Volvo Penta launches 5-litre EU Stage V engine with 175kW
Modifications have been made to the base engine, turbo selection, and exhaust aftertreatment system to produce more power
Volvo Penta has upgraded the power of its D5 model from an initial output of 160 kW (218 hp) to a new maximum level of 175 kW (238 hp). The 5-liter EU Stage V engine, TAD580-582VE, is a four-cylinder unit. Modifications have been made to the base engine, turbo selection, and exhaust aftertreatment system (EATS) in order to produce more power. The EATS includes diesel oxidation catalyst (DOC), diesel particulate filter (DPF; for D5-D13 models); selective catalytic reduction (SCR); and ammonia slip catalyst (ASC).
The D5 model is part of Volvo Penta’s EU Stage V range, which also includes D8, D11, D13 and D16 engines. The range as a whole has a power output of 105 to 575 kW (143-782 hp).
Erik Lundberg, product manager for industrial engines at Volvo Penta, said: “More power from the engine leads to better performance and higher productivity of the machine into which it is installed. It means that the engine can be used in a wider range of applications than previously thought, and of course it benefits OEMs and operators in meeting their requirements. In addition, it opens up the possibilities of customers being able to downsize in using our D5 instead of another larger engine.”
