Baudouin Engine Donation to Help La. Students

BAUDOUIN MARINE ENGINE 6 M26.3_1

Students in the Marine Diesel Engine Technician Program at Louisiana’s Fletcher Technical Community College will get hands-on repair experience thanks to four diesel engines donated by Baudouin Marine’s U.S. distributor Motor Services Hugo Stamp Group.

The 6M26.3 Baudouin engines donated to the school will enable Fletcher students to work on the same engines currently in use by four Louisiana shipyards engaged in building vessels.

“The value to students of being able to work on these engines is much more than just nominal. These engines will enable them to expand their knowledge of innovators in the industry in terms of electronic engine components, hybrid systems and alternative fuels,” MSHS Group territory manager Dual Yelverton said in a statement.

Based in southern France, Baudouin has been manufacturing marine engines for more than 100 years. MSHS Group and Baudouin regularly work closely with customers, manufacturers, shipyards and naval architects in Louisiana.

“As an engine manufacturer, our investment in STEM projects is a key aspect of our strategy,” Baudouin’s Americas sales director Mehdi Kebaili said. “Baudouin is thrilled to be participating in this exciting initiative to shape the next generation of maritime engineers.’’
