Five Reasons to Select Volvo Penta as Your Power Generation Engine Partner

When it comes to power generation, reliability is an absolute requirement. Downtime is unacceptable. For mission-critical applications, you need a worry-free generator and engine package that can be depended on for years of rugged and reliable performance while also controlling costs and limiting harmful emissions into the air.

Challenge Everything with Volvo Penta Tier 4 Final engines for Power Generation

For prime power applications, whether for oil and gas fields, construction sites or other remote industrial operations in places where the electric grid is unavailable or unreliable, you’re looking for a dependable source of uninterrupted power to sustain your operations under all conditions.

And for standby power, you need the peace of mind that comes with the certainty that your backup generators will spin up quickly and provide instant full output to support the load whenever the grid goes down.

That’s why so many top power generation system suppliers around the world depend on Volvo Penta as their trusted business partner.

As an independent manufacturer of engines, Volvo Penta does not build or sell generators. Rather, we are a world-class provider of industrial-grade engines for companies that build and supply power generation systems. Our full concentration is focused on delivering powerful, fuel efficient, low emissions, minimal maintenance, and low-noise power generation engines that you can count on – day in and day out.

Consider these five reasons Volvo Penta should be your power generation engine partner.

Proven EPA Tier 4 Final Engine Platform. With over 100 years of experience, we have a tradition of engineering excellence that’s reflected in the longevity and durability of our industrial engines in the most demanding environments. And we were one of the first to be Tier 4 Final compliant.

Lowest Total Costs of Ownership. Our engine technology is designed to deliver industry-leading fuel economy with minimal maintenance. Our fuel efficiency is up to 5% lower than other powergen engines. This translates into more uptime and lower total cost of ownership. You’ll see the difference on the bottom line.

Reliable Products. You can count on Volvo Penta for thoroughly engineered high-performance solutions that meet your power needs. An important attribute of our engines is their unmatched load acceptance, giving you instant access to the full power output the second you start up the machine.

Easy to Install, Easy to Maintain. Volvo Penta’s engines are designed to fit easily into virtually any space requirement for mobile gensets or permanent standby installations. Our application engineers are standing by to assist as needed in designing the system that meets your space and load requirements. And our factory-trained dealers have the technical competence, skills, spare parts and diagnostic tools to maximize your productivity and minimize disruptions. Service points on the engine were designed for convenience. They allow greater accessibility, saving you time and effort on your preventative maintenance.

High Power, Low Emissions. At Volvo Penta, we’re serious about sustainability and protecting the environment. Our Tier4 Final solution uses a combination of SCR with light EGR aftertreatment. There is no Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF). This means no periodic shutdowns for regeneration as in other manufacturers’ engines.
