Farmers are among our greatest conservation allies. They raise livestock and cultivate crops, fruit, vegetables and other agricultural products while caring for the environment on which their livelihoods depend. As the global population continues to grow farmers are under constant pressure to increase production and improve farm efficiency while reducing operating costs and reducing greenhouse gas emissions. Volvo Penta shares this common goal for a sustainable future.
Leading agriculture equipment manufacturer – and long-time Volvo Penta customer – ROPA is benefitting from using a Volvo Penta Stage V D16 off-road engine in its popular Tiger 6 harvester. ROPA has a broad range of products for harvesting sugar beets and potatoes that are used in over 40 countries worldwide. ROPA has been field-testing the D16 in two machines since early October, clocking over 400 operational hours combined. In that time, ROPA has experienced unparalleled performance without any unplanned downtime.
“During the very short harvest season, many of our machines run 1,000 or more hours,” explains Michael Gruber, head of technology at ROPA. “If the engine fails or performs poorly then that means loss of productivity and income for farmers. Therefore, the engines in our machines need to be fuel-efficient, have high power, high torque, high performance at low speeds, a good service network and outstanding durability. It’s a lot to ask for, but this is why we chose Volvo Penta.” To read the full story please follows the Volvo Penta website link below.
