First units ready to ship

Having commenced production in May, the first units of the OXE 300 modular diesel outboard are now ready to ship.

“The OXE Diesel is designed to be a vital part of marine operations that will help reduce cost and minimise the impact on the environment. The OXE300 is a statement of this commitment, a result of everything we have learned up to this point” says Per Wigren CTO, OXE Marine AB.

OXE Marine believes the OXE300 will open up new markets, new vessels and more end users for the company, citing its torque and endurance as unrivalled and suitable for a variety of uses including transportation barges built for harbour work, carrying heavy loads, to governmental applications such as Coastguard or Search And Rescue where speed and range are essential.

The OXE300 derives its power from a 3-litre 6 cylinder bi-turbo automotive diesel engine. It produces 300hp at the propeller at 4200-4400 engine rpm, and 680NM (502ft-lb) of torque at the crank shaft at 1750rpm (more than 1000NM (740ft-lb) at the propeller). Comparing the new model to a 300hp petrol outboard, OXE Marine states the OXE300 offers over 40% reduced fuel consumption and 70% increase in operational range, reduction of CO2 by over 35%, CO1 with over 99% and HC and NOx with over 68%.

The production of the OXE300 now moves into ramp-up and will relocate to a new production facility in July. Distribution in the UK and Ireland is through Seawork exhibitor Proteum.
