Although the Perkins 2800 range of diesel engines caters for both prime and standby generation, the engines are proving particularly popular for the standby market sector. They can deliver 514-652 kWm engine power and 591-750 kVA generator output, along with mechanically operated unit fuel injectors, electronic control and carefully matched turbocharging. And, with flexible packaging, the Perkins 2800 range will fit into whatever space you have available within your equipment.
