Perkins launches new electronic diesel engine

Perkins has launched its 4006 electronic diesel engine, developed for the Indian power generation market. The 4006 electronic engine delivers performance in a 6-cylinder, 23-litre configuration and gives users a number of significant advantages over its competitive alternatives at the 750 kVA prime node. The electronic engine will be made at the company’s Aurangabad facility after meeting the Central Pollution Control Board–II norms. The engine has simplified service requirements and the ability to operate across a broad range of ambient temperatures and altitudes. It also provides a superior block or first load capability, which creates value for customer segments in manufacturing, mining, hospitals and other applications.
