Volvo Penta president Björn Ingemanson is making his first visit to India for the release of two new 16-liter Volvo Penta genset units that round out the company’s range of CPCB Stage II (similar to EU Stage IIIA) emissions-compliant engines.

With the new TWD1652GE and TWD1653GE engines, Volvo Penta now offers a CPCB Stage II-compliant range from 250 kVA (the 7-liter TAD754GE) to 600 kVA (TWD1652GE) and 650 KVA (TWD1653GE) on prime power.

These new engines are also notable for their low fuel consumption and low total cost of ownership and they have a high power density; and a smaller engine design often means easier installation for OEMs, says the company.

The Volvo Penta CPCB Stage II engines have the same installation footprint as the current engine for minimal customer impact.

Ingemanson is accompanied by Giorgio Paris, president of the company’s Emerging Markets and Asia Pacific Region, and Lars Ljungqvist, senior vice president of planning, product development and purchasing.

“In the near future, India will be one of our largest and most important industrial engine markets,” Ingemanson said.
