Impressive Marine Engines Heading from Italy to NZ to Fiji!

NZ owned & operated AB Equipment Marine & Industrial Power (Formerly Lees Group) recently received delivery of two Italian made FPT C90 engines. After a pre-commissioning check by the Lees Service team, they're heading to Fiji for use in passenger and freight service vessels.

With several FPT engines in operation, impressed with the reliability, smooth operation and overall performance, the owner is moving most of the fleet to this platform.
These two C90 engines have a displacement of 8.7L from an in-line 6-cylinder arrangement, with engines available from 380HP to 650HP.
These engines were chosen because they are an ideal and cost-effective solution for the commercial vessel that they will be powering in the islands but also suit many pleasure craft applications.
With a growing service network across NZ and the wider Pacific region, this is a fantastic solution!
