Houston, Texas (PRWEB) May 14, 2014
Waukesha-Pearce Industries (WPI) has been named a U.S.-based distributor for GE Transportation, a division of General Electric Company (GE) and a global technology leader and supplier to the railroad, mining, marine, stationary power, and drilling industries. Already an approved GE partner, WPI will collaborate with GE Transportation’s Stationary Power division, selling and packaging V250 and V228 diesel engines.
“We are honored to be awarded this new distributor partnership with GE Transportation,” said Fred Stow, Director of Sales, WPI. “This move will allow us to build upon our years of experience in the engine marketplace, leveraging our packaging capabilities and strengthening our relationships with our existing customers in the EPC (Engineering Procurement Construction) industry by providing them with additional value and solutions in the power generation segment.”
The new GE V250 engine series provides customers with increased reliability, fuel efficiency and compliance with United States Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) emissions standards. GE’s four-stroke, turbocharged and after-cooled medium-speed diesel V228 engines are designed for the most demanding applications.
All GE diesels feature high-capacity turbochargers, efficient combustion systems and EFI systems, and are integrated into GE marine and stationary systems to offer superior fuel and lube oil efficiency while meeting strict emissions levels.
“With a heavy concentration of customers—and a long history of cultivating important business relationships in the Houston area—Waukesha-Pearce Industries is a natural fit as an approved distributor for GE Transportation engines,” said Dave Zimmerman, Global Sales Leader at GE Transportation.
GE Transportation’s diesel family of medium-speed engines includes 8-, 12- and 16-cylinder V configurations ranging between 1,400 to 5,682 horsepower for industrial applications.
WPI is a world-class leader in engine services for the oil and gas and industrial/commercial markets for power generation, gas compression, engine sales, pumps and other related applications and serves more than 30 states, with the presence and expertise to keep equipment operating at maximum uptime.
