Engines for standby and gen-set

  • 09-Jul-2008 03:58 EDT


Three engines from John Deere Power Systems—the PowerTech E 9.0 L and PowerTech 9.0 L and 13.5 L—were developed for use in standby as well as prime power gen-set applications. The PowerTech E offers 229 to 315 kW (307 to 422 hp) of standby power and features electronic controls, a fixed-geometry turbocharger, and a high-pressure common-rail fuel system to improve cold-start performance and engine-speed control. The PowerTech 9.0 L engine has a maximum power rating of 304 kW (408 hp) and offers a high-pressure common-rail fuel system, while the 13.5 L has a 456 kW (611 hp) maximum rating and an electronic unit injector fuel system. Both engines are suitable for markets requiring Stage II certification.
