Designed at its R&D hub at Mahindra Research Valley in Chennai and manufactured in Pune, India, this new range of 9.3-litre engine is the latest addition to Mahindra Powerol’s mPOWER series and comes equipped with the technologically advanced CRD engines.

The CRD engines are powered by superior and advanced common rail diesel engine (CRDe) technology. CRDe technology is future ready and best known for heavy-duty performance and fuel efficiency. It significantly reduces pollution by going beyond the standard emission norms. The same advanced technology is now being used for the newly launched 250kVA and 320kVA gensets.

The high block loading capacity of the Mahindra Powerol gensets enhances the DG performance against a high instantaneous load, which is useful for heavy duty applications.

The new range is equipped with Mahindra’s unique DiGi-SENSE technology, which makes it a ‘Smart DG’. The performance of Smart DG sets can be monitored real-time remotely from anywhere, thereby improving the uptime of the gensets.

Mahindra Powerol has also introduced a unique colour – Coral Orange for the entire range of aesthetically improved diesel gensets.

The company also revealed that it is in talks with a number of global and domestic players for a technology tie-up to launch high power diesel generator sets in 500kVA and above category in the next two years.

The company is also looking to increase exports revenue of its generator business to 25 per cent in the next financial year from the existing around 16 per cent, according to Economic Times.

“We plan to roll out diesel generators in a higher category of 500 kVA and above in the next two years. The industry is moving towards that segment. We are now working on that,” Mahindra & Mahindra vice-president (Retail and International Business-Powerol) Sanjay Jain told Indian news agency PTI.

The company is currently in discussions with a number of firms rolling out the high powered generator sets, he added.

“We are working on it. We are talking to many companies, both domestic and foreign for a tie-up It may be for the technology. But nothing has been finalised yet,” Jain said.

He did not share any other detail regarding development of the product such as investment for research.
