Power Solutions International Inc. (PSI) announced the introduction of its newly designed and tooled 8.8-liter engine. This state-of-the-art model, which is designed, tooled and manufactured in the U.S., offers industrial, bus and truck OEMs a fully-integrated drop-in solution that provides power performance with maximum fuel efficiency, emissions certification and fuel flexibility.
According to a press release, PSI also offers unique in-house design, prototyping, engineering and testing capabilities that enable it to customize the 8.8-liter to the specific power, emissions or engineering needs of OEMs, in addition to the manufacturing capacity to meet large volume requirements.
PSI will unveil this new product at the RVIA National RV Trade Show Nov. 29-Dec. 2 in Louisville, Ky., and at Power Gen International in Las Vegas on December 13th, 2011.
The company said that the new 8.8-liter engine extends PSI’s tradition of durable, high-performance turnkey solutions in the industrial and off-road markets to on-road markets. The newly-tooled engine fills a key market gap with a cost-effective product capable of fully delivering on power, efficiency, emissions and fuel-flexibility needs across a wide range of applications, including school buses, waste-hauling trucks and light-duty delivery truck uses. PSI will also be integrating the new system with existing industrial customers.
“On-road markets have been actively seeking medium-duty engine replacements as existing big block inventories have wound down,” said Dan Grohoski, director of new business development for PSI. “Most current offerings are compromises or partial fixes. PSI now offers them a total integrated solution–no compromises–with the new 8.8-liter engine.”
