Scania showcases new 13-liter EPA tier 3 engine

At the 2013 International WorkBoat Show, Scania’s will showcase its robust 13-liter EPA Tier 3 engine, intended for propulsion and auxiliary use, along with the powerful 16-liter EPA Tier 3 engine.

Scania engines are all based on new state-of-the- art modular engine platform, which is used for marine, industrial, power generation, truck and bus applications worldwide.

The engines build on a long tradition of amazing power packages that share both technology and architecture with Scania’s truck and bus engines. This makes for exceptional performance.

Easy installation 

Most repairs and servicing can be carried out by a single service technician, since each cylinder has its own head, which together with wet cylinder liners makes for easy overhauls in confined spaces. The camshaft is located high in the block and the timing gears are rear-mounted in order to increase the accuracy of engine timing and reduction of noise.

High-performance inline sixes 

The output ratings for Scania’s newest version of the 13-liter marine propulsion engine ranges from 250 – 675 hp, and will continue to have outputs up to 750 hp

for use in international and exempt markets. For auxiliary applications the range for EPA Tier 3 is 269 kW – 426 kW.

In all types of automotive, industrial and marine applications, Scania’s new engine platform is renowned for its high efficiency, providing very good fuel economy irrespective of operation.

Extended maintenance intervals  

Scania’s familiar centrifugal oil cleaner effectively removes small particles from the lubrication oil, while reducing the size of the replaceable filter cartridge. The Scania saver ring, placed at the top of each cylinder liner, reduces carbon deposits on the edge of the piston crown and reduces cylinder liner wear. In spite of higher performance and tighter emission levels, Scania has been able to increase maintenance and oil change intervals by 25% (now 500 hours) in comparison to its predecessor.

Instrumentation optional  

Scania also has a new type-approved instrumentation that facilitates installation via a user-friendly and flexible web interface; the marine operator can adapt the information on the displays and choose any required data to be shown. There are program templates for water temperature, engine speed, oil pressure and fuel consumption.

In-house development  

Engine-by-engine, the new engine range has been designed for high strength and durability. Many components are shared across the range, a factor that facilitates

a reduction in parts supply, since it significantly eliminates the number of unique parts used for each engine. The modular architecture and common work methods simplify training in Scania’s service network, while maximizing uptime for users.

Scania secures control of all strategic steps in development and performance control. Basic engine development and manufacturing as well as the development of engine management, fuel injection and emission control systems are all carried out in-house. This strategy is motivated by performance and fuel economy demands and targets, as well as by the need to secure consistent environmental performance, robustness and convenience of operation.
