Penta, a member of the Volvo group and a global leader in the off-road and
powergen engine business, has announced the launch of two new CPCB Stage II
power generation engines. The engines will be launched in the presence of the
Volvo Penta President and CEO Björn Ingemanson who will be visiting India soon.
to a company statement, Ingemanson is making his first visit to India to meet
with journalists and other key stakeholders, as well as to oversee the release
of two new 16-litre Volvo Penta genset units that round out the company’s range
of CPCB Stage II (similar to EU Stage IIIA) emissions-compliant engines.
the new TWD1652GE and TWD1653GE engines, Volvo Penta now offers a CPCB Stage
II-ompliant range from 250 kVA (the 7-litre TAD754GE) to 600 kVA (TWD1652GE)
and 650 KVA (TWD1653GE) on prime power. Durable and robust for optimum uptime,
these new engines are also notable for their low fuel consumption and low total
cost of ownership. The TWD1652GE and TWD1653GE have a high power density, which
enables them to compete with much larger engines from other manufacturers. And
a smaller engine design often means easier installation for OEMs. The Volvo
Penta CPCB Stage II engines have the same installation footprint as the current
engine for minimal customer impact.
coincide with the launch of the new engines, Volvo Penta President Björn
Ingemanson will also meet with key OEMs and joint venture partners. Ingemanson
will also be accompanied by Giorgio Paris, president of the company’s Emerging
Markets and Asia Pacific Region, and Lars Ljungqvist, senior vice president of
planning, product development and purchasing.
the near future, India will be one of our largest and most important industrial
engine markets,” Ingemanson said. “By expanding our range of products suited to
the Indian market, we are demonstrating our long-term commitment to this market
and to our OEM partners. This trip allows us to meet with the local organisation
to learn more about this important market, as well as to continue discussions
about production and further expansion with our joint venture partners.”
