BENEFITS OF VOLVO PENTA POWER GENSET ENGINES
Are you looking for a leading industrial genset engine supplier? Volvo Penta will walk with you through every step to provide industrial power products that are reliable, economical and highly efficient.
CHOOSING THE RIGHT INDUSTRIAL POWER GENERATOR
When looking to buy an industrial power generator, it is important to select one that matches your power requirements and gives you long-term value for your investment. We have a wide range of engine package options to choose from to meet your needs for reliability, quality and economy.
GET THE RIGHT POWER GENERATOR SIZE
We recommend large industrial generators that make sure you have power during an emergency or peak in power usage. A rule of thumb is to calculate your total power requirements and pick a generator which produces 20% more than that. Our generators range from 50 Hz/1500 rpm of our in‐line 4‐cylinder 4.8‐liter engines, all the way up to 60 Hz/1800 rpm of the in‐line 6‐cylinder 16.1‐liter diesel genset engines.
HOW DOES AN INDUSTRIAL GENERATOR WORK?
Since generators tend to be used in places as the only power source or the last resort, it is vital that its components are efficient, reliable and high performing. The critical parts of industrial generators are the engine, alternator, fuel system, voltage regulator, cooling and exhaust, lubrication and the battery. We are market-leaders when it comes to delivering the most industrial power per liter displacement, with some of our 16-liter engines reaching 94% efficiency.
WHY PICK AN INDUSTRIAL DIESEL GENERATOR?
Industrial diesel generators burn at a lower temperature with higher energy density compared to gasoline. This lowers the wear on the engine and gives diesel generators more efficiency and longer service life – perfect for extreme conditions and minimal maintenance. An industrial diesel engine working at 1800 rpm can run from 12,000 to 30,000 hours between major maintenance services, compared to a gasoline powered engine which may require servicing after 6,000 to 10,000 hours of operation.
