MAN Diesel & Turbo showcases high-speed engine at Marintec marine exhibition
MAN Diesel & Turbo used its presence at the Marintec 2015 marine exhibition in Shanghai to launch its 175D high-speed engine in China, the company said in its press release. Ranked as one of the most important marine industry events in China, and attended by hundreds of international companies, Marintec was an evident choice as showcase for the engine.
Originally launched in Europe towards the end of 2014, MAN Diesel & Turbo states that the 175D’s Chinese release was in great part due to local requests for a large, high-speed engine.
The MAN 175D scores highly in terms of eco-friendliness. Its compact and modular exhaust-gas after-treatment system uses the selective catalytic reduction (SCR) method and is based on the MAN Ad Blue® technology that has undergone many thousands of hours of testing.
The engine therefore already satisfies the strict IMO Tier III environmental standards before it hits the market.
The 175D’s straightforward design also makes it quick and uncomplicated for customers to initially start up the engine and carry out maintenance work.
Finally, MAN Diesel & Turbo has also geared the MAN 175D as part of a high-speed propulsion package with a gearbox as well as MAN propellers and shafts in order to optimise efficiency.
