JULY 7, 2017 — Scania is launching a new six-cylinder 13-liter inline marine engine.
The new engine, which combines new power levels ranging from 650 to 925 hp with reduced fuel consumption, consolidates Scania’s position as a leader in power-to-weight ratio.
The engine is the second platform in Scania’s marine engine portfolio to use common rail XPI fuel injection technology to reach higher power levels and lower fuel consumption.
XPI technology was first introduced in Scania’s marine engine range in 2015 when the 1,150 hp V8 engine was launched. However, the system has been used in its engines for trucks and industrial applications since 2007;
As well as lowering fuel consumption and noise levels, the common-rail XPI fuel injection system also gives a faster engine response and a quicker torque build-up.
“With the new power output levels, Scania is reinforcing its class-leading power-to-weight ratio and allowing our customers to increase their range of operation within current application areas, thanks in large part to the new Scania XPI fuel system,” says Torben Dabrowski, Global Product Manager, Marine at Scania Engines explains:as Torben Dabrowski, Global Product Manager, Marine at Scania Engines.
The first appearance of the new, and powerful 13-liter engine will be on display at the Lobster Boat Races in Stonington, ME on July 9, 2017.
“This new engine will give fisherman a solution that meets their commercial power needs, exceeds other competitor engine’s duty-cycles while meeting emissions requirements. All without the need for any aftertreatment,” says Alberto Alcála, Marine Sales Manager Scania U.S.A. “Customers are already lining up with pre-order sales to the NW Bristol Bay fisheries. Five engines are already slated for fall delivery, with another six on order.”

The ratings offer impressive power while remaining within EPA Tier 3 requirements, and avoids the use of any aftertreatment.
