Volvo Pentas most powerful genset engine yet, the D17, to launch in North American

Volvo Penta will showcase its most powerful genset engine to date, the 705 kWe D17, at the POWERGEN International® 2024
exhibition and summit taking place January 23-25 at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center in New Orleans. The solution is engineered to deliver exceptional fuel economy with minimal maintenance – offering up to 5% less fuel consumption per kWh than its lower-displacement D16 counterpart.

At booth 2618, Volvo Penta will demonstrate how the compact, in-line 6-cylinder D17 engine is driving more uptime and lower total cost of ownership in various stand-by and prime power genset applications. Recent innovations in combustion technology, including a modernized fuel-injection system with a common-rail design, enable the solution to deliver high fuel efficiency and lower exhaust emission levels. The 17-liter diesel engine utilizes dual-stage turbochargers and heavy-duty steel pistons for excellent power density.

“The D17 engine is a high-performance solution that’s designed to drive industry-leading fuel economy for customers to address both their current power demands and evolving energy objectives,” said Darren Tasker, Vice President of Industrial Sales for Volvo Penta. “In extending Volvo Penta’s robust range of industrial genset engines, the D17 marks a meaningful step in our energy evolution and path toward decarbonization.”
