The two companies intend to equip the high-performance harvester PALESSE GS16 with an engine compliant with the Stage V environmental standard of the European Union. This Belarusian harvester is designed for large agricultural enterprises.
In addition to meeting Stage V requirements “Gomselmash” wants the new harvester to offer low operational costs and high reliability. “Gomselmash” believes the Perkins 2206J-E13TA engine with the output capacity of up to 380kW (520hp), an innovative exhaust technology, and low costs of installation and operation fits the bill.
After discussing requirements for installing the Perkins engine in detail “Gomselmash” specialists thoroughly studied the engine's digital model. It was necessary to visualize the engine's placement and design and make the necessary durability calculations. The engine's installation went through thorough testing.
