High Power Systems

ICE Development for High Power Systems

Comprehensive solutions for the engineering and optimization of large engines

Just as in other mobility sectors, large engine applications such as the shipping industry, construction, rail and power generation are facing pressure from competitive economic challenges and increasingly stringent emission regulations. These are the main forces driving improved optimization in these engines and their development.

Fuel efficiency, initial cost, reliability and service/maintenance lifecycle cost are key considerations for the creation of optimum engine performance that is perfectly tuned to the customer's needs. In addition to expertise in these areas, the appropriate application of the newest technologies for aftertreatment, waste heat recovery, auxiliary drives and cooling systems are vital to the demands of global legislation and the changing economic landscape.

At AVL this is just what we offer you. We are a world leader in internal combustion engine development with over 70 years of experience. We collaborate closely with customers around the globe thanks to our worldwide presence, delivering technological innovation, simulation-based and production-oriented development, modern testing facilities and system integration.
