Production OXE Diesel Outboard Motor makes DSEi debut07-09-2017
The full production OXE Diesel 200hp high performance outboard diesel engine makes its defence show debut at DSEi demonstrated by UK & Ireland distributor, Proteum Ltd. The OXE Diesel engine will be powering a JBT Marine 7.8m Ballistic Rigid Inflatable Boat (RIB) to showcase OXE’s horsepower, range and extreme environment performance for military and security operations.
Since Proteum launched OXE Diesel into the defence market at DSEi 2015 as a pre-production unit, OXE has entered service worldwide in a variety of applications and production is accelerating to meet growing demand. Future power options from 100hp to 400hp are planned by OXE manufacturer, CIMCO Marine, which will offer further applications.
OXE runs on NATO F75/76 fuels and all other standard EN 590 diesel fuels, providing military operators with a viable diesel outboard as NATO’s single fuel policy to improve safety and interoperability continues to drive the transition away from petrol to diesel.
“OXE is fast establishing itself as the credible production diesel outboard of this horsepower available to military and security operators”, said Jeremy Paul, General Manager of Proteum, a SC Group company, which provides sales, support, spares, maintenance and training for marine products.
