The announcement was made by B.R. Stuart, president of Waukesha Engine, and Jose Maria Gutierrez Ascunce, president and director general of Guascor.

The Guascor F series, a 152 by 165-mm bore and stroke diesel, will become the basis for the new engine family, to be produced and marketed by both organizations. Four diesel models will be jointly developed to cover the 450 to 1,200- horsepower range at 1,800 rpm. At present, six-cylinder diesel engines are already in production at Guascor's Zumaia facility.

Waukesha will also undertake development of a parallel family of natural gas engines producing 360 to 1,000 hp, also at 1,800 rpm.

The new engine series will be marketed worldwide by Waukesha and Guascor, concentrating on their respective traditional markets.

Principal applications are power generation, oil and gas equipment including drilling rigs and gas compressors; also marine propulsion and ships service power.

Waukesha Engine services the worldwide petroleum, marine and power generation markets with a broad line of diesel and gas prime movers and generator sets from 50 to 5,000 hp.
