GM experience:

Weve supplied more medium-speed

Diesels fo boats on Americas waterways than anyone else.

Vessels on America's inland waterways rely on their power plants for two things. Perform- ance. And reliability. And EMD

Diesels deliver.

Our engines have supplied over 100 million reliable, me- dium-speed Diesel horsepower — a world record in our size range. And a lot of that horse- power is at work keeping ships, barges and towboats productive.

But our experience is also based on a lot of other demand- ing applications. GM Diesels also go into oil rigs, power gen- eration systems, standby power units and off-highway trucks.

And we supply locomotives to railroads around the world.

A big reason why so many ship builders rely on EMD Die- sels is our experience in design- ing easily maintainable engines.

Unique design features cut maintenance time. Like the

PowerPak, a complete cylinder assembly which lets you cut rou- tine cylinder overhaul mainte- nance time in half.
