Volvo Engines Exceed Requirements For Emissions Reductions With New Retrofit System For Construction Equipment

The Volvo Construction Equipment North America homepage reports that Volvo has entered into a strategic partnership with HUSS, LLC, a leading specialist in diesel particle filtration and systems for exhaust aftertreatment, to provide retrofit systems for Volvo construction equipment.

According to Volvo, this retrofitting will significantly reduce exhaust emissions…and make the air we breathe cleaner.

HUSS is a worldwide recognized specialist in exhaust aftertreatment for diesel engines and, with more than 20 years of experience in the manufacturing and servicing of diesel particulate filtration systems.

The partnership is based on an agreement between Volvo headquarters in Sweden and HUSS headquarters in Switzerland which will make the HUSS systems also available for Volvo Trucks, Mack Trucks, Volvo Penta, and Volvo Bus engine retrofit applications on a global basis.

The HUSS system is verified to meet California’s CARB Level 3 requirements (minimum 85% particulate collection), and Volvo equipment owners using the system will be able to meet the “In-Use Off-Road Diesel Vehicle Regulation”, New York Local Law 77 and future pending legislation.

The HUSS retrofit system for Volvo equipment is capable of collecting up to 99% of diesel particulate matter (PM) emissions, substantially exceeding the CARB requirements. Volvo CE will begin its engine retrofit program immediately, utilizing the HUSS MK exhaust aftertreatment system.
