Tier 4i/Stage IIIb engine conversion kit will be available for Volvo machines



From the second quarter of 2014 Volvo CE customers will be able to have their Tier 4i/Stage IIIb machines fitted with a special engine conversion kit. This kit will enable Volvo owners to sell their used machines on to countries where high-sulphur fuels are still used. The conversion kit works by protecting the Volvo engines against high sulphur levels, while still meeting Volvo internal design standards.

 “We know that some of our customers export their used machines to countries outside of the US or EU and must operate on a different type of fuel. We want to assure customers that there will still be a market for Tier 4i/Stage IIIb-compliant machines abroad,” says Alan Berger, Vice President Product Platforms

Used without the conversion kit, Volvo’s Tier 4i/Stage IIIb engines would not operate correctly due to the high-sulphur fuel used in many non-regulated countries. The conversion kit, however, facilitates the reliability of a machine after export.

“There is increasing demand outside of the US and EU for high quality machines. Now with the conversion kit, Volvo machines can be sold in these markets, which was not previously possible,” says Berger.

Ends.
