    Development of Large Capacity, Compact MET-MBII Series Axial Flow Turbine Turbochargers and MET-ER Series Radial Flow Turbine Turbochargers

    Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment Co., LTD.

    The role of turbochargers, which significantly affect engine performance, is becoming increasingly important in response to the strengthening of regulations on air pollution substances and carbon dioxide discharged from ship engines. The MET turbochargers are the exhaust gas turbine type, which is one of the global standards for turbochargers intended for marine diesel engines. Axial turbocharger models are mainly used with large 2-stroke engines and radial turbocharger models are used with small 4-stroke engines. Mitsubishi Heavy Industries Marine Machinery & Equipment Co., Ltd. (MH-MME, our company) developed the MET-MBII series of axial turbochargers and the MET-ER series of radial turbochargers, both of which feature the high performance that satisfies the environmental regulations and high capacity in a compact size characterized by mountability and low cost.
