THE DIESEL ENGINE
The engine on the OXE is a marinized modern automotive engine that provides quietness, effectiveness and high torque. It has been redesigned to arrange all service points on the front of the unit so that maintenance and service can be performed on the water. The dry sump system allows for rolling in heavy seas, tilting and trimming.
The power head is a proven robust diesel engine developed by GM group, mounted horizontally and marinized with a closed circuit coolant system inspired by modern inboard technology. It allows for high power alternator and cabin heat which often is requested by users in cold weather and power demanding equipment.
“THE ENGINE ON THE OXE IS A MARINIZED AUTOMOTIVE BASED ENGINE THAT PROVIDES FOR FIRE SAFETY, CABIN HEAT, EFFECTIVENESS AND HIGH TORQUE”
TURBO CHARGED DIESEL
The engine is a well proven turbo charged diesel engine with high pressure direct fuel injection. The GM engine has been converted for marine application by using separate systems for seawater, heat exchangers, intercooler and oil cooler and functionality that ensures that the engine, electrical system, fuel system and air intake will withstand marine conditions. All service points are located on the front of the engine for easy access so they can be changed directly from the boat by the users.
The use of highly refined automotive based engine technology provides for industry leading emission levels.
Emission levels are approved by: EPA TIER 3, IMO TIER 2 and RCD.
” INNOVATIONS ARE REQUIRED TO FILL THE DEMANDS OF THE MARINE MARKET. A NEW CONCEPT CAPABLE OF COPING WITH THE HIGH TORQUE OUTPUTS FROM MODERN POWER-HEADS. “
Diesel provides higher efficiency and torque, which give enhanced acceleration and lower fuel consumption. The engine runs on EN 590, ASTM D 975 No. 1 and No. 2, and JIS KK 2204.EN 590, which creates high flexibility.
Diesel is a less flammable fuel and therefore safer to work with in hazardous environments. The OXE Diesel is designed to be safe in any environment. The reduction in fuel consumption and the hydro dynamically optimized lower housing increases range, contributes towards greater distances to be covered safely and allows for extended operational time between refueling.
