Yanmar commercial range launch at Seawork
In a joint initiative with Yanmar Europe B.V., E. P. Barrus Ltd will introduce a new range of Yanmar commercial high speed engines at Seawork 2011.
This new range of Yanmar marine diesel engines opens up numerous opportunities for both companiess to develop their commercial business throughout the UK and Europe. The commercial marine diesel engine sector is already dominated by Yanmar in the Japanese and Asian commercial markets.
The Yanmar high speed diesels offer a propulsion and auxiliary power range from 12hp (8.8kW) to 911hp (670kW) with the reliability, durability and efficiency that are the trademarks of the Yanmar marine diesel engine range. Compliant with all European emissions standards, this engine range also meets the latest IMO Tier II regulations and Yanmar has type approval by the six major shipping classification societies including, LRS, ABS, and BV.
Suitable for a wide range of commercial applications including offshore support vessels, fishing craft, ferries, tugs and multi-purpose workboats, these engines offer the commercial user the benefits of easy installation and simple maintenance.
The Yanmar 6AYM-WGT 911hp (670kW) six cylinder engine and the 6HYM-WET 700hp (515kW) six cyclinder engine suitable for fast patrol boats will be on show at Seawork on the Barrus stand (Q2) for the first time in Europe.
“We have already sold a number of these engines to commercial operators in the UK and we are confident that the opportunities are there to grow and develop this important sector of the market, said Ian Nuttall, general manager of the Marine Division at E. P. Barrus. “We are looking forward to supporting our commercial customers with a wider choice of engines all backed by our extensive Yanmar dealer network, offering a professional technical after sales service with a 24 hour parts supply.”
The Yanmar commercial marine diesel engine range will be further strengthened with the introduction of the 12AY Series engine at the end of 2011. With a maximum output of 1,340kW (1,822hp), this power horse will target an even wider range of commercial vessels.
