Perkins beefs up its 4000 series line

Power outages can happen anytime.

Violent rainstorms and flash flooding almost always result in blackouts, especially in countries where the national power-grid is fragile.

Thus efficient electrical generators are a must for entities to counter the repercussions brought about by power disruptions. Providing the highest quality power solutions for Generators has been the role of Perkins, the world’s leading supplier of off-highway diesel engines and gas engines in the 4-2500 kW market. Through many years of providing various industries with their engine needs, Perkins has grown to become synonymous with fuel efficiency and high power output.

In China, Perkins can be found in the Huaneng Yiming Power Plant in Inner Mongolia (4012 46TAG3A), the Cascade Hydropower Station in Dadu River Basin (4008TAG2A), Xi Gu Heat and Power Plant (4006 23TAG3A) and the Thousand Island Lake Resort in Hangzhou (4012-46TAG3A).

Perkins has also made a resounding entry in the diesel generator business in India with a contract to supply over 175 4000 series engines to their largestIndian OEM – Sterling generators Pvt. Ltd. Among its several prestigious projects is the Delhi AirportMetro Rail Express, where it will provide emergency power to the five rail stations that connect the city centre of New Delhi to the Airport. The project includes SITC of 11 DG sets ranging from 750 to 1250 KVA.

Another project is the first phase of the TRIL Infopark, where Perkins will provide 1 MW of emergency power with 13 1.6 MW= Sterling DG sets along with Perkins 4016 TAG2A engines. The TRIL Infopark is an IT city that costs approximately US$770 million. It is a joint venture between the TATA Realty group and Tamil Nadu Industrial Development Corporation.

And then there is the 25MW power requirements of Amanora City, where Perkins will supply ten 1010KVA, two 1500KVA and one 1700KVA DG set. Amanora City is a unique township project in Pune by the City Realty Group that has ultra modern facilities such as fully furnished apartments, schools, hospitals, offices, markets, entertainment parks, shopping malls, etc.

“We are delighted with our significant entry into the key Indian EP sector and plan to build on this success into 2011 and beyond,” says Jaz Gill, General Manager for Perkins in Asia Pacific.

The company also has an extensive global distributor network to provide product support solutions when and wherever needed around the world.

To beef up its offerings, Perkins has boosted its 4000 Series Electric Power line-up with the introduction of a powerful new 16 cylinder power unit.

The 4016-61TRG diesel engine offers outstanding power density and compactness and has been developed to provide cost-effective prime and standby power. The new engine series extends the power range upwards by ten percent compared to the 4016TAG2A, providing customers with greater engine choice, and is available as an ElectropaK or Elecrounit specification.

It has exceptional power to weight ratio and good load acceptance for both prime and standby power, aligned to overall cost of ownership, and reliability characteristics make this engine the power generation industry’s first choice of power.

Making use of direct injection combustion technology, the compact family of three 61 litre air to water charge-cooled engines provide optimum power density for ease of installation, offering tangible benefits to both genset packagers and end users. The 4016-61TRG range will be available at both 50 and 60Hz with standby powers from 2000-2500KVA at 1500rpm and 1650-2000KWe at 1800rpm.

Furthermore, the engine’s class leading ambient and altitude clearance prevents de-ration at 50 deg C ambient territories. Its compactness allows for installation into a 40 feet container saving space and dramatically reducing installation and freight costs.

“Our customers will undoubtedly benefit from the performance, power and excellent fuel consumption delivered by this new engine range. The introduction of the 4016-61TRG further strengthens Perkins’ presence as a full range supplier to the Electric Power market and represents a cost effective solution to market requirements,” says Carl Emery, Perkins’ electric power marketing manager.
