MTU’s new Sulfur Tolerance Solution will be available in mid-2014 for Tier 4
interim MTU Series 900, 500 and 460 engines, followed by MTU’s complete lineup
of Tier 4-final certified Series 1000 – 1500 engines in the future. This new
solution will enable OEMs to utilize the latest MTU engine technology in
countries where ultra-low sulfur diesel (ULSD) fuel is not available, and will
also protect MTU engines from harmful effects of high sulfur fuel.

“The MTU Sulfur Tolerance Solution is designed to provide more than just our
proven reliability and durability to OEMs and equipment operators,” said Bernd
Krueper, vice-president of global industrial sales, MTU Friedrichshafen. “This
new capability will also simplify design, ordering and installation processes
for OEMs and repower customers around the world.”
