Task 6.1: Water Injection Techniques
The goal of this task is to investigate the potential of direct water injection into the combustion chamber as a mean to reduce exhaust emissions. The timing, amount and location of the injection over the entire operating range of the engine will be considered. The long term behavior and the operational safety and reliability of such a system will also be addressed. Prototype components will be designed, manufactured and tested. A prototype system will be installed onboard a seagoing vessel for a full scale field test.
