Volvo & Emissions

As a trusted supplier of industrial engines, Volvo Penta has a continuous responsibility to reduce our products’ environmental footprints. This is why they’ve chosen to only offer engines that comply with Stage II/Tier 2 and upwards. By closely following the development of emission regulations, Volvo has been able to proudly offer our customers optimized solutions for these steps. The end result is an engine that complies with legislation demands while never compromising on performance and efficiency.

Check out a few tips from Darren Tasker, Vice President, Industrial, for Volvo Penta of the Americas:

Do Tier 4 Final engines have similar levels of fuel-efficiency than earlier tier levels?

Volvo Penta’s Tier 4 Final engines are more fuel efficient due to the precise control of the fuel-air mixture controlled by the Engine Control Module. By reducing the particulate matter and NOx in the engine with the SCR system, we have eliminated the need for additional Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR). The result is reduced fuel consumption and better reliability.

How proven are Tier 4 Final engines in the field?

Volvo’s Tier 4 Final engine technology is field proven. The sister company, Volvo Trucks, pioneered the implementation of Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) as a key part of the Tier 4 Final solution for over-the-road trucks in North America in 2010. As a result, they were able to leverage this proven technology that has been deployed in over 270,000 Trucks in the Americas.
