fuel savings that exceed 25 gallons per hour...

Newt Marine Service cares about the environment. Heavily involved in restoring habitats for birds, animals fish habitats along the Missouri and Mississippi Newt Marine Service know firsthand the importance of a rugged, reliable and environmentally friendly engine. When the time came to repower its river tugs, Newt Marine wanted to remain true to the company’s environmentalist roots with  an environmentally friendly engine that offered fuel savings, low emissions, and reduced noise whilst also satisfying a need for reliability and ruggedness. Newt Marine Service, Dubuque, Iowa. Powered by Volvo Penta.

Newt Marine’s latest power upgrade was a D13 engine offering 500-horsepower with 1,800 rpm of torque. The D13, a 6-cylinder, 12.8-liter, direct-injected marine diesel engine, meets US EPA Tier III emission regulations. The engine produces low noxious emissions and no visible smoke, regardless of load. An electronic engine management system controls unit injectors and fuel distribution to optimize the fuel-air mixture and improve combustion. The result is high thermal efficiency, reduced exhaust emissions and " the fuel efficiency is unreal” say Company President Carter Newt, with fuel savings that exceed 25 gallons per hour. “We are averaging 13 gallons an hour on the new Volvo Penta engines" says Carter Newt, while "The old engines were right around 38 to 39 gallons per hour.”
