Miron Thoms, Volvo Penta India
Our strong collaborations with OEMs on field tests, engine installation and application in the most abusive field conditions for several thousand hours during the design phase itself, has helped us develop robust heavy-duty engines.
Miron Thoms, Vice President & Head

We are working closely with OEMs for developing newer and more robust and durable engines so that they can perform efficiently in the toughest of project sites conditions.
We are designing electric engines to increase fuel efficiency, reduce emissions, and have greater torque for faster response time in the machines.We are doing a lot of R&D with OEMs equipment to bring more flexibility in the designof our engines so that they can fit every engine installation and application.

The association with OEMs is quite crucial to meet demand for high performance, reliability, fuel efficiency, and low emission. Our engines for industrial project sites are built to be versatile and can cover almost any application, including air compressors, crushers, mining equipment, port equipment, harvesters, etc; basically, every application where the TCO concept is of vital importance for the operator or fleet owner.

Our new Volvo Penta SCR System is maintenance-free and allows us to reduce more fuel consumption of the base engine as compared to BS CEV III.
Volvo Penta’s 5 engine models 5L, 8L, 11L,13L and 16L and their corresponding power ratings are available with emission certifications like Tier 2, Tier 3, Tier 4f/BS CEV IV and Stage V. Our engines are designed to deliver high power and torque at lower RPM, thus contributing to fuel benefit. The viscous fans and the easily installed start/stop technology offered based on the application can further lower fuel consumption. So, operators benefit from higher efficiency as well as better productivity and therefore can earn more money.

Thanks to Volvo Penta’s low-end torque curves on every engine model, operating costs can be further improved with lower engine speeds during the work mode. In fact, all our products are designed to last long, even in the harshest environmental conditions. In India, we have a proven track record of almost 3 decades of operations during which, our engines not only withstand the most difficult drive cycles, but also work for an extremely long time before requiring an overhaul.

Our R&D and advanced engineering is aimed at enhancing equipment integration with our engines and give the equipment longer services intervals and ease of maintenance.
Our advanced engine engineering and after-treatment enables OEMs to design a modular drive line. This allows them to have a single engine room design for all emission regulations such as BS CEV II, III, IV and for 2025 V.

Our current customer base has been able to make an easy shift to the new engine, since we have managed to keep all the engines identical in every respect, and have only replaced the silencer with a new SCR-silencer combination, which will remain maintenance free. Our engines are compact and offer options like remote oil and fuel filter so that machine manufacturers can place filters at accessible locations. This reduces maintenance time and improves machine uptime. We offer extended service intervals up to 1000 hours as per our service guidelines, and without increasing the oil capacity.

We are working with the OEMs from the R&D phase to the design and development of the final product. Our joint working includes field tests and installation reviews, before production starts. Tests are conducted to validate air, oil, fuel filters, cooling systems, and maintenance practices, before the final product is rolled out.

However, the pandemic and the ongoing conflict in Europe has caused several bottlenecks in the international supply chains, along with short supply of electronic components used in engines, and production capacities not suited to meet rising demand – all of which are leading to unavailability or delayed supply of the products. The entire industry has been impacted, and we are working on solutions along with our business partners to meet demand, and also to reduce operating costs.
