FPT Industrial rides the wave of sustainability, efficiency and powerful innovation at METSTRADEGlobalSpec News Desk | November 16, 2023
During November 15 to 17, FPT Industrial is attending METSTRADE 2023, the world’s largest B2B marine equipment trade show, which is celebrating its 35th anniversary. Environmental protection, hybrid propulsion, smart solutions and future-oriented collaborations are the main themes of the brand’s attendance at RAI Amsterdam Europaplein (Amsterdam, The Netherlands).
N67 450 N for auxiliary fixed speed and Stage V applications — The engine that brings together professionals and yachtsmen
Available for both pleasure boating and light to medium professional marine duties, the N67 450 N engine offers high power output and maximum torque at low engine speed. It is offered in both heat-exchanged and keel-cooled configurations, all customizable on request, while options include electronic remote control, monitoring systems, and compliance with international emissions standards. Advanced diagnostic equipment allows easier engine servicing, while oil and filter change intervals of up to 600 hours minimize downtime. At METSTRADE 2023, the N67 450 N is also exhibited as an auxiliary power unit with layout and specific settings focused on marine duties, available for fixed-speed auxiliary g-drive thanks to the new 129 kW model at 1,500 rpm and 1,800 rpm, that is IMO exempted. Available in 50 Hz and 60 Hz versions, FPT Industrial’s marine fixed-speed G-Drive engines have been developed to act in synergy with the FPT Industrial marine propulsion line-up, with prime power ratings capable of a 10% power overload, according to ISO 8528 prime power. The extensive list of available options allows the most varied needs to be met, including electronic speed controllers for both mechanical and electronic engines.
C90 650 EVO hybrid configuration — The modular and scalable parallel hybrid electric marine propulsion system for commercial and pleasure vessels
Top performance, compact design, flexibility and fuel efficiency for commercial and pleasure vessels. These are the main features of the C90 650 EVO Hybrid developed by FPT Industrial and Vulkan Hybrid Architect, a leading brand in the design and manufacture of complex systems with wide experience in tailor-made integrated hybrid solutions for shipyards and shipowners. Based on the Compact Parallel Hybrid architecture and built around pre-defined modular and flexible hardware combinations to meet customer requirements, the solution on display in Amsterdam features an FPT Industrial C90 650 EVO diesel engine, a Hybrid Clutch to engage and disengage the ICE, an e-machine in the form of a synchronous permanent magnet and axial flux motor, a frequency converter, a marine gearbox, elastic joints and a vibro-acoustic isolation system. Easy to use and ready to handle any situation and conditions, the C90 650 EVO Hybrid guarantees reduced maintenance and costs, considerable fuel savings, reduced emissions, and exceptional comfort. In addition, the silent full-electric-drive mode allows access to marine protected areas.
The C90 650 EVO Hybrid is a compact, turn-key solution, ideal for small engine rooms and repowering projects, allowing the shipyard to downsize or eliminate the onboard generator. In addition to the hybrid drivetrain shown at the exhibition, this solution includes the DC switchboard cabinet, the transformer, the PMS, the control system and the battery system.
FPT Industrial marine lineup has been hybridized by Vulkan, in pre-determined configurations from 125 kW to 735 kW, providing various choices of e-motor powers to be coupled (from 96 kW to 250 kW) and modular battery packs.
New C90 650 E light duty — Best-in-class top power and peak torque for light duty applications
Based on the C90 650 E architecture, the new C90 605 HP light duty debuting in Amsterdam was designed to increase the available power in the B1 light duty curve, up to 1,000 h/y usage, from 580 HP to 605 HP at 2,530 rpm.
In doing so, FPT Industrial engineers achieved a number of customer-related benefits and competitive advantages, such as best-in-class top power, best-in-class peak torque (20% more than the main competitor), lower rated speed allowing the coupling to gearboxes with lower reduction ratio, and very steep torque rise to facilitate maneuvering on various light commercial applications.
Also available in the optional keel cooling configurations, the new C90 605 HP light duty is certified EPA Tier III commercial/IMO Marpol Tier II for applications in U.S., Canada, Europe and rest of the world.
C16 600 — Custom-made for heavy-duty missions
The C16 600 is ideal for push and tugboats, ferries, dredgers and commercial fishing vessels,
available with heat exchanger cooling and keel cooled system. As with all FPT Industrial’s Common Rail marine engines, the C16 can also be fueled by HVOs and all EN 15940 compatible fuels with no compromise on performance.
IMO Tier III-compliant solutions — FPT Industrial and Frydenbø Industri AS Marine join forces for a cleaner environment
Aimed at reducing the environmental impact of the maritime industry, the Frydenbø ATS for FPT Industrial engines is a simple and flexible system that meets the IMO III emission requirements in emission-controlled areas as Baltic Sea, the English Channel and the North Sea south of 62° latitude and is available for the brand’s marine engines from 6 to 16 l. Developed in collaboration with Frydenbø Industri AS Marine, the authorized Distributor of FPT Industrial’s products and services in Norway and Sweden, this practical ATS system is designed and supplied by Frydenbø Industri AS.
The additional benefits customers in Scandinavia, the east and south-coasts of the U.K., northern France, Belgium, the Netherlands, northern Germany, Denmark, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia, Estonia and Canada’s seaboard can enjoy include noise reduction — with an average transmission loss of 35dB (A) — and light weight, with just 300 kg per engine, urea tank included.
