A technical agreement signed between the two companies authorizes the use of Accelleron turbochargers on the UE Engine available from Japan Engine Corp. (J-ENG). The first Accelleron A255-L turbocharger has already been introduced on the UE Engine 6UEC33LSH -C2 model produced by J-ENG’s UE licensee in China, Zhejiang Yungpu Diesel Engine Co., Ltd, in July 2022.

J-ENG was established in April 2107 following the consolidation of Kobe Diesel Co. Ltd. with the diesel engine division of Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery Co. Ltd. The company offers an integrated system of the UE Engine from development to aftersales service. According to J-ENG, the UE Engine is the only Japanese-domestic brand for marine low-speed engines and is currently one of the three largest brands of this engine type.

The A100-L/A200-L range of turbochargers from Accelleron are specifically designed for low-speed marine two-stroke engines in applications from 3000 to 28000 kW. Raising volume flow (by up to 15%) results in a compact design with higher power density. The resulting high-pressure ratios of turbocharging can increase engine performance, said Accelleron, improving fuel efficiency and contributing to reduced CO2 emissions and decarbonization of ships such as those with the UE Engine installed.

“The agreement between our two companies will strengthen both our offerings and we are proud that Accelleron turbochargers will be used in UE Engines going forward,” said Alexandros Karamitsos, head of global sales for Product Line Low-Speed Turbochargers at Accelleron, which is the new face of AB Turbocharging. “Our experience and reliability make us confident that our proven turbocharger technology can support the attainment of high fuel efficiency and lower emissions from UE Engines as ship operators take action to decarbonize the global shipping fleet.”
