Volvo Penta attracted scores of customers — and competitors — to its Bauma 2013 stand — the lure of seeing its complete range of new Stage 4/Tier 4 Final industrial engines proved to be irresistible.
2013 was a record year for the Bauma Munich trade fair. According to the organizers the Bauma 2013 attracted an impressive 530,000 visitors from over 200 countries to the Messe München exhibition center between April 15 and 21. Not only did this edition of Bauma break all previous records for exhibitor numbers, 3,420 exhibitors from 57 countries, and exhibition space, it also attracted the highest number of visitors ever.
After seven days of hectic work the Volvo Penta stand had enjoyed considerable popularity, with a large number of existing and potential customers stopping by to check out the company’s complete range of 5- to 16-liter Stage 4/Tier 4 Final off-road engines. Around 15 OEMs displayed industrial equipment powered with Volvo Penta engines.
At the exhibition Volvo Penta unveil a complete engine program for industrial engines complying with all existing non-road emission stages. This means that 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.
At the exhibition Sandvik introduced a new generation UH450E track-mounted tertiary crusher. The choice of engine power fell on a Volvo Penta TAD1651GE. Sullair announced an agreement with Sullair to supply Tier 4 interim diesel engines to power their line of portable air compressors. The compressors are produced in Sullair’s factory in Michigan City, Indiana, USA and are already in use by customers across North America.
