Hendy Power appointed distributor for Baudouin engines in the UK

Hendy Power has strengthened its offering in the commercial marine power market after being appointed as UK distributor for Baudouin, the French manufacturer of marine and power generation diesel and gas engines.

Hendy Power director Andy Smith said the addition of Baudouin reinforces the high calibre and experience within Hendy Power and its position as a leading supplier in the marine market.

“This is an important milestone for Hendy Power as we continue to expand our offering in the marine market,” said Andy. “We are now working towards building a network of UK dealers who will be involved in the supply of these engines and parts to operators.”

Andy said the Baudouin range of engines provides the commercial marine market with engines particularly suited to fleet operators and boat builders looking to operate at high power for long-duty cycles such as offshore fishing, wind support vessels, tugs, large trawlers, and large car ferries.

“We believe that the growth of wind farms in the UK will be a key sector for the growth of Baudouin in the UK and our dealer network is expected to focus on areas where wind farms are being developed,” said Andy.

Hendy Power’s brand development manager Bryan Ede is heading up the dealer network project and relaunching the range to the UK market. He said the addition of Baudouin opens up new areas of the marine market for Hendy Power.

“The engines are well placed to support the expanding wind farm industry in particular which needs cost effective, durable and reliable engines for its support vessels,” he said. “With Baudouin, we can now offer a complete range of engines with varying power ratings suitable for all duty cycles.”
