Iveco Motors of North America Inc., a Fiat Powertrain Technologies (FPT) company, entered an agreement with Carson, CA-based MQ Power to power its KD Series industrial power generators with Iveco Motors’ NEF and CURSOR diesel gen-drives.

The NEF gen-drives supply net stand-by power outputs 77 to 290 hp (57 to 215 kW), and the CURSOR gen-drives supply net stand-by power outputs 285 to 535 hp (211 to 396 kW).

Iveco Motors NEF and CURSOR gen-drives will be available on six new MQ Power KD Series models with power outputs from 108 to 567 hp (80 kW up to 420 kW).

“We needed to find a supplier whose engines were Tier III compliant,” said Jim Rose, director of product management, MQ Power. “Iveco Motors Tier III compliant engines entered the North American marketplace at the perfect time, when some manufacturers were not offering Tier III engines, or servicing EPA requirements.”

Iveco Motors NEF and CURSOR engines are designed with technology that meets Tier III emissions requirements.

A rear gear drive design enables the noise levels to stay low and improves the cooling performance because of airflow on the front section of the engine.

The gen-sets require lubrication oil and filter replacement every 600 hours.

MQ Power will be equipping their lower output generators with Iveco Motors NEF 45TM1 and NEF 45TM2.

Both are turbocharged, after-cooled engines with two-valves-per-cylinder, four-cylinder inline configuration and a displacement of 4.5L.

They feature a mechanical fuel injection system that enables the gen-drives to have improved performance, less fuel consumption and lower noise levels.

The injection pump is equipped with an electronic governor control system for precise frequency control and fast load response.

MQ Power’s mid output generators will be equipped with Iveco Motors CURSOR 9, 10 and 13.

All CURSOR models are turbocharged, after-cooled engines with four-valves-per-cylinder, six-cylinder inline configuration and displacements of 8.7L, 10.3L and 12.9L, respectively.

They feature an electronic fuel injection system that enhances performance levels and decreases fuel consumption values to as low as 0.325 lb/hphr. The CURSOR 9 is equipped with an electronic common rail fuel system, and the CURSOR 10 and 13 have an electronic unit injector system.

“We believe Iveco Motors is the perfect match for MQ Power,” said Rose. “Its NEF and CURSOR gen-drives offer technologically advanced engines with the horsepower range availability that meets the needs of MQ Power’s generators.”

“MQ Power has an excellent reputation in the power generation market and always provides their customers with highly developed generators,” said Vincenzo Perrone, general manager of Iveco Motors of North America. “We are happy that MQ Power chose Iveco Motors’ engines for their generators, knowing their customers will also benefit from our advanced technology.”

“We are very pleased with the outcome of Iveco Motors NEF and CURSOR engines and have already placed an order for the VECTOR engine to power our larger generators,” stated Rose.
