Perkins are pleased to introduce its first electronic engine to the Perkins® 4000 Series family. The 4008 electronic engine is designed specifically to produce lower emissions and provide competitive performance at the same time. This Tier 3 emissions capable engine meets the electric power industry’s growing demand for greener power along with superior performance and reliability.

The 4008D-E30TAG is a turbocharged and air-to-air charge cooled, 8 cylinder diesel engine with full electronic control enabling lower emissions, easy diagnostic capability. This engine also offers world leading load acceptance and ambient de-rate capability. Along with exceptional power to weight ratio, this engine also benefits from low cost of ownership and long service intervals; all characteristics essential to the power generation market.
