MAN Diesel and Turbo has reached a major milestone after it received award in principle for its SCR system for the entire medium-speed engine portfolio fulfilling IMO Tier III regulations by the China Classification Society (CSS).

Testing took place on a MAN 8L21/31 auxiliary engine with an integrated SCR system, but the certification applies to the entire medium-speed engine portfolio.

“This milestone is one of three agreed major steps in a long-term relationship with CCS. The first step has been accomplished after issuance of the first IMO Tier III EIAPP certificate for the 21/31 engine group in February this year,” said Dr Daniel Struckmeier, head of emission 2016, senior project manager, MAN Diesel & Turbo. “Today’s award finalised the second step, which includes the certification of the MAN Diesel & Turbo-SCR modelling tool, covering the MAN Diesel & Turbo engine portfolio from 5L16/24 to 18V48/60.”

“From today on, every customer can profit from the easy and effective way of IMO TIER III certification for all MDT four-stroke engines. The final step, planned for autumn of this year, will incorporate the issuance of a general approval of our entire engine portfolio based on the afore-mentioned MAN Diesel & Turbo SCR modelling tool,” he added.

The MAN-built engine is bound for a DFDS Seaways ro-ro vessel, Petunia Seaways.
