Heinzmann Group has two separate stands at the SMM show in Hamburg, Germany, which runs Sept. 4-7 in Hamburg, Germany.
Stand 108 in Hall A3 is dedicated to products for prime movers and propulsion systems, while stand 504 in Hall B6 presents integrated marine alarm monitoring and control systems by group’s companies Regulateurs Europa Ltd. and Heinzmann Automation AS.
In the booth dedicated to propulsion solutions, the company will showcase the new Lavinia E-PPN, an electronic fuel injection extension for pump-pipe-nozzle (PPN) injection systems for medium-sized marine engines up to 350 kW per cylinder. Lavinia E-PPN is based on a high-pressure fuel valve that enables parameterisation of the beginning of injection, the injection quantity and cylinder balancing, depending on engine speed and load.
Also on display is the Odysseus common rail retrofit kit is utilized to replace existing conventional diesel fuel injection system and to achieve reduction in fuel consumption and lower emissions. The system is particularly interesting for larger marine engines, where it delivers short payback times. Heinzmann provides turnkey solutions that include the common rail conversion system, installation, commissioning and full lifetime service.
The Artemis Dual-Fuel system, which enables the conversion of diesel-powered combustion engines to natural gas, will also be presented. For large medium and low speed engines, the gas supply to the engine is realized by cylinder individual port injection for a precise cylinder balancing, good transient behavior of the engine and low CH4 blow-by losses.
The gas dosing on engines with gas mixers usually tends to be slow and allows only limited influence on control, but Artemis offers a very flexible system configuration in order to achieve the best possible adaptation for any application.
The dual-fuel system is operated by the latest version of Heinzmann’s MVC 01-24 EFI-controller, actuating the specially-developed double-walled Megasol 200 II gas admission valves. It is ideal for large low and medium-speed engines with an output power range between 1000 kW and 10 MW.
This system was proven in a field application on a CAT 3618 marine engine, in combination with an intelligent air path management controlled by Heinzmann’s wastegate valve WG 70. The engine has been operated with a conversion ratio up to 90% gas.
Finally, Heinzmann will present its microprocessor-controlled hydraulic governor DG 2800.14 that can be used on diesel, gas or dual-fuel engines and steam turbines. DG 2800.14 consists of the well-proven RE 2800 series actuator by Regulateurs Europa and the Heinzmann digital DC 14 governor.
At the stand dedicated to marine automation and technology, the company will present the SeaMACS Integrated Automations Systems (IAS), suited both for retrofit and for new ships. It is a well-established scalable system for the monitoring of vessel machinery and associated equipment. The system can easily be integrated and customised as it works together with equipment from most suppliers on the market.
Also on display, FuelMACS is a fuel performance system which assists the ship-owner to fulfil IMO requirements for developing a Ship Energy Efficiency Management Plan (SEEMP). The system can be used at the same time with the same data, not only on-board but also onshore by the shipping company. Several vessels can be monitored and compared at the same time with the same tool.
The Trino Vibration Monitoring System is a condition-based monitoring product for critical rotating equipment using continuous vibration monitoring to identify early signs of wear and potential failure. Typical use of Trino is on turbochargers, generators, large pumps and gearboxes.
A local display screen not only gives a clear signalling of pre and main alarm levels being breached, but also delivers an initial diagnosis of the cause of alarm upon which the local engineer can then decide upon a suitable course of action. Also offered is a remote monitoring option.
