Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology Engine manufacturers go digital Marine engine manufacturers are transforming themselves into sys - tem providers with improved customer service. Increasing efficiency and environmental requirements will will also change the energy mix LNG, LPG, alternative fuels and electric propulsion solutions will gain significant market shares. The depressed world shipbuilding industry has dragged down the marine diesel engine industry since 2011. According to a recently published report, the global output declined by -17.4% between 2012 and 2016. As global shipping markets began to rally over the past two years, the production of marine diesel engines revved up, reaching roughly 33.5 mill. horsepower in 2017 with a year-on-year increase of 7%. Currently, the global low-speed marine diesel engines are dominated by MAN, Wärtsilä and Mitsubishi Heavy Industries; in the medium-speed engine market, Wärtsilä, MAN and Caterpillar held a combined market share of 86% (in 2017). High-speed engine brands include MTU, Deutz, MWM, SACM, Pielstick, Ruston and Paxman. In China, marine diesel engines are mainly produced through patent licensing by MAN, Wärtsilä and MTU. The recent downturn in the shipping and shipbuilding industry has hampered the market. With a slight recovery in sight, the industry is now focusing on the development of higher-efficient diesel engines, which use less fuel while providing more propulsion power to the vessel. Dual-fuel engines, hybrid systems, fuel cells and the use of alternative fuels such as methanol or bio fuels are also on the rise. Although gas engines are more and more in demand, neither the use of LNG or LPG nor electric power will solve all problems. Estimates by experts predict that by 2050 climate-neutral fuels will reach a share of 39%, followed by fossil fuels such as marine gas oil and HFO with a total of still 33%. Liquefied gas (LNG and LPG) will then account Ihr Einsatz ist unbezahlbar. Deshalb braucht sie Ihre Spende.

»MTU Go! Act« and »MTU Go! Manage« are said to be the first digital tools to be introduced in shipping Schiffstechnik | Ship Technology Volvo Penta IMO III Optimized for marine Photo: MTU for 23%. Starting in the middle of the century, batteries will be used on a third of all newbuildings. In combination with shore-side electricity, 5% of the global energy demand in shipping will be covered. But there is still another trend to be observed. Most of the engine manufactures offer new new digital products to provide more benefits to their customers. Permanent performance monitoring has long since become a standard.In the future, the focus will be more on digital networking of suppliers and users in order to improve efficiency and to avoid unnecessary costs through forward-looking service and maintenance planning. Thus, leading companies are on their way to establishing themselves as complete solutions provider instead of staying behind as »heavy metal industry«. Among others, Rolls-Royce Power Systems together with its German brand MTU is strengthening its activities to expand its digital services by providing roundthe-clock support. The goal is to ensure optimum levels of availability for the propulsion systems. »MTU Go! Act« and »MTU Go! Manage« are the first digital tools to be introduced in shipping. Connecting up the systems via data loggers will enable both MTU experts and customers to monitor the engines remotely, schedule maintenance work and determine the availability of spare parts, analyse operating data and derive what action is to be recommended to improve the use and operation of products. »Cyber security and data protection have been assigned the highest priority,« the company stated at the SMM trade show in Hamburg. Wärtsilä goes one step further. The Fins predict a radical transformation for the world’s largest means of transportation. New smart technologies will allow vessels and ports to become connected in ways that remain unparalleled in maritime history. »We simply cannot afford to wait for the marine and energy industries to evolve at their own pace,« said Wärtsilä’s President and CEO Jaakko Eskola. »The calls for greater efficiency, sustainability, and connectivity are simply too strong to be ignored. Wärtsilä’s initiative »Oceanic Awakening« is meant to be a wake-up call to the whole shipping and shipbuilding community. As consumer demand increases, maritime businesses are faced with major opportunities to improve operational inefficiencies that impose a significant negative impact on profitability and sustainability.KF Proven SCR technology ensures high engine power output while offering efficient NOx reduction. The Volvo Penta IMO Tier III solution is robust and designed for tough marine conditions. Based on SCR exhaust aftertreatment technology, our solution is available for IPS, inboard, genset and auxiliary applications. It is designed for flexibility, ease of installation and spaceefficient configuration. See more at HANSA International Maritime Journal – 155. Jahrgang – 2018 – Nr. 10 57
