As a leader at GE Transportation, a distinguished division of Wabtec, a Fortune 500 company based in Pittsburgh, PA, with a global presence of 27,000 employees and an impressive annual revenue of 8.2 billion USD, I oversee a world-wide partner network of cutting-edge equipment, systems, digital solutions, and value-added services.

My leadership philosophy revolves around driving efficiency, reliability, and sustainability within the global maritime ecosystem. With a substantial global footprint, we’ve successfully deployed over 22,000 engines across various sectors, including marine, offshore, locomotive, and stationary power. This is particularly impactful for cruise and marine vessels striving to achieve compliance with IMO TIII and EPA T4 standards.

A significant achievement in our portfolio lies in the domain of marine diesel engines. Meticulously engineered to meet EPA Tier 4 emission standards, our engines leverage advanced exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) technology, eliminating the need for a urea-based selective catalytic reduction (SCR) after-treatment system. Wabtec marine engines equipped with EGR offer up to 40% space savings and 50% weight savings for medium and high-speed engines, ensuring enhanced efficiency without compromising performance.

Within our Freight Equipment business, the maritime division is a key segment, boasting more than 1,000 engines in service or commissioning. These engines primarily power customers in the work boat sectors, including dredging, river tugs, harbor tugs, ATBs, ferries, and medium-sized cruise ships. Cruise Ships we can do 6 engines 16V250MDC. 4.3MW each, 25.8 MW. 450 ft 15,000-20,000 dead weight tons.

Our commitment to cost-effectiveness is further highlighted by a comprehensive 2019 study conducted by Jensen Naval Architects & Marine Engineers. The study revealed that Wabtec marine engines featuring EGR technology can deliver up to 50% savings on installation costs compared to engines relying on SCR technology.
