Paxman Diesels Limited, part of the international company GEC
Alsthom, manufactures high-speed
Valenta and Vega diesels in the power range of 750 to 3,650 kw (1,006 to 4,895 hp). Paxman en- gines have been particularly popu- lar in patrol boat and minesweeper vessel applications.
In the U.S., product support is provided by Paxman Diesel USA of
Houston, Texas. The company of- fers complete after-sales support service for North America.
The most recent Paxman patrol craft success is the prestigious con- tract to supply Valenta propulsion engines to the U.S. Navy for its new
Patrol Boat, Coastal (PBC) program.
The Valenta 16RP200CM propul- sion engines, four per vessel set, for the PBC program are currently be- ing delivered to Lockport, La., ship- builder BollingerMachine Shop &
Shipyard, Inc. The first of the 170- foot vessels was recently delivered.
These engines are the first of a total of 52 Valentas, comprising 13 boat sets, which Paxman is sup- plying to the U.S. Navy.
Prior to the PBC engine con- tract, Paxman received an order from the Royal Navy of Oman to supply Valenta engines for the 56- meter high-speed Province Class ves- sels. Each of the vessels will be powered by four Valenta 18-cylinder propulsion units, each rated at 4,550 bhp.

In an effort to broaden its market appeal, Mitsubishi Heavy Industries
Ltd. extended the power range at lower end of its two-stroke UEC en- gine series with a new small bore diesel design. The Japanese firm added the330-mmbore UEC 33LSII, which is offered in four- and eight- cylinder versions, covering an out- put range from 1,590-5,870 bhp at 158-210 rpms. The new model has a longer stroke as compared to the 370-mm stroke model, which was the smallest bore model in the UEC family prior to the UEC33LSII's in- troduction. The longer stroke pro- vides enhanced fuel economy and the new design is said to offer high reliability and simplified mainte- nance.
Earlier, Mitsubishihad added two large bore models to the UEC series for the bulker and very large crude carrier markets. One of the models, a 30,000-bhp six-cylinder 850-mm bore UEC85LSII, was recently com- missioned in a Japanese VLCC. The other model, the 750-mm bore UEC 75LSII, was installed in the first of seven AP Moller VLCCs being built by the Odense yard in Denmark.
