Commercial Users Turning to SeasAll Diesel Technology

MEDIA RELEASE 12 August 2014

Commercial Users Turning to More Environmentally Friendly Hyundai SeasAll Diesel Technology

More large-scale commercial operators are choosing Hyundai SeasAll’s diesel engines in their search for not only reliability, economy and performance but also environmental friendliness.

Sanford Aquaculture in Havelock at the top of New Zealand’s South Island recently installed a Hyundai SeasAll H380 into their 22m general-purpose workboat and mussel-seeding barge.

Sanford Aquaculture’s Chief Engineer Darren Brown says Hyundai’s reputation for clean and green low emission technology and the excellent performance of the H380 was significant factor in choosing Hyundai SeasAll.

“We pride ourselves on being an environmentally conscious company, particularly here in the Marlborough Sounds. Being able to fit an engine that has low emissions, whilst still delivering high torque was crucial,” says Brown.

From the vessels home base in Havelock, the barge will cruise for up to 6 hours to various mussel farms and worksites around the Pelorous and Marlborough Sounds often heavily laden. On water trials of the vessel with a 40-ton load on deck see’s it using just 32L of diesel per hour, at 1600rpm and travelling at 8.4knots.

“Our early assessment of the engine has been very good, in fact we’re yet to see any ‘smoke’ out of the exhaust stack. Now with the H380 fitted, the vessel is much more responsive and more powerful. There is a noticeable difference in the noise of the engine too. It’s significantly quieter, and is a lot better for the guys working on the deck all day and not having to combat harsh engine noises.”

“The ease of installation was fantastic as is the simplicity of being able to service the unit itself going forward. Also, integrating with our current onboard systems was very simple. Add to that the very affordable pricing of the engine and the exceptional extended warranty for this commercial application, it has been a very easy process transitioning from our last power plant.”

Allpower Marine Business Development Manager Mark Harrison says the Hyundai SeasAll’s common rail multiple injection features make the engine more environmentally friendly by minimizing the emissions of particulates and NOx (nitrogen-oxygen).

“The designs optimizse fuel injection and intake porting to improve combustion performance, particularly low-temperature combustion through lean air-fuel rationing,” says Harrison.

“Essentially, they are an exceptional engine package for users who are looking for not only performance, reliability and economy, but also those who are wanting an engine that is kinder to the environment.”

“We now have a large dealer network throughout New Zealand, Australia and the Pacific enabling users to have ready access to parts and service no matter where they are. What’s more, we are able to offer competitive parts pricing and an attractive warranty term for commercial users.”

Hyundai SeasAll also offers a larger 500hp engine, two of which are currently being installed into a commercial tourism boat in New Zealand.
