Perkins steps up

TI Cycles of India chose to install generating sets powered by two Perkins® 4012- 46TAG0A engines for both its plants in Chennai and Rajpura to manage the erratic grid power supply situation. Perkins powered generator sets were chosen over other brands due to their better performance and reliability.

Perkins engines provides results

The Perkins 4012, 12 cylinder, engine has an excellent power to weight ratio. They are compact, easy to operate and have good ambient performance capabilities.

We have used ‘Sterling‘ generator sets powered by Perkins engines in our premises for over a year now and have not faced any issues. Sterling Generators provide good product support assistance. We are delighted to recommend Perkins powered generator sets to our group of companies.
