New Vector 1100 Engines extremely tight deadline." Van Isle Barge Services' Fairbanks (to be renamed Van Isle Link) will employ an 8-cylinder GE 7FDM diesel engine, rated at 1,750 hp at 900 rpm. This barge operator expects to commission the new vessel in March 2007. The Sea-link Marine vessel will use GE's 7FDM 12-cylinder diesel engine rated at 2,500 hp at 1,050 rpm. The engine was delivered to Sea-Link Marine on September 30. It is being applied as part of a repowering project underway on Hyannis, a decommissioned United States Navy YTB tug. The tug is expected to undergo sea trials by the end of 2006. The ATB Van Isle Link and Hyannis combination will augment Van Isle Barge Services existing fleet and provide cargo services between Vancouver, British Columbia and Vancouver Island. Both diesel engines were built at GE's Grove City, Pennsylvania manufacturing facility. GE now offers its new V250 engine series, which is in compliance with U.S. Environmental Protection Agency Tier II emissions standards. The new 250 millimeter bore, 12 cylinder engine produces 4265 continuous hp/3180 kW at 1050 rpm, 4070 hp/3035 kW at 1000 rpm, and 3665 hp/2732 kW at 900 rpm. The 16V250 engine produces 5685 continuous hp/4237 kW at 1050 rpm, 5415 hp/4038 kW at 1000 rpm, and 4870 hp/3632 kW at 900 rpm. ® Iveco Motors of North America announced the first North American marine diesel engines of its new introduced Vector family, the Vector 1100 engines, model V08 ENT M11. "With their high horsepower for lower cost, fuel efficiency and longer interval maintenance schedule, our Vector marine diesel engines are great fit for the marine marketplace," says Vincenzo Perrone, General Manager, Iveco Motors of North America. The Vector engines are eight cylinders, and rated for 1100 mhp at 2300 rpm. They feature a V-type cylinder configuration with 4-valves per cylinder. Unlike other engines in their class, the Vector family has total fuel system control due to their high-pressure common rail injection system. This system also gives the engines an excellent fuel consumption rate and unbeatable power, while still meeting current EPA emission regulations. The engines compact structure allows large displacement and big power to fit into small engine rooms. The Vector engines are turbo-charged with an air-to-water aftercooler.

GE's customers for this project are Van Isle Barge Services, Surrey, British Columbia, and SeaLink Marine Services, New Westminster, British Columbia, GE. "This ATB project marks several milestones for GE," said John Manison, manager of GE's Marine & Stationary Power business, headquartered in Erie, Pennsylvania. "We were able to rapidly deliver Sea-Link Marine's 12cylinder diesel engine 90 days after they placed the order with GE. Typical delivery time of an engine in the marine industry is at least 12 to 18 months, so we are delighted to be able to meet Sea-Link Marine's December, 2006 · MarineNews · 29
