GE Transportation, in conjunction with its distributor Marinsa Peru, S.A., will supply Pesquera Diamante S.A., in Peru, with 7FDM medium-speed diesel engines. The engines will be used to power newly constructed boats and to repower Pesquera Diamante’s entire fleet of purseine net fishing boats.
GE will deliver eight-cylinder units rated at 1044 kW and 12-cylinder models rated at 1491 kW. New vessel construction and repowering of the Pesquera Diamante fleet has already begun, and will continue over a four-year period. All the diesel engines will be manufactured at GE’s Grove City, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. facility. Several of the engines for Pesquera Diamante will be shipped in 2005, while the remainder will be delivered over the next four years.
