Usage of turbochargers in the marine engine is the most effective method of pressure charging. It utilizes the waste heat from exhaust gases. Advantages of using a turbocharger are:

  • Higher plant efficiency
  • No separate power source required
  • Caters to overloading condition
  • More efficient than other forms of supercharging.

In addition to improving engine performance, marine turbochargers can also help to reduce emissions by allowing the engine to burn fuel more efficiently.


This is important for ships that operate in environmentally sensitive areas, where emissions regulations may be stricter. Overall, marine turbochargers are an important component of modern marine engines, helping to improve their performance, efficiency, and environmental impact.
