Normet has launched its new L-size equipment offering with Stage V emission class engines on 3rd of November 2020. Stage V engine technology reduces the diesel particles significantly providing cleaner working environment for the people underground.
Improving Safety and Comfort with a new cabin and platform
L-series Stage V offering is equipped with Normet’s new FOPS/ROPS (Falling-Objective Protective Structure/Roll-Over Protective Structure) approved front cabin, which offers superior visibility, great ergonomics and low noise level, ensuring safe and comfortable driving. The improvements with the new platform include for example automated retardation control for safe and controlled decline driving and axel suspension which greatly improves driving comfort and equipment durability by reducing vibrations. Safe driving and operation of equipment are ensured by a new control system including machine condition monitoring and data recording systems.
Collaboration with Volvo Penta in Stage V technology
Normet’s new Stage V L-sized platform uses Volvo Penta’s latest, proven Stage V technology. Engine installation design was done in jointly with Volvo Penta to ensure the best possible integration of the engine and the platform for uncompromised safety and performance and easy maintenance. Normet’s plan is to use both, Volvo Penta’s Stage V and Stage 3A engines to streamline its global engine offering. Normet will gradually expand the Stage V offering to other Normet equipment.
