GE has been designing and building high-performance diesel engines for more than 40 years. Today, we’re one of the leading manufacturers of medium-speed diesel engines in the world. GE's family of medium speed marine diesel engines includes 8, 12 and 16 cylinder V configurations, as well as inline 6 and 8 cylinder configurations. With over 15,000 engines operating worldwide, working in some of the most challenging industrial environments, GE Engines are dependable, long lasting, durable and efficient. These high compression EFI engines deliver reduced fuel consumption, improved reliability and decreased emissions.
V250 Diesel Engine Advantages
6.5% fuel savings while meeting Tier 2
The V250 proves it’s possible to meet the emissions compliance requirements of U.S. EPA Tier 2 without sacrificing fuel efficiency. In this new engine, improved fuel management, a new combustion system design and refined cooling together deliver fuel savings of as much as 6.5%, compared to our earlier engine designs. At the same time, the V250 meets the EPA’s new, more stringent emissions guidelines as well as Marpol Annex VI standards.
25% greater power density in a compact design
A relatively large bore engine with a narrow overall width and lighter weight, the V250 packs a lot of power into its footprint. Among other features, its inlet and exhaust manifolds are compactly arranged between cylinder banks. Where space is at a premium, the trim design and high power-to-weight ratio of the V250 give it a clear edge.
100% engineered for reliability and maintainability
The V250 is a brand new engine―designed not only for higher efficiency and lower emissions but also for improved reliability and maintainability. Every critical component and system of the V250 was engineered, manufactured, tested, refined and validated extensively for reliability. For easier maintenance, a segmented camshaft, sectional exhaust manifold, unitized power assembly and other features simplify component removal and replacement.
