FPT Industrial engine Cursor 9 200 hp
Location Venice, Italy
Application Marine, urban transport

We started installing our marine engines on the world-famous “vaporetti di Venezia” in the mid-60s. Million of passengers have been carried around since. When you visit the most romantic city in the world, just remember you are FPT-powered. Our partnership with ACTV (Azienda del Consorzio Trasporti Veneziano) has been regularly renewed in the course of the years – and today about 80% of the ACTV fleet (comprising over 160 boats) is equipped with FPT Industrial engines. Recently overhauled waterbuses are fitted with Cursor 9 power units specifically calibrated to supply 200 hp at 2000 rpm, compliant with the Rina standard, with the 2004/26 EC Directive on inland water navigation and with the strictest international regulations on polluting emissions. These engines have been selected for their low emissions, for their high performance and for the extraordinary record of service of their predecessors – and are serviced by the FPT Industrial BIMOTOR Dealership, which also provides ACTV with full support and spare parts supply.
