Caterpillar Marine has developed new technology solutions for European Union (EU) inland waterway (IWW) vessels, designed to comply with the next generation of regulatory emissions required for EU IWW applications.

The solutions will be available from 2020 for various power ranges: for engines with less than 130 bkW, 130 to 300 bkW, and 300 to 1350 bkW.

“As the market leader, we fully support and are committed to meeting the most challenging emissions regulations in the marine industry,” said Jason Spear, business development manager for Caterpillar Marine. “Through continuous innovation, we strive to provide marine power solutions that employ advanced technologies that enable efficient combustion and the cleanest emissions while maintaining the Caterpillar reputation of the most durable and reliable products on the market.”

“Caterpillar is committed to the development of marine products for the EU IWW segment with Stage V certification by leveraging the well-proven legacy of Caterpillar Marine products,” said Travis Petry-Johnson, product strategy manager for Caterpillar Marine.

These new solutions will leverage the technologies of Caterpillar’s Marine EPA and IMO products and aim to offer quality and durability for customers.

The new EU IWW portfolio is being developed to provide best in class operational cost benefits to customers.

Caterpillar told The Motorship that more details about the technology would be released later this year.
