By adding the D8 and D13 engines into the mix, Volvo Penta has built a range that features a variety of solutions for customers. The D8 is a completely new addition to the manufacturer’s genset family; the design is based on proven and mature technology concepts already existing today across the Volvo Group.
“This is a key milestone for Volvo Penta, as we now offer an extensive Stage V-compliant engine range for both the off-road and power generation markets,” says Giorgio Paris, head of Industrial at Volvo Penta. “Not only is this beneficial to our customers, but it is also helping us to build a better, greener society.”
As with the other Stage V engines, the D8 and D13 additions have been developed with ease of installation, operation and maintenance in mind. Lower maintenance requirements and significantly lower fuel consumption (compared to Stage IIIA) combine to deliver improved total cost of ownership. Volvo Penta has also improved the user environment by lowering the noise output.
Volvo Penta’s Stage V-compliant D8 genset engine is a premium dual-speed engine, switchable between 1,500 rpm and 1,800 rpm and delivering up to 218kWm at prime power. It is available in three power nodes: 150, 200 and 250kVA at 1,500 rpm at prime power.
Similar to the D8, the D13 engine is also a dual-speed engine. Switchable between 1,500 rpm (50 Hz) and 1,800 rpm (60 Hz), it delivers up to 345 kWm at prime power and is also available in three power nodes: 300, 350 and 400 kVA at 1,500 rpm (50 Hz) at prime power.
