In 2014 Volvo Penta will release its full line of Tier 4 Final-compliant industrial engines. But what exactly is Tier 4 Final, and what does it mean for customers?
World-leading OEMs have signed supply agreements for Volvo Penta Tier 4/Final off-road diesel engines, with deliveries starting next year. With the strength of the Volvo Group's overall service and product offering, Volvo Penta conquers more and more global customers in the off-road segment.
The majority of engine manufacturers only introduce stage IV on latest engine platforms making it problematic having to mix different litre displacements, base engines and configurations. Volvo Penta offers complete commonality across the range. All models are developed around the same base engine design and available in stage II to stage IV emission levels. This puts the Volvo Penta offer in a unique position.
A heavy-duty cooling package and a heavy-duty cabling harness concept are two novelties from Volvo Penta that will substantially improve the performance of Volvo Penta engines working in extremely harsh and dusty working environments. The cabling harness is already standard on all Volvo Penta industrial engines, while the cooling package will be launched by Volvo Penta as optional equipment in 2013.
