Volvo Penta’s top-of-the-line engines are cleaner than ever, fulfilling the D16’s Stage V task. According to the Swedish company, they launched “the Stage V/Tier 4F certified D16 off-road engine, which boasts industry leading fuel efficiency, low to high-end torque and high-altitude performance.

Volvo Penta D16 is Stage V compliant

The D16 is based on proven technologies that have undergone millions of hours of testing and real-world use. Its versatile performance delivery, response and highly efficient combustion have been proven in real-world applications to help customers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 10%, when compared to the previous model. On top of its low fuel consumption, the D16’s reliable Exhaust Aftertreatment System (EATS) has been designed to use selective catalytic reduction technology only, removing the need for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The optimized EATS design ensures high uptime and low total cost of ownership.

Defeating noise

Built on the dependable in-line six cylinder design, the D16 has been developed to produce smooth operation with low noise levels. A durable, compact base engine that’s easy to install, the D16 is built to run. With easily accessible service points, the industrial engine is simple to maintain and now has an extended oil service interval from 500 to 1000 hours. The TWD1683VE diesel engine delivers 585 kW of power and 3650 Nm peak torque at 1900 RPM. As well as meeting the Stage V and Tier 4F emission regulations, the new engine also complies with MSHA, CANMET, Reg 120, Reg 96 and RoHS2 requirements”.

The first ‘electric’ delivery in France

The Volvo Group, on the other hand, remains committed to the electric revolution. As demonstrated by the truck and excavator in use in France. By the end of last year were delivered the first Volvo Construction Equipment machine and the first all-electric Volvo FE truck in France. According to Volvo Group “the recipient of the new products – an electric Volvo FE truck, with electrically powered crane, and a Volvo ECR25 Electric compact excavator – was leading French contractor and long-term Volvo customer Eiffage. The machines support Eiffage’s low carbon strategy and are to work on the ambitious Grand Paris Express transport project in the French capital. This is a rapid transit initiative being built in the French capital that will add 200 kilometres (120 mi) of new track and 68 new stations, ultimately serving two million passengers a day. The handover of Volvo Trucks and Volvo Construction Equipment’s first all-electric products was marked with a small ceremony in Paris. It was attended by Benoit de Ruffray, Eiffage Group CEO, and representative of Volvo Truck and Volvo CE’s France-based teams.
