ABB Turbocharging tops industry efficiency benchmark

ABB Turbocharging claimed that they have raised the industry benchmark for low-speed turbocharging efficiency to achieve an additional turbocharger efficiency increase of 2% by performing the measurement on an actual engine on an engine testbed.

As a performance yardstick for low-speed turbochargers, the industry applies the turbocharger efficiency benchmark given by MAN Diesel & Turbo, a leading global low-speed engine designer. ABB Turbocharging has now proven an exceptional 2% higher efficiency compared to this industry standard.

The companies efficiency benchmark test took place earlier this year on a Hyundai testbed in Korea. Three ABB latest generation A180-L turbochargers, produced by Hyundai under license, were fitted on an 8G95ME-C9.5 engine and the turbocharging efficiency was measured accordingly. The measurement was performed with state-of-the-art wireless measuring equipment to ensure highest data accuracy.

For marine operators the additional 2% efficiency increase achieved by the ABB A180-L turbochargers would mean annual fuel savings of up to 35,000 USD per vessel, depending on fuel price and load profile. This exceptional efficiency increase was also confirmed and verified by MAN Diesel & Turbo.
Fuel and maintenance costs have the highest impact on lifecycle costs and therefore total cost of ownership (TCO). This efficiency increase in turbocharging and the resulting effect of lower fuel consumption and costs will have a direct positive impact on the overall TCO for application operators.
Arie Smits, Senior General Manager, Product Group Low-Speed at ABB Turbocharging said, “The result of the measurement on an actual engine is a confirmation of our promise and commitment to continue to push for highest efficiencies and value for our customers. Promised, delivered and proven.”
