CIMCO Marine’s OXE Diesel high-performance outboard engine is now available in Asia and is being presented here by Tractors Singapore (Hall B, Stand B243), which has been appointed the official distributor for south-east Asia and the Maldives. The China Engineers company is the distributor for mainland China, Hong Kong, Macau and Taiwan.
A marinised modern GM automotive engine, OXE Diesel is setting new standards for safety, durability, fuel efficiency and low emissions.
It fulfils the NATO ‘single-fuel’ directive and is optimised to reduce total life-cycle costs. It is also the only outboard diesel engine approved by the EU Recreational Craft Directive, which sets technical, safety and environmental standards for the trade of boats, personal watercraft, marine engines and components in Europe.
The engine has been converted for marine use by employing separate systems for seawater, heat exchangers, intercooler and oil cooler, and functionality that ensures the electrical system, fuel system and air intake withstand marine conditions. The reduction in fuel consumption and the hydro-dynamically optimised lower housing increase range and allow for extended operational time between refuelling. OXE Diesel is aimed at military, rescue and commercial applications.
