exhaust aftertreatment technology, our robust solution is designed for tough marine conditions. The system is built to cope with high sulfur fuel and sustain high back pressure, while maintaining engine efficiency and driveability.
The exhaust aftertreatment technology chosen by Volvo Penta is Selective Catalytic Reduction, SCR, which ensures high engine power and efficiency while reducing NOx. We are leveraging our knowledge of SCR technology within Volvo Penta and the Volvo Group. Our IMO III solution has been adapted to demanding marine conditions, and tested extensively at our own facilities as well as in commercial customer applications – in total 20,000 hours at the launch in 2018.
IMO III puts a focus on NOx limit, because NOx damages eco systems and poses health hazards. The Volvo Penta SCR solution reduces NOx levels by up to 75%.
