Among the most trusted global power providers is Baudouin. With 100 years of continued activity, delivering a wide range of innovative power solutions. Founded in 1918 in Marseille, France, the Baudouin engine was born. Marine engines were Baudouin’s focus for many years, by the 1930s, Baudouin was ranked in the top 3 engine manufacturers in the world. Baudouin continued to keep its engines turning throughout the Second World War, and by the end of the decade, they had sold over 20000 units. At that time, their masterpiece was the DK engine. But as times changed, so did the company. By the 1970s, Baudouin had diversified into a variety of applications, both on land and, of course at sea. This included powering speedboats in the famed European Offshore Championships and introducing a new line of power generation engines. A first for the brand. After many years of international success and some unexpected challenges, in 2009, Baudouin was acquired by Weichai, one of the largest engine manufacturers in the world. It was the start of a wonderful new beginning for the company.
With a choice of outputs spanning 15 to 2500kva, they offer the heart and the robustness of a marine engine, even when used on land. With factories in France and China, Baudouin is proud to offer ISO 9001 and ISO/TS 14001 certifications. Meeting the highest demands for both quality and environmental management. Baudouin engines also comply with the latest IMO, EPA and EU emission standards, and are certified by all major IACS classification societies around the world. This means Baudouin has a power solution for everyone, wherever you are in the world.
