Leading Journal of the Irish & UK Fishing Industries

Leading marine distributors, Proteum, will bring their wealth of knowledge and experience in marine diesel engines to the Irish Skipper Expo once again.

Based in Southampton, and with an ever-growing list of products available to purchase, the company deliver marine diesel engines and support services to their worldwide customer base throughout the year.

As UK & Ireland distributors for OXE Diesel Outboard and BUKH marine diesel engines plus Barracuda diesel Jet Ski’s, Proteum also supply many marine products including ZF Gearboxes, Glendenning Control heads and Konrad stern drives.

Simon Barnett, Proteum Sales Manager, says that their main focus at the Irish Skipper expo this year will be to give customers a clear understanding of how to improve their fuel economy.

“We will have a demonstration OXE 200hp diesel outboard on the stand, where visitors can view the engine architecture to better understand how converting from petrol to diesel outboards can improve their fuel economy by over 40% and reducing emissions by over 90%.”

As well as this, Proteum have also recently supplied OXE diesel outboards to be installed aboard a new design of CTV (crew transfer vessel) operated by Northstar Renewables, which will provide support to offshore wind sites along the East coast of the UK. They look forward to furthering discussions about offshore development in the Ireland at the Irish Skipper Expo.
