VM Marine Engines Compatible for HVO (Hydrotreated Vegetable Oil) Fuel

VM’s MR504, MR704, MR706 and MR506 marine engines have now been added to the list of engines tested and approved for the use of HVO EN 15940 ecological fuel. The tests demonstrated that with HVO fuel there is a 20% reduction of PM emissions, 10% reduction of NOx and 2% reduction of CO2 emissions. Furthermore, HVO fuel has no impact on performance or reliability and can be used without requiring modifications to the engine or additional maintenance. 

HVO fuel is an ecological and sustainable synthetic diesel which is produced mainly from renewable sources such as oils and vegetable fats. The hydrogenation process creates a high-quality paraffinic fuel which has a high cetane number (>70) and a pure composition. Its density is around 7% less than diesel making it more stable. Compared to traditional diesel fuel, HVO has a reduced aromatic and sulphur content while the H/C (hydrogen/carbon) ration is slightly higher. Additionally, it is not susceptible to bacterial growth therefore making it ideal for long storage. HVO fuel is particularly suitable for rigid climates where the high cetane number and low gelling point (-32°C) make it ideal for cold starts. It can be blended and used in any proportion with diesel which allows for ease of transition.

VM MOTORI 2.2L HYDROGEN ENGINE

VM Motori is developing an H2 version of its 2.2L engine.

This exciting new engine marks a new chapter in our history, which has previously been dedicated to the design and production of diesel engines. Hydrogen is destined to become one of the main energy carriers of the future, contributing to the global drive for CO2 neutrality.
Hydrogen can be produced from water using renewable electricity and burns without emitting particulate matter, carbon monoxide or volatile organic compounds. Aftertreatment systems are used to eliminate most of the small amount of NOx which is produced.
Furthermore, H2 internal combustion engines (H2-ICE) also bring important advantages to the vehicle manufacturers. The technology is similar to that used in their current production vehicles, making powertrain system adaptation, maintenance, troubleshooting, service and refuelling easy.

This new 2.2L, 3 cylinder-in-line engine has evolved from our R753 engine. A team of engineers has worked to update the technical specifications to include state-of-the-art injectors, common rail, pistons, spark plugs, ignition coil and pressure regulator which are necessary for hydrogen fuel, while maximising component standardisation with its diesel predecessor.

With 62 kW output and 270 Nm peak torque, the H2-ICE performance will be around 10% higher than that of the diesel engine from which it was created. The engine will meet EURO VI E and STAGE V emissions regulations. Series production of this engine is planned for 2025.
