Scania will launch two new IMO Tier III-compliant engines at Seawork in June.

Both power units – a six-cylinder, 13-litre DI13M and a V8 16-litre DI16M – feature Scania's XPI injection system and use selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to meet the IMO Tier III standard. The injection system reduces emissions of nitrous oxides by more than 70% and the engines can also be run on hydrotreated vegetable oil.

Preparing for the future

"While the IMO Tier III standard is already in force in the North American and US Caribbean Sea areas, all new ships constructed on or after 1 January 2021 destined to operate in European waters will also require IMO Tier III-compliant engines," said David Bamber, general manager of Scania Engines.

"The same holds true for any ships replacing an engine with a non-identical engine or installing an additional engine. In bringing its IMO Tier III engines to market two years ahead of the standard becoming mandatory, Scania is helping the industry plan and prepare for the transition as operators focus more and more on sustainability."

Scania produces marine engines in the power range 162-846kW (220 - 1,150hp). The company's products combine low revs with high torque and are suited to a wide range of propulsion and ancillary applications, including fishing vessels, ferries, fast patrol boats and survey ships.
