Perkins has introduced a hydraulic-hybrid engine which can be used on a wide range of machines across a power range of 6-597 kW (8-800 hp). 

  • Incorporates hydraulic pump and pressure accumulator within engine system
  • Pump recovers energy and stores it within accumulator as the machine brakes
  • Accumulator can then supply energy back into engine via the pump to provide additional power when required
  • Offers potential to lower running costs and further reduce emissions
  • Enabling hybrid recovery and storage to take place within engine system simplifies installation for OEMs
