The 8‐litre power generation engine offers industry‐leading power density and a compact size, combined with low fuel consumption and noise levels.

Volvo Penta’s new D8 Stage II and IIIA/Tier 3 engine further strengthens the company’s robust range of genset engines. The D8 base engine has been used globally for a wide variety of applications across the Volvo Group. Now, Volvo Penta engineers have perfected the design and optimised the D8 for the power generation segment.

“The proven D8 design is based on mature technology concepts that have undergone hundreds of thousands of testing hours and real‐world use,” said Kristian Vekas, product manager for genset engines at Volvo Penta. “With the D8, our customers will benefit from 100 per cent proven, reliable components. We have ensured our solution will function with the required performance and reliability levels in all the applications, climates and environments our customers operate in.”

Both the D8 Stage II and IIIA/Tier 3 engines feature high‐tech injection and charging systems with low internal losses, contributing to excellent combustion and low fuel consumption. They have been built on the dependable in‐line six design and have been developed to produce smooth and vibration‐free operation with low noise levels.

“The new, modern D8 engine has been built with a high power to weight ratio, giving it industry‐leading power density and an extremely compact design for its power class,” added Vekas. “It has been designed for quick, easy and economical installation as well as ease of operation and maintenance.”

The powerful and economical D8 will mainly be used as a reliable source of back‐up power, as well as cost‐effective primary power generation in areas where energy is scarce. It can be used for both mobile and stationary power generation applications, depending on local emission regulations.

The Stage II compliant D8 engine (TAD841‐843GE) is a dual speed premium engine. Switchable between 1,500 rpm (50 Hz) and 1,800 rpm (60 Hz), it delivers up to 275 kWm at prime power and is also available in three power nodes: 256, 301 and 326kVA at 1,500 rpm (50 Hz) at prime power.

Similarly, the EU Stage IIIA/Tier 3 Certificate compliant D8 (TAD851‐853GE) genset engine is also a premium dual speed engine, switchable between 1,500 rpm (50 Hz) and 1,800 rpm (60 Hz), it delivers up to 274 kWm at prime power.
