Wärtsilä launches new engine designed to meet Chinese emission standard
A new product featuring a combined engine plus selective catalytic reduction (SCR) has been launched by Wärtsilä.
The packaged product is designed to comply with China’s Stage II marine engine emission standard that comes into force in July 2021.
The standard will apply to inland waterway, coastal, river-sea, channel and fishing vessels operating in most rivers and around the country’s major harbour areas.
The solution comprises a Wärtsilä 20 engine fitted with a Wärtsilä NOx Reducer (NOR). NOR is designed to effectively abate emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx), while the incorporated dosing equipment ensures the precise amount of urea is applied to the system, and provides uniform mixing of the urea and ammonia with the exhaust gas.
“This product development is yet another example of Wärtsilä’s leadership position as the marine industry strives for environmentally sustainable shipping. Coastal and inland waterway vessels are particularly affected by environmental legislation, and we are committed to providing the compliance support needed by our customers,” said Östen Lindell, sales director, Wärtsilä Marine Power.
The product is expected to be launched to the market in the third quarter of 2021.
