MAN 175D SCR GAINS TIER III TYPE APPROVAL

Tuesday, February 12, 2019  (Comments: 1)

MAN Energy Solutions has announced that its compact MAN 175D SCR system recently successfully completed its final Type Approval Test, and has subsequently been awarded IMO Tier III certification by all major classification societies.

Since the beginning of its development, the company has intensively tested the MAN 175D SCR system at its Frederikshavn, Denmark test centre. During this process, the SCR technology has accrued more than 5,000 operating hours, both in Frederikshavn and aboard an operative offshore vessel where MAN Energy Solutions reports that the technology performed efficiently and reliably. The SCR system was released for serial production in October 2018, and won its first order during January 2019.

Daniel Struckmeier, Head of Exhaust Aftertreatment, MAN Energy Solutions, said: “In order to deliver a very compact and cost-effective design, we have based the MAN 175D SCR system on our most cutting-edge technology. A great strength is its flexible arrangement and compactness that optimise the space typically available in confined engine-rooms.”

Due to its IMO NOx Scheme A certification procedure the system can be installed directly without further on-board confirmation tests. MAN Energy Solutions confirms that the type approval covers not only the 12V175D in all its released applications, but also the 16-cylinder and 20-cylinder versions, which will be launched in the near future employing identical SCR components to those used in the 12-cylinder system.
