OMT S.p.A.

Founded over 80 years ago, Officine Meccaniche Torino (O.M.T. S.p.A.), has served engine builders with dependable, high quality fuel injection equipment from the early days of large diesel engine development. In the intervening years, OMT's know-how and technology have always kept pace with the demands of builders and end users of low and medium speed engines and the evolution of the marine propulsion, power generation, gas compression and rail traction markets.

In particular, as a fully integrated producer, OMT has regularly invested a high percentage of its revenues in fuel injection research and the production facilities needed to produce the high quality and on-time deliveries demanded by its customers. The overall result is a range of dependable, high technology fuel injection systems for a full range of distillate and heavy fuels. Significantly, in the present phase of emissions-dominated engine development, OMT fuel injection systems are enablers of cleaner, more efficient diesel and dual-fuel combustion for emissions compliant engines with optimised fuel efficiency and maximised power density. Testifying to this success, OMT has gained certifications from the leading international quality assurance authorities, including all the most important marine classification societies.

The OMT R&D department is committed to advancing the state-of-the-art of large engine fuel injection to the benefit of all aspects of engine performance and - importantly - overall engine life cycle costs. In a process of simultaneous engineering, OMT cooperates closely with engine builders to produce fuel injection systems capable of meeting the challenges of modern large engine development. A major emphasis is currently the reduction in NOx emissions required under the IMO Tier III limitations for ships in Emission Control Areas while also minimising fuel consumption. The latter represents a contribution to lower operating costs, reduced greenhouse gas emissions and the conservation of fossil fuel resources. A major recent achievement by OMT has been the development of common rail fuel injection systems having unique levels of flexibility in terms of injection timing and injection rate, and at consistently high injection pressures. The latest equipment for computing and simulating thermal fluid dynamic processes, in conjunction with leading-edge materials science and intensive testing, all guarantee that systems and components produced at OMT offer high performance and excellent availability in the field.
