Generac Power Systems, a manufacturer of standby and portable power generation equipment, has entered into a strategic partnership with and Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT). Beginning in 2010, FPT will supply Generac with a wide range of industrial diesel engines for use in gensets with outputs ranging from 60 to 350 kW.

FTP says its engines require 37% less oil and feature best-in-class
600-hour oil and filter change intervals. The power density provided by
turbocharging and enhanced injection systems allows performance usually
achieved with bigger size engines, says the company, providing obvious
benefits in lower fuel consumption and smaller size.

Allen Gillette, senior vice president, engineering, Generac, states,"As
FPT products are developed to reduce engine emissions while improving
fuel consumption, they will aid Generac in continuing to meet the new
exhaust emissions standards."
