Volvo Penta D13 IMO III
With the D13-MH IMO III, Volvo Penta has been able to fulfill IMO III exhaust emission targets while maintaining the same low fuel consumption. It’s an in-line 6-cylinder, 12.8-liter, diesel engine using a high-pressure unit injector system, overhead camshaft, twin-entry turbo using a water-cooled exhaust manifold and miller timing contributes to high fuel efficiency and exceptional operating economy. It is designed to cope with high back pressure and high-sulfur fuel – up to 1,000 ppm. The SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) exhaust after treatment system is tailored perfectly for the engine. The SCR unit, also a silencer, reduces noise by 35-40 dBA, resulting in unaffected engine power output.
