The additional 20 units ordered by Pakistan are C20EMP, not ES43ACi

The Egyptian order, South Africa (223 kits), the ES43BBi in Brazil, all use non Tier 4 complaint GEVO engines. Apparently the compliant engine has a heavier strengthened block, and heavier crankshaft?

With earlier export locos it is common to refer to U20C as phase 1 and phase 2

With GEVO engines will we have to use "phase" to ID blocks, or does GE have a system covering engines?

With GE requiring lightweight engines for the export market, it looks like the earlier (phase 1?) engine has an assured future. Including Brazil, GE have orders for around 350 of the earlier engine in the pipeline. This engine is also license built at CRRC Qishuyan in China
