Diesel vs. Steam
Over the last decade, a major question in the Great Lakes shipping
industry has been whether to re-power with diesel engines or to save the existing
“old reliable” steam engine by increasing its efficiency.
Up front, diesel appears to be more efficient, but it’s more
expensive to maintain. Diesel stack emissions are also more difficult to reduce than those
of steam power. A new, more economical answer has been found in modern innovative engine
room management of existing steam plants.

fleets on the Great Lakes refer to G.R. Bowler, Inc. for automated
marine control systems.
