BRP said its Evinrude brand donated outboard engines to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences for use on two research vessels.

The engines were provided as part of Evinrude’s continuing support of local education and preservation of the marine environment.

“We are very grateful to the team at Evinrude for their support of our research programs,” J. Val Klump, associate dean of research and senior director of the School of Freshwater Sciences, said in a statement. “Our faculty and students conduct vital research on topics such as water quality, pollution identification and prevention, and improved fish breeding for urban aquaculture.”

The projects affect the environment, the economy and the quality of life for millions of people locally and globally, now and for future generations, Klump said.

“Our research would not be possible without the support of like-minded and forward-thinking sponsors like Evinrude,” Klump said. “This is why their engines, which are the cleanest combustion engines on the market, are a perfect complement to our work.”

“So much of our innovation is focused on the efficiency of our Evinrude E-TEC engines and the impact of internal combustion on the environment,” said Christopher Berg, global director of marketing and strategic planning at Evinrude.

“We are dedicated to providing the most fuel-efficient and highest-performing outboard engines and are proud to say that our Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines have the lowest emissions of any combustion outboard on the market. We are proud to be associated with the current and future education and research programs conducted by University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee, given our shared goals.”

The School of Freshwater Sciences at the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee is the only graduate school in North America solely dedicated to freshwater issues and the largest water-focused academic research institution on the Great Lakes.

Founded in 2009 on a legacy of freshwater research that began 50 years ago with the Center for Great Lakes Studies, the school studies the largest freshwater system on the Earth’s surface, as well as urban rivers, storm and wastewater infrastructure, groundwater and inland lakes, aquaculture and fisheries, water robotics, and human and environmental health.
