Next-Level Fuel Injection Systems
With over 125 years of experience as a leader in engineering, Scania continues to innovate within the marine engine industry. This includes taking the smart fuel injection technology used in its V8 truck and industrial applications and adapting it to marine engine use. Scania’s common-rail XPI fuel injection system offers exceptional fuel efficiency for 13-liter and 16-liter engines.
According to Scania Senior Technical Adviser Svante Lejon, the proven design of the XPI system delivers more power for mariners. Discussing the challenges of adapting the technology to marine engines, he said, “The XPI system introduces more fuel into the cylinders in a shorter time, providing more power[.] However, this also places higher demands on both the filtration system and the cleanliness of the fuel, as the system is more sensitive to particles[.] However, filter technology has now reached a level that allows for performance and uptime to be maintained at the high level that Scania expects.”
This technology translates into a better operating experience for today’s mariners. And, because Scania engines use a modular system, engine upgrades are simpler! Experience the difference of a marine engine built for today’s operators.
