MTU To Upgrade Series 1163 Engines

Posted on November 22, 2010

Tognum subsidiary MTU Friedrichshafen GmbH will upgrade its Series 1163 marine engines for the IMO 2 and IMO 3 emission regulations. All of the engine’s features, such as its power-to-weight ratio and acceleration characteristics, will remain unchanged, the company said.

The two-stage turbocharging technology will also remain, but with some updates, such as the common rail injection system with 1800 bar of injection pressure, the ADEC electronic engine management system, a staple of the Series 2000 and 4000 engines, and a new combustion process, the company said.

MTU will use in-engine technology without any exhaust aftertreatment to meet the IMO 2 regulations, which will come into effect in 2011. The company will meet the IMO 3 regulations, set to take effect in 2016, by using a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions.

The three-cylinder configurations in the 1163 engine family cover a performance range from 4440 to 7400 kW at 1300 r/min.
