MAN Diesel & Turbo is adding SCR technology to the engines for Petrofac’s new deepwater construction vessel

MAN Diesel & Turbo reports that a deepwater derrick-lay vessel ordered by Petrofac will be supplied with SCR systems on each of its six 16V32/44CR engines.

The 215.9m long ‘Petrofac JDS 6000’ ship was ordered in January 2014 from the ZPMC yard in China. The ship is to Petrofac’s own design, for which MAN engines were specified. Now, MAN Diesel & Turbo is to supply SCR systems for each engine, allowing the ship to comply with the forthcoming IMO Tier III emissions limits.

MAN has also entered into a 12-year service contract with Petrofac, which will involve management, maintenance and monitoring of the six engines, each providing 9,600kW. The ship is scheduled for delivery in 2016, and is expected to be available for offshore construction and installation duties in early 2017.

MAN Diesel & Turbo claims to be the first company to successfully make four-stroke marine engines IMO Tier III-compliant, based on a fully modular SCR-kit that covers the entire MAN Diesel & Turbo four-stroke engine portfolio. The first system has been trialled at sea onboard the DFDS ro-ro ship Petunia Seaways and has been certified by DNV GL as complying with Tier II requirements. Dr Daniel Struckmeier, MAN senior project manager said: "For the last 8,800 hours, this particular engine aboard the Petunia Seaways has consistently met Tier III NOx limits under real-life operating conditions and in full accordance with the rules."
