French engine company Moteurs Baudouin has upgraded its small commercial marine offering with the addition of an integrated SCR system, enabling it to meet IMO Tier III and EPA 4 NOx emission standards. The new Advanced 12M26.3 engine will be exhibited by UK and Ireland distributor Proteum at the forthcoming Seawork 2019 exhibition.

The heavy duty, four stroke electronic diesel is claimed to be the most compact and competitively priced IMO III EPA IV engine in this sector. This is due to its modular design and integrated Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) system, which allows greater installation flexibility. The redesigned 12M26.3 with SCR offers superior fuel economy and no loss of power; with low speed torque for better manoeuvrability and increased acceleration, while an up to 2% reduction in fuel consumption delivers an extended range. The M26.3 with SCR electronic range is available in  power ratings from 331kW (450hp) to1214 kW (1650hp).

“In the M26.3 range Baudouin has addressed the challenges posed by the latest IMO and EPA standards to achieve cleaner shipping by delivering a practical, affordable and fully compliant propulsion system”, said Neil Taylor, Head of Sales for Proteum. 

Moteurs Baudouin provides engines for the commercial marine, fishing and shipping sectors. They are purpose designed for the marine industry and offer a wide power rating range combined with competitive fuel consumption, with short delivery times.
