul and ship construction.
