By Roberta Prandi24 August 2022
Rolls-Royce will present new mtu marine solutions at the SMM 2022 show , including diesel engines with exhaust gas aftertreatment, gas engines to be operated with sustainable fuels, hybrid systems, methanol engines, and fuel cell systems. The company will also be exhibiting its new range of mtu NautIQ marine automation products.
Rolls-Royce announced in 2021, as part of its ‘Net Zero at Power Systems’ sustainability program, that it would realign its product portfolio so that by 2030, sustainable fuels and new mtu technologies can achieve greenhouse gas emissions reduction of 35% compared to 2019.
“Since the last SMM in 2018, we have completely realigned our marine portfolio to actively support our customers on their journey to carbon neutrality,” said Denise Kurtulus, vice president Global Marine at Rolls-Royce’s Power Systems business.
In the meantime, the company is already working on methanol engines and fuel cell systems for marine applications and is developing electrolysers to produce green hydrogen. According to a clear roadmap, marine diesel propulsion systems will gradually be approved for EN15940 sustainable fuels, such as HVO (hydrogenated vegetable oil), from the fourth quarter of 2022.
Rolls-Royce will exhibit at SMM 2022 in Hall A3, booth 307.
