  • The smooth operation of this both robust and well‐balanced diesel engine series results in minimal levels of vibrations and noise, as well as controlled emission levels.
  • The state‐of‐the‐art, high‐tech injection and highly efficient charging system, with low internal losses, contributes to efficient combustion and low fuel consumption.
  • Engines are equipped with the EMS (Engine Management System), an electronically controlled processing system which optimizes engine performance. It also includes advanced facilities for diagnostics and fault tracing.
