Power Solutions International 32-Liter Engine Achieves EPA Certification
The 32-liter engine is part of PSI’s expanded family of Heavy Duty engines, which range from 8.1-liter to 65-liter of displacement and 70 kWe to 1.2 MW of natural gas power. The 32-liter engine is rated at 500-650 kWe, and like other PSI Heavy Duty engines, is fitted with PSI’s proven custom fuel and emission control systems, designed to provide premium, application-specific performance.
“PSI continues to lead the way with technology, power density and speed to market in the gas space,” said
Miller added that the certification positions PSI very well to deliver a range of cost-competitive, low-emissions power generation products that oil and gas customers are looking for. In recent years, the oil and gas sector has increasingly sought alternatives to diesel in order to provide more flexibility in terms of the optimization and configuration of power generation operations, choice of fuel, storage and transport, as well as to improve fuel efficiency and lower emissions.
PSI’s systems are used globally in stationary and mobile power generation applications supporting standby, prime, distributed generation, demand response, and co-generation power (CHP). Its 32-liter engine is largely designed for energy market applications such as power generation, oil and gas exploration and other industrial sectors. The company will focus its initial launch on the oil and gas standby and emergency standby power markets.
PSI’s future plans for the 32-liter engine include certification for its use with wellhead natural gas fuel, which will provide customers with even more flexibility. The company is targeting Q42018 of this year as an availability date for that product.
