Revolutionary Perkins engines deliver a significant uplift in power at MEE
The Perkins Engines team returns to Middle East Electricity (MEE) 2018 with a show-stopping line-up at the Dubai World Trade Centre on March 6-8. Perkins is determined to underline its strong position in the region’s booming power sector.

“You will find our engines throughout the world delivering the power you need when you need it,” said Trevor Toulson, Perkins director of sales and distribution for EAME & CIS and Perkins EP business strategy. “This ranges from hotels to hospitals, in frozen wastelands or expansive deserts or within rental equipment at construction sites. Our products put power in place where there is no other source, in remote locations throughout the world.”

Among the highlights at MEE will be a first look at three new additions to an already extensive Perkins engine range as the new 7 litre 1206, 9.3 litre 1706 and 18 litre 2806 engines make their debut at this year’s event. Each is designed to deliver high power density with reduced operating costs and market-leading performance, all from a reduced package size.

Perkins will also display its broader range of engines, designed to meet the comprehensive needs of all key sectors in the EP market. This includes the ultra-compact Perkins® 403A-11G and the 4008-30TAG, a powerhouse for electricity generation and now with an improved service life. Breakthrough aftermarket offerings, including the Perkins® SmartCap and Perkins® My Engine App, will also be on display.

More than 1,500 international exhibitors and 21,000 visitors from 130 countries across the Middle East, Asia and Africa attend MEE. “It’s the ideal platform to promote our extended, market-leading range of high power density engines and to engage with global Original Equipment Manufacturers (OEMs) and users of our engines,” said Jaz Gill, Perkins vice president of global sales, marketing, service and aftermarket parts. “In this forum, we will showcase our innovative Perkins products and leaps forward in the aftermarket, which support electric power customers around the world who rely on Perkins to meet their needs.”
