Perkins Develops Engine Migration Strategy

December 18, 2013

Perkins will perform modifications in migrating used Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim engines to countries with varying fuel quality and sulphur content.

“We’ve undertaken extensive testing, analysis and field validation on our Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim engines. Above 130 kW (175 hp), our engine systems will not require any modification to operate in countries with higher sulphur fuel,” said Product Manager Dave Entwistle.

The company will offer authorized modification processes on these engines. These processes include decertification to remove the after treatment, enabling operation in countries with higher fuel sulphur. These processes will be available through Perkins distributors in 2014.

In support of the Stage IIIB/Tier 4 Interim used equipment migration to lesser regulated countries, Perkins is working with many of its distributors in these territories, each of who will have access to service training, parts stock, service tooling and product information, including detailed information on specific modification processes.
