V228 Diesel Engine Advantages
They work harder
GE's V228 engines are high-compression, four-stroke, medium-speed, turbocharged, electronically fuel injected, class-approved engines designed and built for rigorous marine applications. Our medium-speed engines are proven reliable, with more than 150 million hours of service. They are also among the most fuel-efficient engines in their class.
They go longer
With rugged construction and quality-assured parts, V228 engines are capable of operating cost-effectively for more than 20 years. Most components can go without overhaul for up to 40,000 hours on a typical marine duty cycle. Among medium-speed engines on the market, V228 engines offer one of the lowest life-cycle costs.
They run smarter
A high-capacity turbocharger, electronic fuel injection and efficient combustion management come together in V228 engines to make fuel and lube oil consumption as well as emissions among the lowest in the industry. V228 engines comply with MARPOL Annex VI and U.S. EPA Marine Tier 1 and Tier 2 requirements.
