Since the beginning of 2018, the Hosur, India facility is now a manufacturing base for Perkins® 2000 Series engines. The Perkins team is now producing the 500 kVA 2506D and the 625 kVA 2806D in Hosur.
“With products built and shipped within India, we continue to demonstrate our commitment to serving customers here with world class products,” said Pankaj Kumar Jha, Perkins Engines general sales manager for India. “This positions us well to meet the needs of our Indian customers.”
More than 100,000 Perkins 2000 Series engines are in operation around the world today. The 2506D and 2806D are 6 cylinder, electronic, direct injection engines. They are turbocharged and air-to-air charge cooled with certifications up to Europe Stage IIIA/U.S. EPA Tier 3 and to India’s CPCBII emissions standards. Developed from a proven heavy-duty industrial base, the engines offer superior performance and reliability. They are part of the 12.5L – 18.1L 2000 Series ElectropaK engine family, which is the ideal choice for prime and standby power generation from 350-750 kVA.
‘We continue to focus on the India market, as we have the right products, with the right support network,” said Abhinav Gupta, Perkins Engines south Asia marketing manager.
