Accelleron and Japan Engine Corporation (J-ENG) signed a technical agreement that authorises the use of Acceleron turbochargers on the UE Engine, according to Accelleron on Monday (22 August).
The Accelleron A100-L / A200-L range of turbochargers is designed for low-speed marine main engines and with orders of over 5,400 to date. By raising volume flow with increased power density and compact design, the high efficiency and high-pressure ratios of turbocharging increase engine performance.
This feature enhances the high fuel efficiency of the UE Engine and contributes to reducing fuel consumption. It also contributes considerably to reduced CO2 emissions and decarbonising ships installed with UE Engines, said to be one of the world’s three largest brands of low-speed marine engines.
“The agreement between our two companies will strengthen both our offerings and we are proud that Accelleron turbochargers will be used in UE Engines going forward,” said Alexandros Karamitsos, Head of Global Sales for Product Line Low-Speed Turbochargers, Accelleron.
“Our experience and reliability make us confident that our proven turbocharger technology can support the attainment of high fuel efficiency and lower emissions from UE Engines as ship operators take action to decarbonize the global shipping fleet,”
The first Accelleron turbocharger A255-L was introduced on the latest UE Engine model, 6UEC33LSH -C2, produced by the J-ENG’s UE licensee in China, Zhejiang Yungpu Diesel Engine Co., Ltd, in July 2022.
