Mitsubishi Turbocharger and Engine America, Inc. has appointed Cascade Engine Center, Seattle, Wash, as its Marine Engine Division’s new U.S. West Coast engine distributor effective August 11, 2020.
Cascade Engine Center will have responsibility for Alaska, Washington State, Oregon, California, and Hawaii. The company has been active in the commercial marine business since 1961.
“The addition of the Mitsubishi heavy duty engine lineup to Cascade Engine Center will complement our current commercial engine business, allowing us to support most commercial marine applications on the West Coast,” said Tim A. Hess, President of Cascade Engine Center. “We are excited about the opportunity of working with Mitsubishi.”
Mitsubishi heavy duty commercial marine engines range from a 14.6 liter, 429 hp in line 6-cylinder marine propulsion engines to a 65-liter, V-16, 1,676 hp marine propulsion engine suitable for a wide range of heavy-duty applications.
“Mitsubishi engines are all EPA compliant and meet EPA Tier 3 and Tier 4 emission requirements, with simple mechanical engine controls,” said Mitsubishi Marine Manager, Rodrigo Teixeira, “and we typically offer 20% or more displacement than most of our competition.” These features make the Mitsubishi propulsion engines suitable for many heavy-duty applications such as pushboats, tugs, fishing vessels, and passenger and car ferries.
