MTU Unveils Sulfur Tolerance Solution For Tier 4
As part of its efforts to provide the advanced off-highway diesel engine technology to original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and customers around the world, Rolls-Royce Power Systems is announcing a new high-sulfur fuel capability for its family of MTU industrial engines.
MTU’s new Sulfur Tolerance Solution, announced at ConExpo-Con/Agg 2014, will be available in mid-2014 for Tier 4 interim MTU Series 900, 500 and 460 engines, followed by MTU’s complete lineup of Tier 4 final certified Series 1000 through 1500 diesel engines in the future.
This, the company said, will enable OEMs to utilize the latest MTU engine technology in countries where ultralow sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel is not available and will also protect MTU engines from the effects of high sulfur fuels used in many regions of the world.
“The MTU Sulfur Tolerance Solution is designed to provide more than just our proven reliability and durability to OEMs and equipment operators,” said Bernd Krueper, vice-president of global industrial sales, MTU Friedrichshafen. “This new capability will also simplify design, ordering and installation processes for OEMs and repower customers around the world.”
