Customer notification *Covid-19*

As COVID-19 rapidly accelerates throughout the world and many countries have issued new directives in the past days in a response to the status of a pandemic. Many borders have been closed in Europe and in the America’s while China is slowly ramping up again. We would like to re-assure you that the SC Group (Supacat, SC Innovation, Proteum and Blackhill Engineering) are, also within these extraordinary circumstances, actively working on the situation to minimise the impact on our customers.

We consider it our responsibility and main concern to do our up most in order to maximise the health protection of our employees and customers. For this, we want to share with you a series of measures that we have actioned with immediate effect:

  • Supacat and SC Innovation will remain operational but due to the need to maximise Human Resources, will only be open for business Monday to Thursday.
  • Our Stores Department will remain operational with split teams to ensure colleague safety and productivity.
  • We are promoting homeworking for the foreseeable future for our employees, wherever possible. We will be able to maintain all of our services and operations under this new directive.
  • When homeworking is not possible and an employee needs to be on site, we have taken measures to limit exposures to others.
  • We are limiting all business trips to those strictly necessary for ensuring the continuation of the business.
  • We requested all our collaborators to comply with the WHO regulations.

 

We will continue to keep you informed of any changes, in line with government advice and we appreciate your understanding and collaboration in these difficult times, which we will overcome as soon as possible.

We wish you all the best and ensure you of our continued collaborative working relationship.

Proteum announces OXE Diesel 300 on sale in UK and Ireland

First 300HP diesel outboard production ready

12th February 2020, OXE Diesel UK & Ireland distributor, Proteum, is announcing at Skipper Expo it is taking orders for the new OXE Diesel 300, which starts production in May 2020 and becomes the first 300HP diesel outboard available to UK and Ireland commercial marine users.  OXE is the only range of high performance diesel outboards in production and in service.   

Proteum will be providing demos later in the year and will be helping customers to calculate potential cost savings for their user profile with Proteum’s Total Cost of Ownership information tool at the show.

OXE 300 also opens up the military market as it delivers the high power to weight ratio demanded by military operators, who require a viable alternative to petrol to comply with NATO’s single fuel policy which is driving the transition from petrol to diesel.  

OXE 300 continues the fuel efficient nature of the OXE Diesel range, consuming some 40% less fuel than a modern petrol outboard.  It meets the latest emission standards and reduces carbon dioxide by more than 35%, carbon monoxide by more than 99% and combined hydrocarbons and NOx by more than 70%, compared to petrol outboard standards (EPA-Tier 3, RCD SI-Outboard and CARB 3 star). 

The OXE design has matured to achieve the highest levels of reliability and robustness since the first prototype was displayed six years ago at HSBO Gothenburg by manufacturer Cimco Marine AB. The development of the 300HP version of OXE draws on the operative feedback from the 200 plus OXE Diesels in service. The range includes 125HP, 150HP, 175HP, 200HP and 300HP options to meet different user specifications. 

Neil Taylor, Head of Sales, Proteum, says,The OXE 300 sets the benchmark for 300hp outboards offering the best possible performance and economic advantages whilst complying with the most stringent environmental rules and regulations. For the commercial and military operator OXE 300 delivers endurance, reliability, power and control”.

The OXE Diesel is a cost effective alternative to petrol in total cost of ownership, benefitting from lower fuel costs, higher working efficiency, lower maintenance and ease of sourcing compared to petrol. Diesel’s lower volatility also makes it a safer option than a petrol alternative.   

Proteum is showing OXE Diesel on Stand 70 at Irish Skipper Expo in Limerick, 13-14 March 2020.
