Volvo Penta TWD1643GE diesel engineThe 16-liter Volvo Penta TWD1643GE diesel engine is especially designed for power-generation applications. The engine, says Volvo Penta, “is optimized for dual speed, 1500 and 1800 rpm, as required for the power-generation market.” Features of the engine include dual-stage turbochargers (each turbocharger working with its own charge-air-cooling system), a two-stage radiator and Volvo Penta’s electronic EMS 2 engine controller, which employs CAN bus technology and allows using either Volvo Penta engine-instrument and control equipment, or the user’s own instrumentation and controls via an interface in the EMS 2.
