Engine Design – Robust engine block designed for continuous duty operation and long life. Metric o-ring seals and edge molded gaskets eliminate fluid leaks. Ductile single-piece iron piston design with hardened liners and nitride coated rings for exceptional durability. No matter the vessel, Cummins will keep you always on.

Fuel System – Modular Common Rail Fuel System, including New Tier 4 Fuel Pump with Rock Catcher, provides constant high injection pressure regardless of engine speed or load condition. Benefits include low noise and vibration for quiet operation, idle stability and improved low-end torque.

Cooling System – Low temperature aftercooling. Engine-mounted titanium plate heat exchanger provides superior durability with minimal maintenance requirements.

Exhaust System – Dry exhaust manifold with water shielding for reduced fuel consumption and improved performance.

Air System – Cummins turbochargers optimized for marine applications. Two pump, two loop, low temperature aftercooling for efficient operation and optimization of performance.

Lubrication System – Standard capacity (261 L [69 gal]) or high capacity (378 L [100 gal]) marine grade oil pan. Pre-lube starter protects engine from damage due to dry starts.

Electronics – 24v Quantum System electronics feature a proven ECM to monitor operating parameters, while providing diagnostics, prognostics and complete engine protection. Simplified electrical customer interface box for all vessel connections to reduce installation complexity.

Certifications – Complies with EPA Tier 4 / IMO Tier III emissions regulations. Designed to meet the International Association of Classification Societies (IACS) and SOLAS requirements. 
Consult your local Cummins professional for a complete listing of available class approvals.

Aftertreatment System – Life to overhaul aligned with engine LTO, lower DEF consumption, (operates with 32.5% or 40% DEF), higher sulfur tolerance, and keeping idle up to speed.
