MTU showcases the new Series 1600 marine genset at DIMDEX 2014
 
At DIMDEX, the exhibition for maritime defense, taking place in Quatar from 25 to 27 March (booth H4-50) Rolls-Royce Power Systems unveils its new marine genset carrying the MTU brand. The genset is based on a 6-cylinder Series 1600 inline engine delivering up to 323 kW output and compliant with IMO Tier II and EPA Tier 3 regulations. The marine engine version is configured for on-board power generation and is derived from the highly robust and cost-efficient Series 1600 unit used for power generation on land.

With maintenance intervals considerably longer than average and specific fuel consumption under 205 g/kWh at full continuous power, the genset sets a new standard in terms of low overall running costs. The genset engine is also highly versatile, and meets not only classification society regulations in the commercial segment, but also the strict demands of civil and military applications with respect to acoustics, shock and magnetic signature. At MTU, Series 1600 engines run through marine engine production processes to enable them also to meet the advanced logistic requirements (ILS) that prevail in the naval and coast guard segment worldwide.

At the exhibition, MTU also informs visitors about its latest IMO Tier II-compliant 2000, 4000 and 8000 units and its Series 396 and 1163 engines, whose range of applications includes frigates, corvettes, coast guard vessels, patrol boats, amphibious landing craft and other special-purpose vessels worldwide. MTU Series 8000 engines cover power outputs up to 10,000 Kilowatts and the 20-cylinder version is the top seller in its performance class for the propulsion of naval vessels. With their compact design and high power density, these MTU engines are also suitable for re-powering older vessels in which engine room space is very limited.

MTU's propulsion portfolio is completed by its gas turbine which delivers outputs up to 35,320 kW to facilitate top propulsion speeds in combination with diesel engines. MTU charging units also supply U-boats with the power they require. Its advanced-technology Series 4000 diesel genset for U-boats with 1300 kW output is currently being developed and is to be launched in 2016. This genset will allow the potential offered by li-ion battery technology to be exploited to the full, resulting in significantly shorter load cycles and a lower indiscretion rate. Fuel consumption in relation to Series 396 units has been substantially reduced, allowing the submarine a much bigger range with the same tank size. The genset can also be run in optimized emissions and acoustics mode so that IMO Tier II emissions specifications are met in surface operation.
