Power Profile

Yanmar Australia

Re-powered in July/August of 2014, the Tas Ports owned and operated pilot vessel "TAMAR" was originally powered by a pair of Cummins 6CTA series engines. The new 6CXBM-GT(M) series engines in conjunction with the Twin Disc "QuickShift" transmissions have given the vessel a new lease of life. Top speed and mid-range cruise speeds are all up on original performance numbers and the crew have reported that the engines, as well as the drive line are a lot smoother and quieter.
