30HPE Marine Engine


Models: 30HPE 250 - 30HPE 225 - 30HPE 180 - 30HPE 145

FNM® 4-cylinder 30HPE engine is conceived according best-seller F1C platform requirements. The engine uses a common-rail fuel injection system controlled by an electronic control unit developed in house, especially made for it.

The result is a high power-to-displacement ratio unit.


ECU developed in house

The engine electronic control unit (ECU) has been conceived after a 10-year development project carried out by R&D team; it is especially designed for HPE marine engines application. The ECU controls common rail system parts and included unique control stategies which can be personalized according customers’ request. It guarantees excellent performances with limited emissions.

High level performances

Set either for recreational use, where the engine reaches up to 184kW (250HP), or for any commercial purpose, where it can achieve up to 3000h/year, this unit guarantees excellent performances at each kind of operating condition.
