The Belarusian agricultural machinery manufacturer Gomselmash and the British company Perkins are working on an innovative harvester, BelTA has learned.

The two companies intend to equip the high-performance harvester Palesse GS16 with an engine compliant with the Stage V environmental standard of the European Union. This Belarusian harvester is designed for large agricultural enterprises.

In addition to meeting Stage V requirements Gomselmash wants the new harvester to offer low operational costs and high reliability. Gomselmash believes the Perkins 2206J-E13TA engine with the output capacity of up to 380kW (520hp), an innovative exhaust technology, and low costs of installation and operation fits the bill.

After discussing requirements for installing the Perkins engine in detail Gomselmash specialists thoroughly studied the engine’s digital model. It was necessary to visualize the engine’s placement and design and make the necessary durability calculations. The engine’s installation went through thorough testing.
