Volvo Penta D8 Stage II and IIIA/Tier 3 engine is the key product on display the company’s booth in Dubai. The participation in Middle East Energy 2020, in fact, allows the Swedish manufacturer to introduce Stage II and IIIA/Tier 3 versions of a power generation engine, the D8, that we saw a few months ago at DPE in Rimini in its Stage V version.
The 8-litre power generation engine offers indeed industry-leading power density and a compact size, combined with low fuel consumption and noise levels.
100% proven, reliable components
The D8 base engine has been used globally for a wide variety of applications across the Volvo Group. Now, Volvo Penta engineers have perfected the design and optimized the D8 for the power generation segment.
«The proven D8 design is based on mature technology concepts that have undergone hundreds of thousands of testing hours and real-world use», says Kristian Vekas, product manager for generator engines at Volvo Penta. «With the D8, our customers will benefit from 100% proven, reliable components. We have ensured our solution will function with the required performance and reliability levels in all the applications, climates and environments our customers operate in».
