Series 4000 M05-N Pure Gas Marine Engine

A variant of the Series 4000, the M05-N offers diesel performance with gas benefits. It is designed with a multi-point gas injection system to enhance the engine’s dynamic acceleration behaviour and double-walled gas fuel lines to ensure no need for additional safety precautions. Our pure gas engine matches the performance and safety of the regular Series 4000. Additionally, the use of gas instead of diesel means lower emissions and a better overall climate footprint.
