With our slogan "Environmental cleanness is the best priority," we have focused on developing environment-friendly main engines. Our new model LA-type main engine adopts the hydraulic moving valve system for exhaust and intake valves, which can decrease engine noise and vibration and scattering of lubrication oil, and improve the environment of the engine room. In 2014 , the LA30 type was newly added to our products lineup. Furthermore, we HANSHIN have delivered the world's first electoric controlled four-stroke low speed engine, LH46LE type. In the near future, we will develop new models of four-stroke engines and improve the lineup of two-stroke electric controlled engines.
