HC Deb 07 March 1978 vol 945 c606W
Mr. Skeet

asked the Secretary of State for Industry how many and which companies in the United Kingdom currently manufacture medium-speed diesel engines in the private sector; and what is their contribution to exports for the last year for which figures are available.

Mr. Cryer

The manufacturers of medium speed diesel engines of 5,000 KW and over in the private sector are: Mirrlees Blackstone (Stockport) Ltd.; Ruston Diesels Ltd.; APE Crossley Ltd.

Separate export figures for large medium speed diesel engines are not available. In 1977 direct exports of all compression ignition engines for marine propulsion and other uses of a power more than 5,000 KW were valued at nearly £10 million.
