New 300hp (224 kW) Diesel Outboard

At the recent international defence exhibition (DSEi) in London, a new lightweight diesel engine was on display from Cox Powertrain developed with Ricardo UK. The power dense of 300hp (224 kW)/4,000rpm is a 3.6 liter supercharged 2-stroke diesel engine, weighing 136 kg. The four cylinder, eight piston engine module features an opposed piston (OP) configuration and uses a Scotch Yoke cranking, saving weight and moving parts. A two module variant will produce 700+hp. Some variants may be able to deliver up to 900 hp. Beta testing will commence in 2014 with an estimated launch date for the outboard motor version in 2016. [More]
