BRP signs deal to power Canadian fleet

The Eastern Canada Response Corp. selected BRP's Evinrude E-TEC engines to repower its 79-boat fleet.

The contract, with more than $1.48 million, was awarded to BRP based on Evinrude outboards' low cost of ownership and high environmental standards.

The Eastern Canada Response Corp. operates six centers in eastern Canada and provides marine oil spill response services in all navigable waters east of the Rocky Mountains. Boats powered by the 30-hp to 225-hp Evinrude E-TEC engines will be at the forefront of chemical and oil spill cleanup throughout Canada and the United States.

“In choosing Evinrude outboard engines, our organization examined the projected low cost of ownership, the low environmental impact and the easy storage of Evinrude E-TEC engines as these were important factors in our decision,” Eastern Canada Response Corp president James Carson said in a statement. “BRP’s commitment to this project was clear from the start and the engine replacements were completed on time without compromising ECRC’s capability.”

BRP has a long history with oil spill response companies. In addition to the Eastern Canada Response Corp., several companies, including Alaska Clean Seas, Delaware Bay and River Cooperative and Chevron Oil, power their fleet with Evinrude E-TEC engines.
