John Deere Power Systems extends generator drive range


John Deere Power Systems has announced it is extending its range with the launch of a new standby power generator drive engine. The 200kVA prime/225 kVA generator drive engine is the first of a new updated range that will cover all major nodes from 30 to 200kVA prime.

Built at the company’s factory in Saran, France, the engine is a PowerTech M 6.8-liter, featuring a mechanical fuel injection system and aftercooling which provides high load acceptance and fuel efficiency benefits. To simplify maintenance, engineers added single-side servicing and a 500-hour service interval, while the 50Hz/60Hz dual frequency ratings make it possible for OEMs to cover different geographical requirements with a single product.

Arnaud Blanchard, product manager at John Deere Power Systems France, said, “As with all our engines, we tested it in the most arduous conditions to guarantee performance in diverse, real-life applications.

“As an entirely independent engine manufacturer of diesel driven power generation engines, our power systems offer OEMs unbiased engine expertise and a complete range of products that meet emissions regulations, from non-regulated through to EPA Final Tier 4.”

The non-certified 200-kVA engine can be used for stationary generator sets in EU countries, while also being used for mobile units in other, non-regulated, countries.
