MAN Diesel & Turbo has been selected by oil and gas services provider Petrofac for the delivery of a selective catalytic reduction (SCR) system for six MAN 16V32/44CR engines.
The engines will be installed in Petrofac JDS 6000 deepwater derrick-lay vessel.
MAN Diesel & Turbo will build the SCR systems and engines at its facility in Augsburg, Germany.
In addition, MAN will manage, maintain and monitor the engines for a period of 12 years.
MAN Diesel & Turbo senior project manager emission 2016 Dr Daniel Struckmeier said: "For the last 8,800 hours, this particular engine aboard the Petunia Seaways has consistently met Tier III [nitrogen oxide] limits under real-life operating conditions and in full accordance with the rules."
In January, Petrofac placed an order for this vessel with ZPMC yard in China and it will be constructed using the company’s proprietary design.
The new-build vessel is expected to be delivered in 2016 and will be available for offshore construction and installation activities from early 2017.
With Petrofac JDS, the owner will have a reach into the high-end, turnkey opportunities in the high-growth deepwater and subsea umbilicals, risers and flowlines (SURF) markets. The deal will also help the company to access shallow-water engineering, procurement, construction and installation (EPCI) projects, MAN Diesel & Turbo stated.
The SCR system comprises a catalytic converter with several control units and a surveillance-and-control unit.
The four-stroke marine engines with IMO Tier III-compliance are based on a fully modular SCR-kit that covers the entire MAN Diesel & Turbo four-stroke engine portfolio.
