Perkins new hybrid technologies are being shown for the first time in the UK at Plantworx 2019.
The hybrid-electric, mechanical and hydraulic power technologies make their UK debut alongside Perkins new 0.5 to 18 litre EU Stage V engine range on stand DA7 at Plantworx, The Showground, Peterborough from June 11-13, 2019.
Perkins is reinforcing its commitment to the construction sector with a major presence at the show, the UK’s largest live working construction event.
“Construction is a critical market for us,” Jaz Gill, Perkins Vice President global sales, marketing, service and parts said. “We power key applications including hydraulic excavators, wheel loaders, backhoe loaders, skid steer loaders, dumpers, telehandlers, dozers, rock crushers and pavers, among many more.

“Our customers appreciate and value the deep expertise we bring to their projects – thanks to our rich heritage over more than 85 years – on how to install and integrate our engines into their machines to maximise performance.”
Perkins is showcasing a range of engines that meet Stage V emission standards:
At Plantworx, Perkins is highlighting three hybrid power solutions through three engines, all at 75 kW. To demonstrate modularity and flexibility, all three hybrid solutions are based on the Perkins® Syncro 2.8 litre.
The first technologies to be shown are:
Hybrid-electric: There are several ways to incorporate the electric motor or generator, with Perkins preferred arrangement delivering excellent fuel saving benefits while moderating the installation impact and minimising the cost impact on the machine. The flexibility of the system provides opportunities for further efficiency and functionality improvements in the whole machine through use of 48-volt electrics.
Hybrid-mechanical: This stores energy in a high-speed flywheel which can be delivered back to the machine. This is particularly useful in hybridising machines that run a cyclic operation and need very intense bursts of additional power. Apart from the very quick energy release, the advantage over hybrid electric is in installation size.
Hybrid-hydraulic: This stores energy in hydraulic accumulators. In some machines this can be the most practical and cost-effective hybrid solution as it easily integrates into existing machine hydraulic systems. Software and integration of machine systems are key to achieving great savings from this technology.
As the world becomes ever more digitised Perkins is leading the way with some of the most useful and intuitive digital products on the market.
An array of customer focused products will feature at Plantworx including the Perkins® My Engine App, which bring major benefits to machine users, providing service reminders and important parts and consumables information. By giving owners and operators valuable information on their phone, engines can be kept running effectively with minimum effort.
Perkins is also showing machine users how quick and simple it is to buy genuine parts online, direct from Perkins. The company’s UK online parts shop opened in 2018 and Perkins is now ready to open its latest online shop in Ireland. More details on this will be announced at the show.
