Mahindra Powerol announced its entry into the higher kVA diesel generators (DG) segment with the launch of its all new range of 250/320 kVA DGs, which are powered by the Mahindra mPower series of engines. Designed at Mahindra Research Valley, its R&D hub in Chennai and manufactured at its Chakan plant near Pune, this new 9.3 litre engine range is the latest addition to Mahindra Powerol’s mPOWER series and comes equipped with the technologically advanced CRD engine.
The CRD engines are powered with the advanced Common Rail Diesel Engine (CRDe) technology. This technology is future ready and best known for heavy-duty performance and fuel efficiency. It significantly reduces pollution by going beyond the standard emission norms.
The 250 kVA diesel generator is priced at Rs 12.5 lakh + GST (ex-works) and 320 kVA diesel generator is priced at Rs 16 lakh + GST (ex-works).
Speaking at the launch, Hemant Sikka, President – Chief Purchase Officer, Powerol & Spares Business, Mahindra & Mahindra said, “Today’s launch marks our foray into the higher kVA diesel generator segment, with our own engines, which in turn will define a new segment and consumer group for us. At Mahindra, it is our constant endeavour to offer advanced and accessible technologies to our consumers and our all new range of 250/320 kVA DGs with CRDe technology bears testimony to this philosophy. This future ready CRDe technology is set to deliver lesser emissions and higher performance at a lower operating cost, thereby raising the bar in customer centricity. We will continue to innovate and thus offer the best-in-class products and services from the Mahindra Powerol stable.”
The high block loading capacity of the Mahindra Powerol DG sets enhances the DG performance against a high instantaneous load, which is useful for heavy-duty applications. The new range of DG sets is equipped with Mahindra’s DiGi-SENSE technology, which makes it a Smart DG. The performance of Smart DG sets can be monitored real-time remotely from anywhere, thereby improving the uptime of the DG sets.
