Market Update Note

February 12th 2013

PMI Auto-tuning Standard

ME/ME-C/ME-B Mk 9, 8.2, 8.3 Tier II Engines

We hereby give a summary of the implementation plan for our ME engines and, at the
same time, underline why this initiative is necessary.

The engines affected by this Market Update Note include:

all G-engines which, as a standard, will be equipped with PMI auto-tuning

all 80-98 bore engines contracted after 15 July 2012
all S50ME-C8.2 engines with Low Force exhaust valve
All other ME/ME-C and ME-B engines contracted after 1 April 2013.

As to the reason for the necessity of PMI auto-tuning, we can inform you that PMI
auto-tuning is a valuable tool for keeping the engine fully updated on the pmax, pcomp
and pi distribution on the individual cylinders, thereby ensuring excellent performance.

Our latest engine designs, the ME/ME-B - 8.2, 8.3, 9.2 and 9.3, all fully utilise the
possibilities of Miller timing (very late closing of the exhaust valve) in the high load
area and, furthermore, feature very large variations in pcomp/pscav over the load range,
sometimes combined with freeze injection profiles. This increases the demand for a
very reliable and precise control and updating of the parameter settings.

In addition to the above-mentioned reason, PMI auto-tuning working online will

thereby increase the accuracy of the exhaust valve closing time for the Low Force
exhaust valve, which is designed with a floating valve lift.

The introduction of the Low Force exhaust valve and the Dot 3 technologies represent
a well-defined change in the engine design. This change is suitable for making a clear
borderline for the introduction of other valuable technologies, e.g. PMI auto-tuning.

PMI is expected to enhance the competitiveness of the engines. Obviously, this

represents a slight cost increase, but the benefits and the payback time of the system
make PMI very attractive. As an additional benefit, the reliability of the engine
