MAN’s New EcoCam reduces fuel consumption

MAN EcoCam further optimises slow-steaming concept MAN Diesel & Turbo has introduced the MAN EcoCam as a retrofit solution for the low-load optimisation of its low-speed, mechanical engines with single turbochargers. The EcoCam offers significant fuel savings of 2 - 5 g/kW – with short payback times – and delivers an increased Pmax cylinder pressure through the adjustable exhaust-valve timing.Christian Ludwig – Head of Retrofit & Upgrade – MAN Diesel & Turbo, said: “Slow-steaming is now an established industry standard across all segments, including the tanker and bulker markets, and MAN continuously seeks to further refine its technology and improve efficiency. The MAN EcoCam adjusts the exhaust-valve timing between 10 and 60% load, giving a 2 - 5 g/kW fuel saving with minimal to no interruption to a vessel's schedule during installation. . For smaller engines, this can result in a payback period of as little as 1½ years as is the case,... [More]
