MTU's Bernd Kruper said emissions flex package allows exhaust after-treatment systems to be deactivated.
Engine manufacturer MTU, a division of Rolls Royce Power Systems, is offering an emissions flex package for new and used engines operating in countries where different emissions requirements and high sulphur diesel are in use.
It enables exhaust after-treatment and SCR systems to be deactivated simply by software, rather than hardware changes, said the company.
“There are no time consuming hardware modifications to make,” said Bernd Kruper, vice president of MTU’s construction and industrial business. “By making a software upgrade, deactivating exhaust after-treatment systems opens up new market opportunities for those looking to sell used equipment into lesser regulated markets.”
The emissions flex package will also be offered as a retro-fit solution for MTU’s 900, 460 and 500 engines that are based on Mercedes Benz classic engine series, designed to meet Stage IIIB/Tier 4i.
