8th AVL Large Engines TechDays – Electrification, New Fuels and Power Sources: Boom or Doom for Large Engines?
11 April, 2018 - 12 April, 2018
The large engine application more and more is challenged by multiple factors. A new chapter of engine efficiency has just been started while global and local emission regulations still push the limits of traditional engine development including exhaust gas aftertreatment. Customers require robust solutions with a maximum fuel flexibility – be it Diesel fuel, natural gas, any kind of alcohols or hydrogen, mainly driven by fuel price.
Especially for marine and mobile applications, the challenge will be to intelligently integrate the combustion engines into complex systems side by side with batteries, fuel cells and other power sources.
