Perkins unveils advanced 2806FA-E18TAG CPCBIV+ certified engine in India

The 2806FA platform provides excellent cold load acceptance and meets ISO 8528-5 class G2 performance.

Perkins announced new 2806FA CPCBIV+ certified ratings for the Indian electric power generation industry. The platform will cover two key power nodes, with the 2806FA-E18TAG1 providing up to 477 kW mechanical power at 50 Hz while the 2806FA-E18TAG2 delivers up to 595 kW mechanical power at 50 Hz. With over 90 years of design experience and over 3 million Perkins-powered generator sets operating worldwide, Perkins understands the needs of the power generation industry. This knowledge and expertise have driven the design and development of the 2806FA-E18TAG, a new engine developed specifically for India that will also be built in the country at our Hosur facility.

The 2806FA platform provides excellent cold load acceptance and meets ISO 8528-5 class G2 performance. Steady-state stability at constant speed and load achieves ISO8528-5 class G3 performance. This performance makes the 2806FA ideally suited to various electric power applications. From a stationary prime power source to a mobile unit serving the rental sector, the 2806FA performs seamlessly, generating dependable power for everything from job sites to critical installations, including hospitals and data centres.

The 2806FA is economical as well; with an improved fuel efficiency over its CPCBII predecessor and an excellent diesel exhaust fluid-to-fuel ratio, the 2806FA helps control the cost of operation. After treatment, the high-efficiency selective catalytic reduction (SCR) is paired with a 66-litre diesel exhaust fluid tank that enables extended run time between fills.

Keeping the power on

“Reliable electric power is not an option; it’s a fundamental need to keep operations running, whether for standby when the mains power fails or to meet onsite prime power requirements,” said Abhinav Gupta, general sales manager – South Asia. “Our engines are engineered and expertly crafted to provide reliable, stable and sustainable power for our customers, with the new 2806FA being the latest in a long line of products that also deliver a low total cost of ownership for our customers in India,” he added.

For generator manufacturers and end users looking to reduce their greenhouse gas emissions, the 2806FA can, subject to the fuel used meeting Perkins’ fuel specifications, run with biodiesel up to B20 based on a 20 percent dilution of biodiesel with standard diesel or on 100 percent hydrotreated vegetable oil (HVO). 

Helping generator set end users maximise their investment

The 2806FA produces up to 595 kW mechanical at 50 Hz. The engine features the latest electronics with a single, on-engine electronic control module (ECM) that simplifies wiring harnesses, eases installation, supports future diagnostics and is fully capable of integration with customers’ telematics solutions. The ECM also manages all aspects of aftertreatment operation without operator input.

Together, we power ahead

The new 2806FA-E18TAG1 and 2806FA-E18TAG2 join Perkins’s full line-up of power solutions developed to meet the needs of customers worldwide for reduced emissions. As with all Perkins engines, the new 2806FA is supported by the global support network of 88 distributors covering 185 countries, ensuring stable and sustainable electric power when customers need it, where they need it and how they need it.
