Stage V: helping farmers be greener at EIMA06/11/2018
This year’s EIMA agricultural exhibition in Italy sees Volvo Penta taking its latest Stage V-compliant engines and electric driveline technology to market.
As an industry that is more aligned with the environment than any other, agriculture is set to embrace the new EU Stage V emissions legislation due to be implemented in 2019, as part of its growing awareness of the need for sustainable solutions. Volvo Penta is on hand to make that process easy, and will present a range of Stage V-compliant products and solutions that meet the needs of farmers and agricultural companies at this year’s EIMA exhibition in Bologna in November. The company will display two models – a five-liter engine and 13-liter engine, along with an Exhaust Aftertreatment System (EATS) – as well as an electric driveline.
“Stage V not only represents the future of environmental care but also the possibility for OEMs in Europe to boost production and to win business, offering a product in line with the European emissions legislation,” says Renato Deda, sales manager for industrial engines in Italy and Spain.
“We invest in innovation and are able to leverage additional research and development from the Volvo Group, which gives us high competence in engineering. Our expertise enables our customers to take advantage of the opportunities we can provide.
“Volvo Penta is a growing player in the agricultural sector, thanks to our quality products, our international brand status – which is complemented by our regional market understanding. This is supported by our flexibility of options, global service network, and above all, our absolute focus on customers’ needs.”
Stage V: Low emissions convenience
Volvo Penta’s Stage V technology meets tougher emissions standards and takes a step towards a more sustainable future. The combination of robust engines that perform well in even the toughest off-road applications, along with the perfectly matched EATS, deliver a power source that optimizes uptime, performance and fuel efficiency. Convenience is, of course, important, and so Volvo Penta’s Stage V engines are easy to install, operate and maintain. The company’s Stage V range offers power from 105 to 565 kW (143-770 hp).
Electromobility: Bright sparks of the future
Volvo Penta recently announced its pledge to offer electric drivelines across its range, by 2021. Advances in electric-drive technology and improved battery capacity are underpinning developments. The company will use EIMA to discuss these developments with customers and visitors to the show.
“The needs of environmental sustainability and customers’ business requirements are getting ever closer, as electrified options become increasingly feasible,” says Peter Granqvist, chief technology officer at Volvo Penta. “There is now a clear trend from all customer groups: the need for cleaner, quieter and more fuel-efficient drivelines.”
In leveraging the Volvo Group’s proven platforms, harnessing the latest technology for energy storage in batteries, and in collaborating directly with customers, Volvo Penta will create win-win electromobility solutions that allow customers to move their businesses forward.
Volvo Penta will be exhibiting in Hall 15 Stand C18 at EIMA in Bologna, Italy, from November 7-11.
