9th AVL Large Engine Techdays

Decarbonization – What does it Mean for Large Engines

The 9th AVL Large Engines TechDays will once again be one of the major networking events for experts in the field of Marine, Power Generation, Mining, Oil & Gas as well as Rail.


The 9th AVL Large Engine TechDays will focus on decarbonization and its impact on the future of all large engine applications and their power systems. The topics will cover pathways for sustainable CO₂ reduction by means of technologies with highest system efficiency, alternative fuels towards hydrogen-based energy carriers as well as alternative prime movers such as fuel cells.

The AVL Large Engine TechDays are a well-established forum, where the worldwide industry experts from large engine developers, OEMs, suppliers and user groups such as shipowners and locomotive operators meet and discuss their plans for the decarbonization strategy and the success of their high power application.

The 2020 conference will be opened by renowned keynote speakers from Rolls-Royce, MAN and WinGD, who will share their views and opinions on the overall conference theme.

A new session for the 9th AVL Large Engine TechDays will include a lively debate on decarbonization of future propulsion system technology and system architecture as well as fuels for 2050.

A panel discussion will host R&D leaders from the industry of designers, builders and users. The 2020 event also invites the prominent manufacturing groups from China, Japan and Korea.

Our upcoming conference will focus on high-level expert talks and networking possibilities throughout the entire event.

Excellent networking possibilities will be encouraged by a cocktail reception prior to the conference and a social evening on Tuesday, April 28th 2020.
