GE Marine Engines Grab Orders at IWS 2012

Press Release
Thursday, December 06, 2012

GE Marine take 16 orders at the 2012 International WorkBoat Show (IWS) in New Orleans to deliver L250 and V250 engines.

A combined total of 16 engines have been ordered for newbuilds and repowers by new customer Hyak Maritime and by an existing customer of GE Marine, Weeks Marine, Inc.

Headquartered in Delaware, Hyak Maritime selected GE engines for the main propulsion of two 120-foot ASD Titan Class tugs. GE Marine will provide four 2,679 horsepower 8L250 engines to power these tugs.

One of the largest marine dredging and tunneling contractors in the United States and Canada, Weeks Marine, Inc. has ordered four 6L250 and eight 16V250 engines to power and repower dredge pumps, serve as main propulsion and power gensets.

These GE Marine L250 and V250 engines are ABS classed and meet U.S. EPA Tier 2 and MARPOL standards. GE Marine was selected by these customers for its speed of delivery, engine performance and for the exceptional support from GE’s local distributors, Cummins Mid-South LLC in New Orleans for Weeks Marine, Inc., and Hatton Marine in Seattle for Hyak Maritime.

GE's family of medium-speed marine diesel engines includes 8-, 12- and 16-cylinder V configurations, as well as 6- and 8-cylinder inline or L configurations. The L250’s inline design offers maintenance ease and repower because its narrow footprint considers engine room constraints.

This engine offers an average 9% fuel savings when compared to GE Marine’s previous generation of marine engines under Tier 2 conditions. GE Marine’s V250 engine is emissions-compliant and fuel-efficient, delivering a fuel savings up to 6.5% under EPA Tier 2 conditions compared to earlier models offered by the manufacturer.
