Vetus launches new engine line
Dutch marine diesel manufacturer Vetus announced the launch of its VF Series, which it says is a line of lighter and quieter engines.
Models include a 4-cylinder (140-hp/170-hp) and a 5-cylinder (220-hp/250-hp). The VF Series uses high-pressure pumps to deliver fuel at pressure levels of more than 20,000 psi and electronically controlled injectors inject multiple bursts of fuel into the cylinder chamber, creating the smooth, quiet and efficient combustion that conserves fuel and reduces operating costs.
