Marine Propulsion: FPT Boosts Prospects with Fincantieri Partnership
FPT Industrial announced a partnership with Fincantieri, as FPT has been chosen by Fincantieri as a preferred partner to supply tailor-made powertrain solutions for its customers. The partnership includes FPT Industrial marine engines and auxiliaries, as well as ground power generators, and is dedicated to the worldwide market of commercial, patrolling and special applications, covering power ranges up to 1,000 hp.
“We are proud to become a preferred supplier of Fincantieri: this strategic partnership confirms our leadership in powertrain technology for marine applications” said Massimo Rubatto, FPT Industrial Vice President, Global Sales. “We are always focused on our customers’ needs, developing tailor-made products. Thanks to our advanced solutions, we can provide our customers with the best powertrain configuration for high performance boats in all applications, even the most extreme. For example, we powered the world’s fastest diesel powerboat this year with our Cursor 16 engine, achieving a speed of 277.5 km/h and breaking a Guinness World Record.”
