PowerLINE® UG15 Tier 4

WITH THE NEW POWERLINE GENERATOR SETS, TIER 4 COMPLIANCE IS SURPRISINGLY SIMPLE.

Carrier Transicold’s newest PowerLINE generator sets with ecoFORWARD™ technologies comply with EPA Tier 4 and CARB emissions requirements:

  • Industry standard, proven 2.2-liter diesel engine.
  • Ultra High efficiency permanent magnet generator reduces power required from the engine and saves fuel.
  • FuelWise™ two-speed functionality built in, for up to 34% fuel savings versus previous standard units.
  • Black box controller determines when to automatically switch speeds, while delivering requisite power and voltage for refrigeration unit operation.
  • Factory or field installable engine emissions system (EES) option for 7-year in-use CARB compliance increases compliance flexibility.
  • Simple, robust design, with familiar operations and maintenance.

Simply put, PowerLINE gen sets offer efficient, environmentally sound and compliant innovations, punctuated by an incredibly familiar design.

WITH THE NEW POWERLINE® GENERATOR SETS, TIER 4 COMPLIANCE IS SURPRISINGLY SIMPLE WHILE FUEL SAVINGS ARE A BIG BENEFIT.

Carrier’s newest PowerLINE generator sets deliver improved performance while achieving compliance with the 2013 Tier 4 emissions standard from the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA).

This upgraded line of PowerLINE generator sets incorporate ecoFORWARD™ technologies, resulting in a platform that is Carrier’s most fuel-efficient models to date, thanks to standard inclusion of the formerly optional FuelWise™ technology and use of a new ultra-high-efficiency 15 kW custom-designed permanent magnet generator. Fuel savings of up to 34% versus prior standard units provide customer with significant operational cost savings and longer hauls prior to refueling.

The enhanced PowerLINE units provide uninterrupted power to operate ISO container refrigeration systems when used over land in intermodal applications. At the heart of the new platform is the ultra-high efficiency permanent magnet generator that allows the power drawn from the engine to be reduced by 20%. Common to this new Tier4 PowerLINE platform is the familiar 2.2-liter diesel engine now rated at 18.5 kW. This engine is based on Carrier’s current engine line, with its well-accepted speed sensor and electronic governor. Providing customers with a familiar, reliable engine means that their personnel do not have to learn operate and deal with complex new engine technology in the field while reaping the operational benefits of our high efficiency compliance platform.

The PowerLINE Tier 4 platform is compliant with U.S. EPA Tier 4. It is also compliant with California Air Resources Board (CARB) standards upon purchase and for seven years thereafter without further modification. After seven years CARB requires further emissions reductions for the engine class (8-19 KW) for units operating in California. In response, Carrier developed an optional engine emissions system (EES)* for the Tier 4 PowerLINE models, designed to achieve compliance with CARB’s ultra-low diesel emissions standard known as ULETRU. Tier 4 PowerLINE units will need to be fitted with the EES option by the end of the seventh year, if they are to remain in use in California. The option would be available as either a factory or field install option

  • Proven 2.2-liter diesel 18.5 KW engine EPA Tier4 certified, with electronic governor.
  • A new ultra-high-efficiency 15 kW custom-designed permanent magnet generator (PMG) that pushes efficiency well beyond conventional generators.
  • Standard implementation of enhanced FuelWise™ functionality, a fuel-saving technology that automatically switches the generator set between two speeds via a simple black box controller.
  • An optional engine emissions system (EES) for compliance with the ultra-low emissions standard of the California Air Resources Board (CARB). Factory or field install.
  • 68, 50, 80 gallon tank option.
  • Standard four-point mounting or our exclusive QuickMount™ option.
  • Frame and sheet metal components powder-coated for durability and superior corrosion protection.
  • Carrier full-flow spin-on oil filter with internal bypass filtration is standard in all units and extends service intervals.
  • Integral fuel filter with water separator.
  • Fuel heater/Fuel warmer.
  • External In-line fuel strainer with clear bowl.
  • High-efficiency air cleaner (standard dry element, optional oil bath).
  • Self-tensioning, flexible, Poly V belt
  • Stainless steel exhaust.
  • Patented E-coat tube and fin radiator.
  • 12V DC maintenance-free battery and solid state battery charger.
  • Safety stop controls for low oil pressure, high water temperature.
  • Large oil pan capacity extends running hours between oil changes.
