Perkins has rolled out extended warranties for its 4000 Series of engines for primary power and standby engines, confident in their reliability based on nearly 20 years of experience developing and testing the range.

These warranties extend to one year of unlimited hours; two years or 6,000 hours for prime power users; or three years or 1,500 hours (with a maximum of 500 hours per year) for standby.

Perkins has invested heavily in the evolution of the 4000 Series over several decades to produce a range that is tough, durable, and delivers high power-to-weight ratios and a compact design, as well as consistent performance in the harshest conditions.

In all, the manufacturer has produced 50,000 engines from the range, up to 30% of which for use in primary power applications in the electricity sector, for some of the world’s biggest businesses.

With six models covering 26 power nodes from 750kVA to 2500 kVA, the 4000 Series units equips four diesel and gas engine platforms, ranging from six-cylinder diesel/gas engines with 23-litre capacities to a 16-cylinder diesel engine with a 61-litre capacity.

Victoria Reeves, product marketing manager, notes: “For more than 20 years, Perkins has made major investments in the design and manufacture of the 4000 Series. The current platform is so far removed from the original that it’s virtually unrecognisable.

“We launched the 4008 at the end of 2015 and, alongside the revamp of the 4006, 4012 and 4016, this completes the overall product line-up. Whether it’s for powering hospitals, telecoms, data centres or manufacturing plants, the 4000 Series provides dependable power 24/7, 365 days a year.”

“Today the 4000 Series is all about quality and reliability. Not just for standby, but for prime. Where quality and reliability are paramount, you can depend on the Perkins 4000 Series to keep the power on permanently.”

The 4000 Series is distributed in the Gulf, by Power Systems Gulf, a member of the Kanoo Group with responsibility for Bahrain, Kuwait, Oman, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, UAE and Yemen.
