Cox Powertrain - DSEI: First Look at World's Highest Power Density Professional Diesel Outboard for DSEI Visitors

DSEI 2017, ExCel, London, 12th to 15th September, Stand S10-360

Tuesday 12th September 2017 – British diesel engine innovator, Cox Powertrain, will show a full-size model of its game changing high powered, low weight 300hp diesel outboard engine, the CXO300, at DSEI this week.

It is the first time a full size replica of the CXO300 has been shown at the leading defence industry event allowing visitors to see how much the ground-breaking engine design and layout has evolved since the previous show in 2015.

Backed by the UK Ministry of Defence (MoD), the original concept of the CXO300 is based on a supercharged, two-stroke diesel engine. It has been developed for commercial, government and military applications, where performance, durability and fuel efficiency are paramount. NATO’s single fuel policy, which aims to completely eliminate the use of gasoline from military use, means that a viable high powered diesel outboard engine such as the CXO300 will be of specific interest to Navies, Coast Guards and other governmental organisations around the world for use on their fast response vessels.

Light in weight, the CXO300 offers the flexibility and convenience of a high powered gasoline outboard engine with the diesel economy and reliability of an inboard. The engine topology provides power-to-weight ratio comparable with high-performance gasoline engines, whilst delivering diesel fuel consumption and a package volume around half that of a state-of-the-art diesel engine. Crucially for military applications, it also offers much longer service intervals for heavy use, vital when lives are on the line.

Summer 2017 saw the completion of a strong line-up of US and European distributors for the Shoreham-by-Sea, UK based company who is keen to achieve this standard globally ahead of engine launch.

Now in its pre-production gamma phase after an intense development programme, the CXO300 is set for a 2018 launch following a series of trials and an extensive demonstration programme.
