At bauma China 2016, Asia’s largest trade fair for construction equipment, Deutz has announced the world premiere of its new TCD 9.0 diesel. This four-cylinder diesel engine with a capacity of 9.0 L is the first of a new generation of engines that Deutz is planning as part of an alliance with the Liebherr Group.
As well as the TCD 9.0, this comprises six-cylinder diesel engines. The engines made by Liebherr within this cooperation will be sold by Deutz under its own brand.
The plan is for Deutz’s Chinese joint venture to manufacture the TCD 9.0 under license to serve the local market. The engine has a power rating of 300 kW (402 hp) and produces 1700 Nm (1254 ft. lbs.) of torque.
The design that makes it applicable in a range of applications and is particularly well suited for excavators
and wheel loaders
, Deutz said.
All new engines are being developed for the EU Stage 5, US Tier 4, China 4 and EU Stage 3a emissions standards and will go into series production in 2019. The engines will follow a standardized concept with a common customer interface and a high proportion of shared parts and are to be distributed via Deutz’s global network of dealers and service outlets.
Michael Wellenzohn, member of the Board of Management of Deutz AG with responsibility for sales / service & marketing: “By adding new engines from the alliance with Liebherr, we are enhancing our product portfolio and can now cover further power output ranges and applications. Furthermore, having the TCD 9.0 made in Dalian (via its with its Chinese joint venture, Deutz (Dalian) Engine). will give us the proximity to our Chinese partners that we need. We continue to see a great deal of growth potential in this market when it comes to advanced technology.”
Emission downgrade versions will also be available, meaning a single engine platform can be used both for Stage 5 markets and for regions with more relaxed regulations, Deutz said.
