Volkswagen Power Systems presenting new modular industrial systems at Intermat 2012

Volkswagen Power Systems is showing its new modular industrial power systems for the first time at the construction machinery fair Intermat in Paris. The company is highlighting a 3.6L-VR6-gaseous fuel engine and new diesel engines with modular peripherals which will be rated at 55 kW (74 hp) and meet EU 97/68 IIIB and US EPA Tier 4 standards from 2013 onwards. These units are based on automotive engines.

The basic offerings include diesel- and gaseous fuel engines in three fixed installation space cubes. By means of seven add-on modules, the customer can then make an individual configuration of the unit.

A variety of exhaust systems, air intake routings, fuel modules, charge air piping, SAE-power handovers and a universal, prewired E-box interact with mechanical or electric cooling fans to produce power systems tailored to any application—from mobile machinery such as lift trucks, via construction equipment to multi-role vehicles for municipal services.

Volkswagen Power Systems will be exhibiting at the Intermat for the third time. This show is held every third year near Paris, focusing on construction equipment and related accessories.

Volkswagen has been selling industrial engines since 1952. With its second generation of water-cooled diesel units, the company gained footholds in the lift truck market. To date, Volkswagen Power Systems has delivered more than 700,000 engines.
