Doosan Industrial Vehicle UK launches new environmentally-friendly, cost-effective forklifts using its revolutionary new G2 engine

at the renowned Millbrook Proving Ground in Bedfordshire, the smaller engine recorded some of the best fuel consumption figures ever seen in the forklift industry. Fuel consumption was reduced by more than 30% to as little as 2.09-litres per hour in standard mode and 1.67 litres per hour when the optional speed limiter is deployed.

Phil Stones, Head of Emissions and Fuel Economy at Millbrook, explains: “Millbrook is very pleased to have assisted Doosan with this important programme. Building on Millbrook’s previous working relationship with Doosan, our extensive tests on the G2 engine in our Variable Temperature Emissions Chamber (VTEC), followed by track tests, resulted in success for the programme and the product.”

“The Doosan G2 engine represents a watershed moment in forklift diesel engine design,” concludes Tim Waples. “It is a genuinely innovative approach to the challenge of maintaining performance while meeting exacting emissions standards, and will become the benchmark engine against which all others in the market are measured.”
