Abstract:

The Navy pilot program investigated cost-effective technologies to reduce emissions from legacy marine engines. High-speed, high-population engine models in both commercial and Navy fleets were targeted. Emission reductions were sought that would minimize fuel penalty as well as installation and operating costs. Navy operating conditions and fuels limited options. Five highly rated technologies were laboratory tested on a Detroit Diesel Corporation 12V-71N engine using two military and three alternative fuels. Two control technologies were then shipboard tested baseline, 1-year early degradation, and 9-year late-life. Conclusions and recommendations are provided to inform application of these and similar emission control technologies within both commercial and Navy fleets.
