Simple Tier 4 Final Solution

Volvo Penta’s Stage IV/Tier 4 Final engines use SCR to meet the increased legislative demands of industrial engines. Not only are the emission regulations met, but this technology pairs with a light EGR system to offer a wide range of benefits. Apart from lowered nitrogen oxide (NOx) emissions, this solution means less maintenance and upkeep for customers, as well as better productivity and uptime and lower costs. Diesel fuel efficiency is also improved.
