Perkins' 9.3 litre 1706 reaches now 340kW
By optimising fuel systems and exhaust after-treatment packages, Perkins
has increased the power density of its large engines as the firm heads closer to EU stage V emissions compliance.
A key example is the firm’s 1706J-E93TA. Previously, this 9.3 litre six-cylinder was offering a power output of 300kW. As it moves towards EU stage V certification, the power output has increased to 340kW.
“The Perkins EU stage V engine range has more models from one manufacturer than any other, so the 9.3 litre is just the beginning,” says Oliver Lythgoe, Perkins product concept marketing manager. “The high-power output of up to 340kW makes the 9.3 litre engine ideal for OEMs wanting to downsize from larger 10-13 litre engines.”
Perkins has made significant investment in its EU Stage V programme with the introduction of six new engine models to extend its power range with the 1700, 2200, 2400, 2600 and 2800 Series and the Syncro 2.8L and 3.6L. The British engine maker will have 14 different engine sizes from 0.5-18 litres and will provide tailored solutions for customers with power ratings from 6–470kW.
“Even after the emissions introduction, we will continue to release new models and add new features to our range,” said Lythgoe. “This gives our OEM customers a wide choice of power solutions that are adapted to their machines and their business models.”
