Volvo Penta has strengthened its generation engine portfolio by introducing a D13 power node, the TAD1346GE 500 kVA

?The addition of the 500 kVA power node to our D13 genset engine is another step in this Volvo Penta journey,? commented Kristian Vekas, product manager for generator engines at Volvo Penta. ?We are constantly improving and expanding our offering to support our global customers? needs for today and tomorrow.?

Volvo Penta?s D13 500 kVA gives full power output the second it starts up ? an essential feature for a backup genset particularly for those being used in emergency/stand-by operations, such as in hospitals, pharmaceutical companies, or data centres.

Volvo Penta engines have gone through thousands of hours of rigorous testing and real-world use in a wide variety of applications across the Volvo Group in the toughest environments. The D13 500 kVA is characterised by its ability to immediately start and is a reliable power backup for emergency standby.

The D13 500 kVA is considerably smaller and lighter when compared to previous models resulting in a smaller engine room, smaller alternator, and ultimately fuel saving of 4-5% compared to previous models (also due to the quality and viscosity of the lubrication oil).

?This is a great addition to our strong full engine range,? concluded Giorgio Paris president of industrial, Volvo Penta. ?Volvo Penta is committed to continuing to improve today?s products to become even more reliable. But it?s not just about the final product, we are committed to supporting our customers every step of the way with a strong aftermarket support present in over 130 markets worldwide.?

Through its partnership with Al Masaood Power Division, Volvo Penta is showcasing the D13 power node at Middle East Energy between 7-9 March in Dubai.
