4016-61TRS Spark Ignited Gas Engine

< Back


The Perkins 4000 Series gas engines give you the versatility you need for today's power generation market. They deliver the same high efficiency performance as their diesel counterparts and meet increasingly stringent emissions standards. They can run on landfill gas, digester gas, biogas and coal-bed mine gas and, with exceptional power-to-weight ratios and compact design, they are easy to transport and install.

Understanding your need

Our commitment to excellence goes far beyond the engine itself. Through our 4000 Series Gas Centres of Excellence, we build strong and trusted relationships with you. Not only do our Centres of Excellence distributors keep your engine running in peak condition, they also have an in-depth knowledge of power generation in your market.

They understand your environment, your local emissions standards and the reliability of your grid. And they know what works for your specific circumstances.

Wide range of methane-based gases

Gas engines in the series are up to 61.12 litres, with both inline and vee form designs and from 6-16 cylinders.

Engines can be fuelled by a wide range of methane-based gases, including landfill gas, digester gas, biogas and coal bed mine gas.
