NEW TURBOCHARGER SERIES FROM MAN B&W DIESEL
The TCA series will replace the well-known NA series and combines a higher power output with lower production and running costs.
"The TCA turbocharger will set new standards in both performance and serviceability." says Rolf Studte, head of the turbocharger division, "and the statistics prove it."
The TCA turbocharger increases the engine output considerably, and the efficiency is more than 68% for all turbochargers on engines with a bore above 50 cm. The TCA series meets all environmental noise requirements as it only reaches 105 dBA even at top speed.
A TCA77 turbocharger has been sucessfully installed on a 7S50MC-C two-stroke engine, one of MAN B&W Diesel's popular two-stroke MC engines, 340 units of the S50MC-C type are on order or in service.
This engine and the new turbocharger were recently presented to selected guests at MAN B&W Diesel in Frederikshavn, Denmark, and will be installed in a 37,500 dwt chemical tanker being built for Norwegian owner JO Tankers at Kleven Florø Shipyard, Norway.
