Mitsubishi makes progress on low-pressure EGR

Mitsubishi Heavy Industries (MHI) is working on an IMO Tier III compliant scrubber system that it says will achieve lower equipment and operational costs than high-pressure exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) systems.

As reported last year, MHI had already developed a Tier III compliant EGR that is reported to reduce SOx and particulate matter emissions by 98%, and NOx emissions by 80%. The new low-pressure model is intended to offer cost savings by its position on the downstream side of the exhaust gas economiser.

MHI said the simple structure of the system would ensure a high degree of reliability. The company presented its update to shipowners at a user conference in Imabari, Japan yesterday (18 February).

The 70-strong audience was also presented with a new ‘after-sales service menu’, designed in response to feedback from MHI customers. The menu includes service for UE engines, MET turbochargers and propellers.
