GE Receives BV Certification

Wednesday, March 08, 2006
GE Transportation’s marine business has received type approval certification from Bureau Veritas (BV), Paris, France, for its family of Electronic Fuel Injected (EFI), medium-speed diesel engines. “The BV type approval certifies that our 8, 12 and 16 cylinder engines are manufactured with high quality at GE’s Grove City, Pennsylvania facility,” said John Manison, manager of GE Transportation’s marine business in Erie, Pa. “Over the past several years, we have earned BV, American Bureau of Shipping and Germanischer Lloyd type approvals for our diesel engine family. Couple these quality certifications with many cost-saving features such as electronic fuel injection, and customers are offered significant benefits when using our engines,” Manison added. GE’s diesel engine line also carries key environmental certifications, including Central Commission for Navigation of the Rhine, and MARPOL, and are configured to operate in compliance with EPA Tier I/II. In order to secure BV certification, BV conducted a thorough design assessment of GE’s diesel engines based on drawings of major engine components. In addition to the 8, 12 and 16 cylinder engines, BV type approval was issued on GE’s Powerstar™ Controller, connectors and turbochargers. An annual audit will be conducted at Grove City to keep the BV type approval certification current.
