The efficiency of the overall ship depends a lot on the efficiency of the engine running in its engine room. One of the important factors to ensure efficiency of marine engines is to control the power produced from each of its cylinder. Find out how power balancing helps to solve this problem and what you should be careful about while carrying out this process
Learn how different methods and arrangements that are used to supply fresh charge air to marine diesel engines have changed over the years.
As the RPM of marine engine reduces, the air supply from turbocharger also reduces. However, Variable Geometry Turbocharger or Variable Turbine Angle (VTA) Turbocharger supplies sufficient scavenge air to marine engine’s cylinder at all load ranges. Find out more inside.
Wartsila- A major player in the marine engine manufacturing industry has introduced an intelligent cylinder lubrication system in its electronically controlled engine. Known as the pulse lubrication system, the arrangement allows metered quantity of cylinder oil to be injected in the liner, depending on the engine load. Read inside to know more.
Efficient combustion of fuel oil in marine engines not only ensures reduction of fuel consumption but also promises a significant drop of carbon emissions in the engine exhaust. In this article we have described eight important ways to achieve efficient combustion in marine engines.
MHI-MME, and Kobe Diesel Co. have today concluded a basic agreement to pursue integration of the marine diesel engine operations of MHI-MME and Kobe Diesel.
