“Cool” Scania engine with 700 hp at Seawork 2007
Scania's new 12-litre marine engine turns out a full 700 hp for ‘patrol short’ operation. For ‘patrol long’ service the engine is also available with 550 or 625 hp. Extra cooling capacity is provided by an ingenious combination of cooling systems for engine, turbo and charge air. Emission compliance is according to Tier 2, Stage III A marine and IMO unclassified.
The ubiquitous 12-litre engine range is Scania's centrepiece at Seawork, the largest international commercial maritime exhibition and business forum ever held in a European working port environment.
The new version features various cooling refinements to achieve its top output of 700 hp at 2300 r/min. Dual charge-coolers secure sufficient intake air cooling with the high boost pressures involved. The high-output turbocharger is water-cooled. Pistons are jet-cooled by oil and of Scania's renowned Keystone ring design.
The engine features Scania EMS, an inhouse developed engine management system that is outstandingly flexible when it comes to tailoring the engine performance to individual customer applications.
Scania's 12-litre marine engine has earned a reputation for ruggedness and durability, as well as ease of servicing thanks to its compact dimensions and service-friendly architecture. The camshaft is mounted high in the block with short pushrods for precise actuation of valve gear and unit injectors. Separate cylinder heads and wet liners make it ease for a single mechanic to overhaul any individual cylinder without touching the others.
Seawork takes place 12-14 June 2007 at the ABP Port of Southampton, UK.
