Just ask our customers. When we asked Robert C. Dorn, CEO of Hyak Maritime, about the fuel economy of GE engines, he replied, “Best that I have witnessed in 35 years.” For example, “One of our customers made long international voyages to Africa in 2014 and relayed that daily fuel consumption was 2700 gallons. They had planned for 5000+ gallons per day based on decades of similar tows with EMD powered tugs.”


The John Finn (DDG 113) destroyer was delivered to the United States Navy by Huntington Ingalls Industries on December 7, 2016, the 75th anniversary of the attack on Pearl Harbor. Powered by GE’s Marine Solutions’ LM2500 marine gas turbines, the ship’s namesake helped shoot down Japanese warplanes during the attack and was the first Medal of Honor recipient of World War II.
