MTU Detroit Diesel will feature three of its most popular marine engines – the Series 4000, Series 2000 and Series 60 – at the International WorkBoat Show, booth #621, in New Orleans, December 1–3, 2010.

MTU will also be highlighting its control systems, genuine parts and service products at the show.

The MTU family of engines for commercial marine applications includes the Series 4000, the Series 2000 and the Series 60 engines. On display will be the eight-cylinder Series 4000 “Iron Men” engine, which is EPA Tier 2-certified and covers a power range of 1,000 to 1,340 bhp (746–1,000 kW). As with the other configurations of the Series 4000, the 8V offers low fuel consumption, extended maintenance intervals and maximized availability and reliability. The Series 4000 engine is also available in 12V and 16V configurations, covering a total power range from 1,000 to 3,000 bhp (746 to 2,240 kW).

MTU will also be displaying its EPA Tier 2-certified Series 2000 engine as well as the Series 60 engine, which is also EPA Tier 2-certified and has long been a mainstay in the workboat market. The Series 2000 M61 is available in both 12V and 16V configurations and covers a range of 805 to 1,070 bhp (600–800 kW). MTU will also feature customer testimonial videos at the booth.

MTU Detroit Diesel’s commercial marine sales manager, Jeff Sherman, will participate in a panel discussion on predictive and preventive maintenance as part of the WorkBoat Professional Series. The discussion will cover how preventive maintenance can benefit a marine operation, a discussion of tools of the trade and whether companies should purchase their own maintenance equipment. The panel discussion will be held on Thursday, December 2, from 2:30 to 3:30 p.m. in Conference Room A. A white paper by MTU on preventive maintenance will be available as a handout at the presentation.

Sherman works out of MTU’s new Gulf Coast Sales and Operations Center in St. Rose, Louisiana, near New Orleans. This new office is the North American headquarters for MTU’s commercial marine business. It is dedicated to serving commercial marine operators on the Gulf Coast and Inland Rivers.
