The demand for further emission reductions and a higher level of efficiency is still the driving force behind future developments in the case of diesel and gas engines. Meeting this demand not only involves optimising existing solutions but also developing new techniques and methods. In the future, innovative solutions for increasing efficiency / lowering fuel consumption will become more important but compliance with the increasingly strict global exhaust standards for engines in stationary and mobile use will remain an essential requirement.
In the case of large engines, there is a clear trend towards gas as a more affordable fuel solution. The search for alternative fuels / fuel combinations that can be used in combustion engines in an economical and environmentally friendly manner is still yet another driving force behind research and development work.
On the one hand, the applicable IMO Tier III emission standards for marine engines both within and outside of the so-called emission control areas (ECA) will result in a demand for the increased use of effective and service-friendly exhaust after-treatment plants and on the other hand, they will help the use of gas as a fuel in ship operation to become more widespread.
These requirements offer WTZ Roßlau a wide range of future-oriented activities.
