Evinrude Donates Engines to University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee Graduate School

June 2016 Industry, News

Evinrude has donated outboard engines to the University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee’s School of Freshwater Sciences. The engines will be used aboard two research vessels and were donated as part of Evinrude’s support for local education and the preservation of the marine environment.

“We are very grateful to the team at Evinrude for their support of our research programs,” said J. Val Klump, the associate dean of research and senior director of the School of Freshwater Sciences. “Our faculty and students conduct vital research on topics such as water quality, pollution identification and prevention, and improved fish breeding for urban aquaculture. These projects impact the environment, the economy and the quality of life for millions of people locally and globally, now and for future generations. Our research would not be possible without the support of like-minded and forward-thinking sponsors like Evinrude. This is why their engines, which are the cleanest combustion engines on the market, are a perfect complement to our work.” 

“So much of our innovation is focused on the efficiency of our Evinrude E-TEC engines and the impact of internal combustion on the environment,” said Christopher Berg, global director of marketing and strategic planning for Evinrude. “We are dedicated to providing the most fuel-efficient and highest-performing outboard engines, and are proud to say that our Evinrude E-TEC G2 engines have the lowest emissions of any combustion outboard on the market. We are proud to be associated with the current and future education and research programs conducted by University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee given our shared goals.” 

The School of Freshwater Sciences is the only graduate school in North America that focuses on freshwater issues and is the largest water-focused research institution on the Great Lakes
