Volvo Penta D13 Certified For EPA Tier 3
Volvo Penta announced that its D13 marine diesel engine has further been developed to meet EPA Tier 3 emissions standards that take effect in 2014. The new version of D13 offers improved environmental properties with basically unchanged low-fuel consumption, the company said.
The D13 is an inline six-cylinder, 12.8 L diesel (131 mm bore x 158 mm stroke) that incorporates four valves per cylinder and electronically controlled unit fuel injectors. The engine is widely used throughout the Volvo Group and is currently in operation in more than 450,000 heavy-duty applications, including buses, trucks, construction equipment, industrial and marine, the company said.
The Volvo Penta D13 is available both as a propulsion engine (D13 MH) or as a marine gen-set (D13 MG), equipped with different cooling systems. Propulsion engine ratings span 400 to 600 hp. A range of gen-set ratings are offered — 248 to 332 kWe, 300 to 380 kWe, 248 to 332 kWe, 300 to 380 kWe, 248 to 332 kWe and 300 to 360 kWe — depending on frequency and cooling system selected.
