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.

FLEXIBILITY AND INTEGRATION
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.
