UK Engineering Support, Same Day Parts Supply, Class leading fuel economy, IMO Tier 3 Emissions, compatible with HVO fuels were all at the top of the requirements for Richard from Jet stream Tours.


The owner operator contacted Watermota after feedback from a workboat operator in the local area that had taken delivery of three new vessels, all equipped with Doosan IMO Tier 3 engines, D-I Industrial marine transmissions and steering systems.


Richard was keen to move forward with the best possible machinery for the company’s flagship vessel when repowering from a pair of 1980’s DAF marine engines. The Watermota team discussed Richard`s requirements with him and offered advice on installation and the best scope of supply for this application.


With the established Watermota dealer network and factory trained engineers backed up by a UK based parts warehouse allowing same day delivery of parts and importantly for the customers’ requirements compatibility of the Doosan electronic engines with HVO fuels ensured all boxes were ticked and the project moved forward into the machinery selection stage


The diverse range of power outputs from the electronic engine range enabled Watermota to offer a near identical match to the existing engine output and engine speed meaning existing hardware could be reused in an efficient manner.


The engines were delivered to the customer and once installed were commissioned by Doosan trained engineers. The Doosan electronic marine engines with their SCR systems and combined with the use of HVO fuels delivers the lowest possible emissions without compromising on power delivery at practical engine speeds. The customer and passenger experience has also been improved thanks to the engines smooth and quiet operation and the noise reduction qualities of the SCR exhaust systems.
