Perkins launches new range of diesel engine

Perkins_diesel_enginesPerkins is launching the 1600 Series Electropak diesel engine at MEE 2012.Perkins is launching the 1600 Series Electropak diesel engine for the electric power market at Middle East Electricity 2012.

Designed to meet key market nodes, the new line up fills the gap between the company’s current 1300 and 2000 Series ranges.

Six cylinder 9.3 litre engine

The 1600 Series Electropak family comprises a range of full authority electronic control, turbocharged, air-to-air charge-cooled engines that have been developed to provide prime and standby power.

The six cylinder, 9.3 litre range offers outputs up to 300kVA (240 kWe) prime power and 330 kVA (264 kWe) standby power at 1500 rpm – both key nodes – though the intention is to release a 350kVA (280kWe) standby version later in the year.

Key benefits

For OEMs and genset packagers the key benefits include the combination of higher power density and load acceptance, which effectively means that the 1600 Series can achieve outputs normally associated with much bigger displacement engines, while offering a space saving opportunity during installation.

The tropical radiator, which is fitted as standard, ensures that there is high ambient clearance at even the highest temperatures, making it suitable for applications such as supersound canopies.

Maximum output

With little or no derate the unit can produce its maximum output virtually anywhere in the world. Its global acceptability has also been enhanced through the simultaneous launch of versions for both non-regulated and EU IIIa territories. This versatility has been further increased with the inclusion of switchable models which both reduces parts inventory and supports the needs of the rental market.

Durable and economic

Built for durable and economic use, its operating and maintenance costs are reduced thanks to its frugal consumption of fuel – around 200g/kWhr – while whole life costs are enhanced by the 500 hours service intervals and Perkins standard warranty.
