Oxe Diesel powerhead - Horizontal Diesel Engine from GM


The GM engine is converted for marine application by using separate systems for seawater, heat exchangers, intercooler and oil cooler and functionality that ensures that the engine, electrical system, fuel system and air intake built to withstand commercial marine conditions.

The high torque diesel engine engine enables high output alternator and cabin heat, which often is required by users in cold weather operations and power demanding equipment. All service points have been positioned toward the deck side of the unit for easy maintenance and service.

Diesel is less flammable, therefore safer to work with in hazardous environments. Diesel also provides higher efficiency and torque, ensuring enhanced range and lower fuel consumption. Increases range, facilitating extended operational periods and increasing time duration between refueling.

The use of highly refined automotive based engine technology provides for industry leading emission levels. It also allows the OXE Diesel to run on EN 590, ASTM D 975 No. 1 and No. 2, and JIS KK 2204, F54 and F75 which provides end users with high flexibility.
