Running a prime power genset operation places high demands on your engine’s reliability. When downtime isn’t an option, your operation needs to be able to rely on its core power source. Volvo Penta offers robust engines you can trust to keep running, under demanding conditions, with unmatched load acceptance that fulfills the highest requirement standards, low fuel consumption and simple installations and service as their hallmarks.
One of the most important factors when running prime power applications, is fuel economy. Volvo Penta prime power engines provide a highly efficient combustion strategy with common rail fuel injection that translates into minimized consumption. To this – for all Tier IV final and Stage V engines – we add an efficient aftertreatment system that further decreases the need for fuel. All in all, the engines offer demanding customers a world-class solution to fuel consumption challenges.
The low fuel consumption plays a big part in the overall low total cost of ownership, but factors such as extended service intervals, oil change intervals of 1,000 hours, low heat rejection, the excellent serviceability and the commonality of spare parts contribute to keeping redundant costs down. By being able to run the engines longer between intervals you minimize downtime and keep your operation at peak capacity.
When your engine makes up some 70% of your genset application, the power density of your chosen engine can be the difference between an efficient operation and a substandard one. Volvo Penta’s engines equal high-power density in a compact low complexity set-up characterized by low weight. This equals benefits such as reduced storage space, easier transports and simplified serviceability.
Volvo Penta offers prime power engines that comply with everything from Stage II to Stage V. No matter the emission stage, they are all characterized by their engine commonality, all built on the same engine platform, with the same engine footprint. This means that, apart from simple spare part commonality, you also benefit from global installation commonality. As the engine is delivered in one piece, the transport is vastly facilitated, and no multiple installation steps are necessary.
Volvo Penta offers customer the support of more than 900 dealers in more than 130 markets as well as close cooperation with other Volvo Group companies. This translates into a truly global dealer network, characterized by local expertise. Paired with the world-class parts distribution network and the Volvo Penta Action Service 24/7 support in 28 different languages, this means that we always stand prepared to assist you, whatever your needs.
In 2019, the Volvo Penta D16 engine powered gensets that lit the stages at the Sweden Rock Festival. Nine gensets have a maximum output that can power over 420 houses! And with 35,000 rock fans in attendance, there is no room for blackouts.All Mighty Jobs episodes on Youtube
Jimmy Olausson, generator electrician at Swedish music festival Sweden Rock, talks about the peace of mind derived from powering the operation with Volvo Penta D16 engines.
Thompson Recycle in Michigan, USA, have chosen Volvo Penta D16 to run their operation. Joshua Ott, operations manager shows how this has helped Thompson with significant fuel reductions.
