Vetus upgrades D-Line engines

Comments Comments

New features added to reduce heat and noise, save space.

Vetus will be using this week’s METSTRADE show in Amsterdam to introduce new versions of its common-rail D-Line engines (122hp to 210hp), offering more power and torque at lower revs while maintaining reliability and durability.

The new engines now feature a water-cooled top cover to reduce heat and noise in the engine room, delivering what Vetus describes as a near-silent engine block. The top cover is also sturdy enough to be used as a step.

Other new features include a smaller air filter to save space in the engine room, new exhaust manifold insulation, water heater connections, an electric sump pump, and a high output alternator (160 Amps) as standard.

Options on the engines include a second alternator, a PTO flange to install a hydraulic pump, a flybridge instrument panel, and a trolling valve. These options can be ordered separately but installed on the engine as a complete package. An option exclusive to the six-cylinder models is a separate fuel filter kit.

The new D-line engines meet the new RCD2013/53/EU emissions regulations and are suitable for power hydraulics on board. Supplied with a CAN bus system with a SAEJ1939 protocol, they also work with NMEA2000 systems on board.

The new engines will be available for sale in the beginning of 2017.
