Perkins has launched a new range of diesel engines targeting the stationary standby electric power market. Designed to meet key market nodes, the new 1600 Series ElectropaK, satisfies an important customer demand for power between the current Perkins 1106D and 2000 Series range.
The 1600 Series ElectropaK family comprises a range of full authority electronically controlled, turbocharged, air-to-air charge-cooled engines that have been developed to provide standby power in North America, as well as prime power in lesser regulated territories in a clean and cost-effective fashion with special emphasis placed on power density, reliability and durability.
Perkins 1600 Series is a six cylinder 9.3 liter diesel engine offering up to 275 kWe EPA certified standby power at 1800 rpm and 250 kWe prime power for lesser regulated territories: 50 Hz 1500 rpm ratings are also available for other territories.
Supplied fully fitted with radiators, charge coolers, air cleaners, pipes, hoses and mounting feet, Perkins ElectropaK engines provide a fully engineered turnkey package that can be integrated easily and efficiently to drive generator sets.
The tropical radiator, which is fitted as standard, ensures that there is high ambient clearance at even the highest temperatures. With little or no derate the unit can produce its maximum output virtually anywhere in the world.
Built for durable and economic use, the 1600 Series’ operating and maintenance costs are low thanks to its reduced fuel consumption. Whole life costs have been lowered through a recommended 500-hour service interval; the standard Perkins warranty and the availability of Perkins extended service contracts.
