SPP is one of more than 20 Cimco global partners selected to test the new engine technology in a number of different environments and applications.

Even though the new engines are not yet in production and will only be available to the market in 2016, they have already attracted the attention of the international maritime media who anticipate that the combination of inboard diesel type power and outboard flexibility will appeal to the commercial market.

SPP, as Cimco Diesel Marine AB’s official supplier of the OXE Diesel S-BPU engines in Sub-Saharan Africa, is planning a number of product demonstrations in key locations throughout Africa, including the Cape Town Boat Show in October 2015.
