Cummins Inc. says its X15 marine engine now meets safety standards for ABS, BV, RINA and DNV class society certifications, giving boaters peace of mind on the water.
“Classification society certifications are integral to the safety of the commercial marine industry,” Eric Marini, global marine product planning and management leader, stated in a press release.
The X15-classed engine is expected to be in full production late this year after its initial release in late 2018. Its features include engine protection capabilities; fuel-sensor, gear-pressure and temperature monitoring; as well as digital start/stop functionality.
Power range is 450 to 600 horsepower, which Cummins says is the highest power density for continuous applications in the engine’s category. Weight is 3,800 pounds. Constant-speed auxiliary ratings are available at 50 hertz or 60 hertz with 507 horsepower and the option to pair an alternator or Stamford AvK product.
Since its initial release, the X15 has used Cummins’ XPI fuel system for an efficient fuel burn, clean emissions and optimized fuel economy. The engine is now available to pair with Cummins’ PrevenTech Marine, an integrated digital system for end-to-end equipment health management.
What’s the warranty on the Cummins X15? It’s 24 months or 8,000 hours for heavy-duty applications, and 24 months or unlimited hours for continuous duty.
