At a current ceremony on the Tsunamachi Mitsui Membership in Tokyo, Japan, MAN Power Options signed a licence settlement with Mitsui E&S Equipment for MAN’s new TCT axial-turbocharger collection. As one of many largest, marine two-stroke engine builders on this planet, Mitsui has been a licencee of MAN Power Options low-speed engines and turbochargers for many years. The brand new settlement is because of run for 10 years and the partnership will allow Mitsui to offer the most recent turbocharger applied sciences to the market.
Ichiro Tanaka, CEO MES-M, stated: “Mitsui’s philosophy entails constructing belief via the services and products that we provide the market and this turbocharger settlement builds on that. I’m blissful to develop our relationship with MAN Power Options, our long-standing associate, and am assured we’ll ship vital worth to our clients.”
Dr. Daniel Struckmeier, Head of Gross sales & Licence Turbochargers, MAN Power Options, stated: “My nice due to Mitsui for his or her constructive position throughout negotiations. Our new TCT collection relies on years of hard-won expertise and brings the most effective of turbocharger attributes to the market. This licence settlement will additional improve Mitsui’s attraction throughout the two-stroke engine section whereas highlighting the TCT collection’ strengths. I consider it can show an essential milestone for each firms on our respective paths to rising market share globally.”
MAN-ES launched the TCT turbocharger collection in 2019, beginning with the TCT40, and subsequently adopted by the TCT30, TCT50 and TCT60. In the end, the collection will comprise six frame-sizes together with TCT70 and TCT80 items.
The newly developed radial compressor and axial turbine are key parts of the collection. Each have been developed with new design options, backed by the newest simulation applied sciences, leading to a really compact and light-weight turbocharger design. Due to its superior charging efficiencies, broad compressor maps and ample matching choices, TCT turbochargers can simply be matched to engines. Their variability covers not solely a variety of engine-tuning choices and gas varieties, but in addition all new necessities of immediately’s exhaust-gas after-treatment methods for IMO Tier III operations.
On the whole, TCT turbochargers supply the next options:
• lengthy TBOs – excessive efficiency bearings
• maintenance-friendly service idea leading to low life-cycle prices
• highest particular move charges, leading to a compact and light-weight design
• lowest noise emissions
• highest effectivity ranges.
For 2-stroke engines, TCT-series turbochargers are appropriate for engines starting from 5.5 MW as much as 24 MW per turbocharger. Typical purposes embrace prime movers for container vessels, massive bulk carriers or tankers.
