By selecting Wartsila 20 engines for the diesel-electric generating sets, the owner will benefit from their robustness and reliability, which has been proven by the fact that more than 4000 of the engines have been delivered since this model was introduced to the market in the early 1990s.
The report also stated that much like the CNG-electric hybrids, the diesel-electric hybrid Starbus will have a smaller diesel engine than conventional buses, resulting in both lower emissions and a drop in fuel consumption.
The company is the only diesel-electric locomotive manufacturer to have produced more than 70,000 engines and has the largest installed base of diesel-electric locomotives in both North America and internationally, he added .
The first truly mass-produced diesel-electric road freight locomotives were sold in 1939 by GM's Electro-Motive Division, which today is known as Electro-Motive Diesel.
There is modern technology available in the field of air-independent propulsion that would allow diesel-electric submarines a limited patrol range beneath the Arctic ice cap.
Diesel-electric submarines using air independent propulsion can remain submerged for extended periods of up to two or three weeks, and unlike nuclear submarines, diesel-electric submarines can "bottom out" or rest on the ocean floor.
Buoyed by the success of the prototypes, NYCT has ordered an additional 325 diesel-electric buses.
