Volvo Construction Equipment will offer an engine conversion kit that will enable Volvo owners to sell their Tier 4-Interim machines to countries where high-sulphur fuels are still used.
The conversion kit works by protecting the Volvo engines against high sulphur levels. It will be available during the second quarter of 2014.
“We know that some of our customers export their used machines to countries outside of the US or EU and must operate on a different type of fuel. We want to assure customers that there will still be a market for Tier 4-Interim/Stage IIIb-compliant machines abroad,” says Alan Berger, vice president, Product Platforms, for Volvo.
