U.S.M.C. Buys New Engines From BRP For Light Boats

The United States Marine Corps awarded BRP a contract to purchase new engines for its fleet of Zodiac Combat Rubber Raiding Craft (CRRC). The contract for at least fift-five Multi Fuel Engines (MFE) is worth about $10 million. The engines are considered a commercial product and are the best MFE available that meet other military specifications.

The Marines will use these engines to power the CRRC to support insertion, patrol and reconnaissance operations along coastlines and rivers. Obviously with these types of missions reliability and performance are important. The engines may run on gasoline, kerosene and jet fuel. They come in two versions: One with an impeller and a conventional propeller model. The Marines are focusing on the impeller model. Because this is a commercially available product they can be delivered in less then six months to the customer.
