Perkins Engine highlights at Con Expo

Perkins debuts 0.5 to 18-liter hybrid engine technologies; update on My Engine app and genuine parts.

By working closely through the development stages with OEMs, Perkins provides solutions—including hybrid options—that can accelerate research and development and offer solutions designed to meet the demanding needs and challenges for almost any industry, saving the OEM valuable time and costs.

Perkins recently introduced hybrid technology concepts as part of its continued focus on power system innovation for OEMs. Utilizing the Perkins Syncro 2.8 liter engine, each of the four hybrid technologies offers a unique set of benefits at 75 kW / 100 hp—all of which eliminate the need for diesel exhaust fluid (DEF) systems. As part of the display, Perkins also debuted its brand-new second-generation hybrid-electric concept, which offers OEMs a zero-emissions, zero-noise, electric-only mode.

Perkins showed three hybrid technologies at Con Expo including its  hybrid-electric model. 

“Perkins is focused on delivering more choice and increasing value to our customers. The four hybrid concepts showcased at Con Expo are examples of future technologies that will take machine efficiency to the next level,” says Tom Nankervis, electrification marketing manager. “With our range of hybrid engines, customers can choose to downsize their engine and use the hybrid power for peak-load, or they can reduce output from the diesel engine, choosing to lower fuel consumption up to 20 percent.”

With more than10 years’ experience of developing electric-hybrid engine systems, Perkins continues innovating engine technologies. That’s because customers need an affordable and economically sustainable life-cycle solution that minimizes the perceived risks of transitioning to an electric machine. Whether it’s tailoring a system around an OEM’s needs or maintaining performance throughout the machine’s life, Perkins, and its global distribution network, are here to support them. 

Engine data at your fingertips
With more than 100.000 downloads, the Perkins My Engine App provides its users with proactive service reminders, quick access to engine parts and ordering, and most recently, free service manuals for all Perkins engines UNECE R96/Stage IIIA or below—helping keep overall downtime to a minimum. The free app is available in multiple languages including English, Spanish, French and German.

Genuine parts you can trust
By now, the benefits of genuine parts are almost universally known: they help to maximise the life of your engine, they can keep life cycle and overall engine costs low and will-fit parts can potentially damage other parts of the engine. Perkins genuine parts are crafted to spec directly from the engine with these ideas clearly in mind.

Tested and rigorously validated from the same engineers who built the engine, OEMs, machine owners and work-shops know when they buy Perkins genuine parts, it will fit the first time. And thanks to an included 12-month warranty on parts, they’re also getting peace of mind.
