Volvo Trucks North America now offers the Volvo D12 series engines as a North American remanufactured product. Remanufacturing the Volvo D12 in this market offers customers increased availability, faster delivery times and a significantly lower cost, the company said. The Volvo Reman Basic Engine delivers the reliability, durability and performance of all Volvo engines, backed with a two-year/unlimited mileage warranty.
The Volvo Reman D12s are remanufactured at the Middletown Remanufacturing Center (MRC) in Middletown, Pa. MRC has provided North American customers with superior remanufactured parts for more than 30 years. Customers can order Volvo Reman D12s through their Volvo Truck dealer. Each engine is delivered as a “basic engine” (also known as a “long block”), which allows customers to re-use external engine components such as alternators from their original D12. Previously, remanufactured D12s for North America were shipped from Europe as complete engines.
Each Volvo Reman Basic Engine includes a remanufactured cylinder block, cylinder head, accessory drive, connecting rods and oil pump. The engine also includes new piston rings, cylinder liners, bearings, bushings, gaskets and seals.
“The Volvo D12 series enjoys tremendous success with customers who value its performance, reliability and fuel economy,” said Darin Redmon, Volvo Trucks engine marketing manager – parts marketing. “Remanufacturing the D12 gives customers a cost-effective option for extending the operating life of their Volvo VN or Volvo VHD, with new engine performance.”
Remanufactured Volvo D12 engines are completely disassembled and cleaned. Each component receives a rigorous in-process inspection, measured against Volvo’s original equipment and Volvo reman specifications, the company said. All critical components and “high wear” items are replaced with new components. Machining of remanufactured components includes stringent quality control processes, using precision CNC machining centers, to ensure performance and reliability standards are met.
