Volvo Penta IMO Tier III solution

VOLVO PENTA IMO III SOLUTION – OPTIMIZED FOR MARINE

Volvo Penta offers an IMO III engine range for Volvo Penta IPS, Diesel Inboard, Marine Genset and Auxiliary applications. Based on SCR exhaust aftertreatment technology, our robust solution is designed for tough conditions at sea. The system is built to cope with high sulfur diesel fuel and sustain high back pressure, maintaining marine engine efficiency and driveability.

A proven concept

A proven concept

Volvo Penta chose Selective Catalytic Reduction, SCR for exhaust aftertreatment technology to ensure high marine engine power, efficiency and reduced NOx. Our IMO III solution has been adapted to demanding marine conditions. It has been tested extensively at our own facilities totaling 35,000 hours at the launch in 2018, as well as in commercial customer applications. We are leveraging our knowledge of SCR technology within Volvo Penta and the Volvo Group.

An important step

Volvo Penta’s Environmental Director Cecilia Gunnarsson explains how we can go beyond compliance with the IMO Tier III regulations: “SCR technology for NOx reduction, IPS for fuel efficiency and fossil-free fuel to reduce CO2. This combination is an important step towards sustainability.”

Our SOLUTION

IMO Tier III regulations put a focus on NOx limit, because NOx damages eco systems and poses health hazards. The Volvo Penta SCR solution reduces these NOx levels by up to 75%. With SCR technology, Diesel Exhaust Fluid (DEF) is infused into the exhausts and gases are mixed inside the SCR unit. Here, the ammonia content of the DEF/urea transforms the NOx into nitrogen and water. The systems allows for 32 or 40% urea. Watch the video to see a systems overview and how Volvo Penta’s SCR technology works.

FLEXIBILITY AND INTEGRATION

FLEXIBLE MARINE ENGINE INSTALLATION WITH SCR VOLVO PENTA

We made marine engine installations very flexible. A large part of the installations will be repowering, so we prioritized utilization of machine room space. That is why the design of the SCR unit allows for space-efficient configuration possibilities, providing easy installation. The SCR unit features multiple outlets with robust bolt flanges. You also benefit from a fully integrated system. The monitoring is integrated and values are shown on your EVC or MCC displays. The whole solution is optimized for ease of installation, operation, maintenance and service.

THE IMO III RANGE

Volvo Penta offers IMO III for D13 marine diesel engines in Volvo Penta IPS, Diesel Inboard, Marine Genset and Auxiliary applications. During the year 2020, Volvo Penta will extend the IMO III range with the D8 for Diesel Inboard, Marine Genset and Auxiliary applications. Both marine diesel engines are designed to cope with high back pressure and high-sulfur fuel – up to 1,000 ppm. The exhaust aftertreatment system is tailored for a perfect fit. The SCR unit is also a silencer and reduces noise by up to 35 dBA. Volvo Penta has been able to fulfill IMO Tier III targets while maintaining the same low diesel fuel consumption. Thanks to SCR, the marine engine power output remains unaffected.
