LPG for marine engines

Staff Reporter

KOCHI: The locally developed marine LPG kit from Surya's Marine LPG Kit Co., Aluva, spells good news for fishermen. The new application of LPG for use in fishing vessels using outboard engines is being gradually launched across the State although it has been in use for about a year in select pockets such as Andhakaranazhi, near Cherthala, on an experimental basis.

In the district of Ernakulam, the LPG kit was launched early this week at Vypeen. Mahima Agencies, distributors, says that the new application of LPG would help the fishermen make considerable savings.

The Kerala State Cooperative Federation For Fisheries Development (Matsyafed) is likely to look into the efficiency of the LPG kit and to make an evaluation of its own, it is learnt.

In the meanwhile, Surya's marine LPG kit, promises to help make savings in fuel and maintenance cost of the engines when compared to the conventional outboard engines run on petrol or kerosene.
