Perkins Hybrids On Show

Perkins will debut three new “future hybrid offerings” at the bauma trade show in Munich in April.

The company said that over the years it has significantly invested in hybrid engine research and development projects and added that at bauma it will feature “a range of technologies that will add real value to OEMs as they design the next generation of off-highway machines.”

Matt Coleman, Perkins product director, said: “For construction machines, it’s not sufficient to simply carry over hybrid or electric technologies from other sectors such as truck, automobiles or marine. The duty cycles, operating conditions and packaging constraints for off-highway machines drive the need for specific configurations that are highly customised to the individual application.

“Through our close technical collaboration with our OEMs, and using a huge amount of real field data, we can develop solutions which are truly relevant to the construction sector. By collaborating with Perkins, OEMs can accelerate their research and development programmes, saving themselves time and money.”

The hybrid-electric, hybrid-mechanical and hybrid-hydraulic power technologies being shown by Perkins complement the existing 0.5 – 18 L range of diesel engines, the company said. Also on show will be the company’s Syncro 3.6 litre engine, pictured.
