Stage IV/Tier 4 Final Technology
Our technology choice for industrial engines to meet the legislative demands covered in Stage IV/EPA Tier 4 Final is SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction). Together with a light EGR (Exhaust Gas Recirculation) system, the engines stand ready to meet these emission standards with a well-proven technology. The Volvo Penta SCR solution means less maintenance and upkeep for customers, as well as better productivity and uptime and lower maintenance costs.
The Benefits of the Volvo Penta Solution
Opting for a SCR soluton to meet the Stage IV/Tier 4 Final emission legislation, comes with a number of benefits and advantages.
An engine with the Volvo SCR system has the same – or lower – cooling demand than one without SCR. Lower cooling demands translates to lower noise levels and minimized costs for the radiator package. This enables manufacturers to house the cooling system in installations where space is limited.
Maximized power output
The Volvo Advanced Combustion Technology and the SCR system turn more fuel energy into mechanical power – which leads to less heat rejection – meaning that the power output can be maximized for any given engine displacement. The result is smaller engine sizes, reduced costs, and simplified installations.
Reduced overall costs
For the end users, the principal benefits of the SCR engines start with unsurpassed fuel efficiency that cuts operating costs. With the SCR system, where the catalytic converter is designed to last the life of the engine, costs for maintenance and downtime are also reduced.
