According to Mr. Jahajeeah, the new turbocharger has fulfilled CEB’s expectations
. The exhaust gas temperatures are lower compared to the same load as before the retrofit. Lower temperatures mean better combustion and lower emissions regarding NOx.
With the new turbocharger, the Specific Fuel Oil Consumption was reduced by 8g/kWh, which was higher than expected. This is clear proof that the engine is more efficient with the new turbocharger. Furthermore, lower exhaust gas temperatures and improved engine operating parameters, such as charge air temperature and pressure, contribute to maintaining the thermal load of the engine at a correct level. “It’s easy to recommend a turbocharger retrofit to other customers with similar needs. Based on the fuel savings at an average engine load factor of 75%, the payback time for our investment is 15 months.,” concludes Mr. Manoj Kumar Jahajeeah.
