Wärtsilä 50DF turbocharger performance upgrade

The Wärtsilä 50DF turbocharger performance upgrade increases engine performance in gas mode operation by increasing the waste gate margin around 10 percent. This makes it possible to fully control the charge air pressure on each load also in hot ambient conditions, thus the engine can be operated in all loading points.

    Technical info

    The key component in the turbocharger upgrade package is the new smaller nozzle ring, which increases turbocharger speed and waste gate margin.

    The Wärtsilä 50DF turbocharger performance upgrade is delivered as a turnkey solution including all required spare parts and installation.

    Benefits
    • Improves engine operation in all loading points in gas fuel operation
    • The Operational Expenditure (OPEX) can be reduced thanks to the increased waste gate margin
    • The increased waste gate margin also makes it possible to operate engines optimally even in hot ambient conditions 
    • The turbocharger efficiency is better maintained over the maintenance interval
    • The turbocharger upgrade will lower the fuel oil consumption over the total overhaul interval
    • Does not increase emissions
