Task 3.1: High efficiency and low emission TC concepts
 

Objectives:

  • Realisation of serial high pressure turbo-charging systems on medium speed marine engines to meet at least 50% NOx reduction
  • Demonstration of the reliability/durability of multistage turbo-charging systems by endurance tests
  • Investigate potential of high pressure turbo-charging on 2-stroke engines in view of NOx reduction
  • Realisation of control devices for advanced multistage turbo-charging systems, leading to improved part-load engine performance
