Perkins at Conexpo. Hybrids on display
Perkins at Conexpo. After the preview at the Bauma in Munich and the catwalk at the Agritechnica, the 2.8-litre hybrid formulation has landed overseas. Find here the word of Jaz Gill, Perkins vice president of global sales, marketing, service and parts: «Perkins offers an industry-leading choice of world-class engines and options, so no matter the industry—from rental fleets that house hundreds of types of equipment to multi-machine construction worksites—our original equipment manufacturer customers can be confident that we have the right engine for even the most unique applications. Our reputation as a power-solutions expert means OEMs feel confident working side-by-side with our team of engineers and developers to create an optimal solution for their machine.»
Each of the four hybrid technologies offers a unique set of benefits at 75 kW / 100 hp—all of which allow the deletion of the diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) system. As part of the display, Perkins debuts its brand-new second-generation hybrid-electric concept, which offers OEMs a zero-emissions, zero-noise, electric-only mode.
Says Tom Nankervis, electrification marketing manager: «Perkins is focused on delivering more choice and increasing value to our customers. The four hybrid concepts we’re showcasing are examples of future technologies that will take machine efficiency to the next level. With our range of hybrid engines, customers can choose to downsize their engine and use the hybrid power for peak-load, or they can reduce output from the diesel engine, choosing to lower fuel consumption up to 20 percent.»
On display at Conexpo Perkins booth also 403J-11T, 904J-E36TA (the Syncro family), 1204J-E44TTA, 1706J-E93TA and 2806J-E18TTA.
