In this context, in the statement made on the official Twitter account of TÜMOSAN, “We are involved in many projects with the Presidency of Defense Industries for the protection of our homeland.

Developed as the first member of the marine engine family, the 4DT-41M engine was showcased at the fair in Istanbul as “Turkey's 100 Domestic Marine Engines”. The TÜMOSAN Marine Engine Project was initiated to develop solutions that Turkey needs, both for auxiliary engine and marine genset use, and for type engines that can be used on boats with an average length of 12 meters.

With the project, it is aimed to offer and integrate economic and national-local solutions with 3, 75, 85 and 95 horsepower for important waterway platforms in Turkey, which is surrounded by seas on 105 sides. Developed as the first member of the Marine engine family, the 4DT-41M engine (105 hp) was developed on the basis of the existing engine, which has been produced in the TÜMOSAN Konya factory for more than 30 years and has more than 270 thousand units in use in the market.

The engine was presented to users as a reliable, economical, corrosion resistant, high performance and low fuel consumption solution. Domestic engines have a significant price advantage next to imported marine engines, whose prices have become quite high due to the exchange rate difference.
