Sandvik said the cleaner new engine, developed by Volvo Penta, will delive 585 kW output.
The engine's after treatment system uses Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) rather than a diesel particulate filter. The SCR uses diesel exhaust fluid to reduce emissions of NOx without sacrificing performance or fuel efficiency
Further emission reduction is possible through use of ultra-low sulphur , renewable paraffinic diesel fuel, in conjunction with and low-ash engine oil.
"Renewable paraffinic diesel fuel considerably reduces greenhouse gas footprint and the emissions of carbon monoxide (CO), carbon dioxide (CO2), hydrocarbons (HC), nitrogen oxides (NOx) and diesel particulate matter (DPM) in the engine exhaust," noted the company.
