At next week’s UK Seawork 2012 commercial marine exhibition, Scania will be unveiling its new V8 marine engine. Based on the truck engine introduced last year with a 130 mm bore, it displaces 16.4 liters compared to the previous model of 16 liters with 127 mm bore. Scania is aiming the engine at the commercial market of workboats, ferries, and patrolboats and incorporates many features for that purpose. The fuel system is Scania’s own PDE high pressure fuel injection system with electronically triggered unit injectors. The new engine meets the latest exhaust emission regulations of US Tier 2, EU Stage IIIA and IMO II and will have the ability to meet future regulations, with additional changes. The engine is offered in a number of power outputs to suit workboat and patrol boat ratings ranging between 550 to 1,000 metric hp (405 to 736 kW) in a speed band of 1,800 to 2,300 rpm [More]
