Marine Sales Portfolio Increased

Design focused on emissions reduction, decreased fuel and lube oil consumption

Posted on December 3, 2013

Electro-Motive Diesel (EMD), part of Progress Rail Services Corp. (Progress Rail), has announced that MaK Asia will be adding the EMD Series 710 medium-speed, two-cycle engine to their marine sales portfolio.

The design of the Series 710 began with IMO Tier 2 regulations and focused on significantly reducing engine nitrogen oxides (NOx) and particulate matter (PM) emissions while representing decreases in fuel and lube oil consumption from prior generations, the company said. This was achieved through enhancement of existing internal engine components, EMD said.

LaGrange, Illinois, U.S.A.-based EMD is a designer and original equipment manufacturer (OEM) of diesel-electric locomotives for all commercial railroad applications and a global provider of diesel engines for marine propulsion, offshore and land-based oil well drilling rigs and stationary power generation.

Progress Rail, a wholly owned subsidiary of Caterpillar Inc., is a supplier of remanufactured locomotive and railcar products and services to the railroad industry, operating an extensive rail service and supply networks in North America, the company said
