Working together with Dalby Maskin Quarry and Recycling in Sweden, by switching to Volvo Penta engines, Dalby Maskin and Volvo Penta have achieved fuel savings of up 20 litres of fuel per hour per crusher. At the same time service intervals times have been able to be increased from 250 hours to 1,000 hours. Volvo Penta has been field-testing engines in partnership with quarry and recycling company Dalby Maskin, at their site in Uppsala, Sweden, since 2010. What started as a two-year field-testing project for a Stage 3B engine in a rock crusher, soon expanded into a request from the customer to repower their other crushers, as well as Stage IV and Stage V testing in crushers and a screener. Dalby Maskin says that by switching its four crushers and a screener to Volvo Penta engines, Dalby Maskin Quarry and Recycling is saving over €100,000 a year in fuel costs.
“After seeing how reliable and fuel-efficient the engine was during the field test, we knew it made financial sense to repower our other crushers and make the switch from a Volvo Penta competitor’s engine to a Volvo Penta model,” explains Jesper Sundström, Quarry Operations Manager at his family’s business, Dalby Maskin. “Volvo Penta had some great ideas about how to reduce fuel consumption, noise, and rpm (revolutions per minute) with a smaller engine while still getting the performance we needed – and they were right. We went from this competitor’s 15-liter engine to a Volvo Penta 13-liter engine. Since making the change, we’ve cut fuel consumption by up to 20 liters per hour (l/h). Previously, the service interval was 250 hours but now we have a 1000-hour interval between oil changes. And thanks to lower engine revs and smaller engine displacement, we don’t have to change the air filter that often. Within a couple of years, the engines pay for themselves – so there is a good business case.”
