The common rail turbocharged diesel engine provides high efficiency and torque. This results in powerful thrust and acceleration, with the capacity to carry heavy loads.
The engine runs on a large variety of fuels: EN 590, ASTM D 975 No. 1 and No. 2, JIS KK 2204, F54 and F75.
The use of highly refined, modern automotive-based engine technology significantly reduces the fuel consumption and provides for industry-leading emission levels and subsequent minimized impact on the environment, significantly reducing not only CO2 but also CO1, HC and NOx, setting new standards for internal combustion engines within the global outboard engine industry.
The emission levels are approved by EPA TIER III, IMO TIER II (MARPOL VI TIER 2), RCD and CCS.
The OXE Diesel is designed to be safe in any environment. Diesel is a less flammable fuel and therefore much safer to work within all working environments. Robust design, low-speed control and quick-shift capability lead to safe operation in adverse conditions.
Easily accessible service points and a modular design create a user-friendly product. Fast interchangeable gear ratio allows for specific performance requirements. The reliable automotive powerhead keeps costs of maintenance and spare parts low. Longer service intervals ensure fewer disruptions in engine usage, increasing operational profitability and productivity.
Due to significantly lower fuel consumption than a comparable modern outboard, the OXE Diesel offers the market unprecedented range, enabling users to not only reach further but also giving the ability to refuel from larger diesel-powered vessels or marine-based platforms.
The OXE Diesel is the only outboard engine built particularly with commercial users in mind. It is designed for those who use their boat every day, no matter the conditions, and have to rely on the units for many hours every year. The innovation fills a new segment in the marine industry and cannot be compared to anything on the market today. Efficiency, Endurance, Power and Control.
I got on board a 21-foot Highfield 660 RIB with a 150-hp OXE diesel outboard on its transom, the first oil-burning outboard to meet EPA Tier 3 emissions standards in the U.S. OXE’s parent company, the Sweden-based Cimco Marine claims it’s 55 percent more fuel efficient than a 150-hp gas outboard—an eye-opening statement.
