John Deere Power Systems (JDPS), is launching its new 200 kVA prime/225 kVA standby power generator drive engine at the Middle East Electricity show in Dubai, the first of a new, updated generator drive range aimed at non-emissions regulated markets.
The launch of this new engine, built at the factory in France, expands John Deere’s
mechanically controlled engine portfolio to cover all major nodes from 30 to 200 kVA prime.
The engine is built on John Deere proven PowerTech M 6.8L platform and features a
mechanical fuel injection system and after-cooling which provides high load acceptance and
fuel efficiency in a competitive yet exceptionally reliable package.
In addition to the mechanically controlled fuel system, John Deere added other features to
simplify maintenance. These include single-side servicing and a 500-hour service interval.
The 50Hz/60Hz dual frequency ratings make it possible for OEMs to cover different
geographical requirements with one common product. “As with all our engines, we tested it
in the most arduous conditions to guarantee performance in diverse, real-life applications.”
says Arnaud Blanchard, product manager at John Deere Power Systems in Saran, France.
In EU countries, the non-certified 200-kVA engine can be used for stationary generator sets.
In non-regulated countries, it can additionally be used for mobile units.
As an entirely independent engine manufacturer of diesel driven power generation engines,
JDPS offers OEMs unbiased engine expertise and a complete range of products that meet
emissions regulations, from non-regulated through to EPA Final Tier 4. John Deere ranges in
displacement from 2.9L to 13.5L and covers generator drive ratings from 30 to 640 kVA.
With the John Deere extensive worldwide service network, end users never have far to go to
find expert assistance: more than 4,000 service locations worldwide provide customer
support when and where it is needed.
