CXO300 receives BSO-II certification to operate on Lake Constance

Cox Powertrain’s CXO300 diesel outboard engine has received the Lake Constance (Bodensee) emission approval (BSO-II) which grants permission to operate on Lake Constance, a highly regulated lake primarily belonging to silent boating and water sport activities.

The lake, which covers a distance of 63km, is regulated by the Lake Constance Shipping Regulations who work towards safeguarding its natural environment, granting special rights to passenger ships and fishing boats to operate on its waters.

“Lake Constance has, for many years, been known for its tough emission standard reaching beyond the general levels applicable for the European Union. Therefore we are extra proud that the CXO300 diesel outboard has been approved for use on the lake,” says Peter Nauwerck, managing director at Diesel Power AB. “We achieved this by close co-operation between our local partners Valentina Bootservice and BootCenter Konstanz, Diesel Power AB as distributor for Sweden and Germany and Cox Powertrain in the UK.”

The CXO300 receiving the BSO-II certification is, the company says, a testament to the innovative engineering and design that went into developing this outboard and demonstrates the dedication to ensuring that the CXO300 is a clean-burning engine. With emissions regulations constantly evolving, Cox had to design, not only an innovative engine but an environmentally friendly and sustainable one too.

The CXO300 produces 20-35% less CO2 emissions than comparable gasoline outboards and, Cox says, paves the way for innovation in powerful diesel outboards.

Hugh Hudleston, head of sales at Cox Powertrain comments: “At Cox Powertrain we have a strong business message to lower emissions that are harmful to our natural environment. Lake Constance certifying the CXO300 as safe to operate on their picturesque lake is a great accomplishment for Cox and continues the driving force in the development of propulsion systems to produce lower CO2 emissions.”
