FPT Industrial Presents its New G-Drive High Power Range at Middle East Electricity 2013



FPT Industrial, a world-wide Power Generation full line supplier, presents its renewed range of products and services at Middle East Electricity (Dubai, February, 17-19, Stand S1C40).

FPT Industrial’s line up, based on four engine families dedicated to three different product configurations (G-Drive, open and soundproof gen-sets), is now enriched with a new product offer in the field of G-Drives.

The new products have been developed in order to meet the demand of those countries where the request, in absence of stringent emission legislations, is for high power, low fuel consumption and reduced dimensions.

Specifically, the NEF 4.5 liter engine, previously available in a configuration from 47 to 98 kW, has now been upgraded in a range from 52 to 120 kW; the NEF 6.7 liter unit, with mechanical injection pump, has been upgraded from 156 to 170 kW. These goals have been achieved thanks to combustion optimization through high performance injectors and specific fuel pump calibration.

Also the offer of CURSOR Series G-Drive applications, through dedicated and specific datasets, has been improved. Customers can now opt for a 300 kW 8.7 liter engine, instead of a 10.3 liter in the same power range.

The new FPT Industrial’s Power Generation line-up features a power increase up to 20% versus the previous engine range; the new engines are also power density leaders on the 120 kW and 300 kW nodes, which means up to +11% increase versus competitors average.

One other important benefit for the customer is their reduced dimensions and displacement. Using a 4 instead of 6 cylinder engine for the 120 kW power node or a 8,7 liters instead of 10,3 liters for the 300 kW, indeed guarantee ease of installation.

This aspect is very important , for example, in case of rental versions, that constantly need to be moved from one site to the other, or in the case of stationary applications where space is a constraint.

Furthermore, these downsized engines are more cost efficient in terms of consumption, though guaranteeing the same quality and performance of a bigger one.
