V228 Diesel Engines and Generator Sets

  • For dependability, fuel efficiency and lower life-cycle costs, GE Transportation’s V228 Series Diesel Engine is among the best in its class. An alternative to high- speed, high-cost power, this engine delivers a 3 to 5% fuel savings and nearly double the mean time between maintenance cycles in a typical power operation. Its high-capacity turbocharger, electronic fuel injection and efficient combustion management make fuel and lube oil consumption among the lowest in the industry.
