8th AVL Large Engines TechDays

Electrification, New Fuels and Power Sources: Boom or Doom for Large Engines?

The large engine application more and more is challenged by multiple factors. A new chapter of engine efficiency has just been started while global and local emission regulations still push the limits of traditional engine development including exhaust gas aftertreatment. Customers require robust solutions with a maximum fuel flexibility – be it Diesel fuel, natural gas, any kind of alcohols or hydrogen, mainly driven by fuel price.

Especially for marine and mobile applications, the challenge will be to intelligently integrate the combustion engines into complex systems side by side with batteries, fuel cells and other power sources.



Being successful in the long run will mean to adjust with all those new challenges and to provide integrated, tailored solutions for every customer.
AVL’s 8th Large Engines TechDays will focus on the multitude of aspects of challenges of electrification and hybridization, new fuels and competitive power sources and will be a platform to discuss the various approaches of OEMs, operators and suppliers to be successful in the future.
