    Increased electrical engine efficiency lowers fuel gas cost by up to 3 percent.
  • Lower lifecycle costs.
    • Reduced oil consumption by up to 33 percent which is equal to up to 1,700L less oil consumption per year through improved power unit concept and blow-by system retrofit.
    • Better prediction of unplanned events through crankcase and oil filter differential pressure monitoring.
    • Extended service intervals through enhanced blow-by and air filter system.
    • Reduced combustion chamber deposit formation and oil carry-over to the turbocharger and intercooler through the enhanced blow-by system.
  • Higher flexibility in regards to gas quality variations
