Selective catalytic reduction is the engine industry’s ready-to-fit panacea technology for strict emissions limits like IMO Tier III in Emission Control Areas (ECAs). ABC is vigorously pursuing exhaust gas recirculation as an alternative which, though it requires more design and development work from the manufacturer, enables the engine to remain a single piece of equipment, with all its major systems integral to its architecture.

Customer expectations

Customer expectations for engine based systems are clearly set. The engine has to meet the limits set out by a range of emissions legislations, and with the increasing prices of traditional liquid fuels, lowest possible fuel consumption is demanded. But together with these basic requirements, it is also expected that an engine is compact, so that payload is maximised. Furthermore, there is a strong preference that all engine systems are integrated, so that there is no need for separately installed components or aftertreatment on board...

Notes

Thanks

The authors wish to thank the Flemish agency for Innovation by Science and Technology (IWT Vlaanderen) for financially supporting this work. Many thanks go also to all the people inside, but also outside ABC, who worked on this project. We have seen an enthusiastic team which is motivated and worked with competence to make a successful new D36 engine series.
