Cimco Marine AB have completed preliminary study of 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine
Cimco Marine AB, which produces the world's first diesel engine in the higher power intervals and is listed on the Nasdaq First North, has conducted a preliminary study on a 3.0-liter turbodiesel engine from in cooperation with technology company Semcon. Cimco's current power head is a 2.0-liter four cylinder turbo, both for the 150 and 200 hp diesel engines. The preliminary study was positive and will result in the development of a prototype after the summer. Preliminary production start is scheduled for 2020.
– The outcome of the preliminary study is deemed positive and we will shortly move into the next phase, which involves the development of a prototype for practical tests in marine environments, says Cecilia Anderberg, CEO of Cimco Marine.
The preliminary study has been carried out in close collaboration with an expert group from Semcon with extensive experience in marine product marketing.
– At Semcon, we have an experienced and competent partner that complements our engineering and development team. Semcon has a long tradition of extensive expertise in engine development for marine applications. The cooperation has worked well, and we’re pleased with the outcome of the preliminary study, says Cecilia Anderberg.
The engine used for the preliminary study is a prestigious 3.0-liter twin turbo diesel engine, that will be modified and adapted for marine professional use.
– We have identified what actions are required to enter the next phase. Evaluation and experience from Cimco's existing diesel engine has been a key factor to why the preliminary study was positive and to why we choose to move forward, says Henrik Einarsson, Technical Leading Engineer at Semcon.
A larger and stronger engine is more durable and has a longer life span. Cimco already produces the strongest marine outboard diesel engine on the market today.
– Our estimation is that there is a need and demand for even stronger engines among our existing and potential customers, says Cecilia Anderberg.
