Volvo Penta launch new D16 off-road engine
New Stage V/Tier 4F engine reduces fuel consumption and delivers low to high-end torque
VOLVO Penta are launching their most powerful and versatile engine to date, the new 16-litre, Stage V/Tier 4F-certified D16 off-road engine, which is said to deliver industry-leading fuel efficiency and low- to high-end torque.
Based on proven technologies that have undergone millions of hours of testing, Volvo Penta say the D16’s versatile performance delivery, response and highly efficient combustion have been proven, in real-world applications, to help customers reduce their fuel consumption by up to 10%, when compared with the previous model.
As well as its low fuel consumption, the D16’s exhaust aftertreatment system (EATS) has been designed to use selective catalytic reduction technology only, removing the need for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and a diesel particulate filter (DPF). The optimized EATS design ensures high uptime and low total cost of ownership.
With its dual-stage turbo system, the D16 delivers high performance across the operational range, providing high torque at both low and high engine speeds. This allows the engine to meet the requirements of multiple applications, without operators having to compromise between performance and torque.
The dual-turbo system is based on proven technology that has been used in Volvo Penta’s power-generation engines for more than a decade, and the D16is the first of the company’s industrial engines to be equipped with this technology.
Built on the dependable in-line six-cylinder design, the D16 delivers 585kW (796hp) of power and 3,650Nm peak torque at 1,900 rev/min, and has been developed to produce smooth operation with low noise levels. With easily accessible service points, the durable and compact engine is simple to maintain and now has an extended oil service interval, from 500 to 1,000 hours.
