Perkins to Show OEM Solutions, Battery Program at Bauma

Oct. 13, 2022

Perkins is showcasing a broad spectrum of solutions that are designed to address the needs of original equipment manufacturers (OEMs) and their customers at Bauma 2022, October 24-30 in Munich, Germany.

These solutions include engine technologies that lower greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions as well as expert technician services, flexible engine repower and replacement options, and genuine replacement parts.

Additionally, Perkins is engaging in a battery program as part of its ongoing initiative to help the company’s customer base of more than 800 OEMs excel during the energy transition.

“As the industry enters the energy transition away from carbon, our range of innovations shows how we’re helping customers improve job site performance, provide reliable electric power, and achieve business outcomes—all while improving efficiency and powering human progress,” said Jaz Gill, Perkins VP of global sales, marketing, service and parts. “From biodiesel and lower-carbon intensity fuels to battery power and hydrogen blends and beyond, our decade-long exploration into alternative fuels and highly collaborative approach have kept us moving steadily to more sustainable outcomes for our customers.”

Building on its hybrid-electric, hybrid-mechanical and hybrid-hydraulic programs launched in 2019, Perkins is strategically positioned to further help OEMs through the energy transition.

Perkins continues to invest in new engine technologies, including dual label certification for EU Stage V and U.S. EPA Tier 4-F. By optimizing the efficiency of the entire engine system from the air intake to the end of the exhaust pipe, Perkins has developed a full range of engines from 11 to 800 horsepower with an integrated suite of advanced technologies that not only reduce GHG emissions, but also deliver significant improvements in power density, performance and operating efficiency, the company says.

The emissions of carbon dioxide and other greenhouse gases associated with these engines can be reduced by up to 85 percent through the use of renewable, lower-carbon intensity fuels derived from sources including planted crops (soy, palm, rapeseed, etc.), used cooking oil, animal fat, biomass, algae, and others. Every industrial Perkins engine from the 400 Series through the 2800 Series can use low carbon-intensity fuels that meet the leading industry diesel fuel specifications.

The lithium-ion batteries are a robust, modular design and feature factory-installed telematics to optimize performance and packaging in off-highway applications. They are also being designed for recycling and reuse at the end of life to incorporate sustainability across their entire life cycle.
