The engine is capable of running entirely on hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO) fuel resulting in emissions of carbon dioxide being reduced by up to 90%. Additionally, IMO Tier III requires emissions of nitrogen oxides (NOx) to be cut by more than 70%.
The DI13M range utilises selective catalytic reduction (SCR) to help achieve its low emissions. The technology is developed by Scania in-house and ensures minimum emissions of NOx. AdBlue, a urea-based solution, is injected into the exhaust system to convert toxic nitrogen oxides into water and harmless nitrogen gas.
“When used for propulsion, the engine continues our industry-leading tradition of delivering optimum fuel efficiency without compromising performance,” said David Bamber, general manager, Scania Engines.
The engine is available in a selection of power output steps from 257kW (350hp) to 405kW (550hp).
