Over the last six months or so, there’s been no end of news concerning Liebherr and other engine manufacturers.
First came its deal with Kohler to supply a range of diesel engines from 27 to 103 L to Kohler for use in a new line of Kohler and Kohler-SDMO generator sets. Shortly after that came the news of a diesel engine alliance between Liebherr and Deutz through which Deutz would be granted worldwide sales and service rights for Liebherr engines between 268 and 938 hp for off-highway applications.
That was followed by an agreement between John Deere Power Systems and Liebherr to jointly evaluate engine technologies, designs, and development processes that may be useful for developing and producing future power needs of each company.
And now yet another country has been heard from — literally — as FPT Industrial announced it has signed a long term partnership with Liebherr to supply its Tier 4 final /Stage 4 version of the NEF series N45 engines equipped with HI-eSCR.
The N45 is a four-cylinder inline engine with a bore x stroke of 104 x 132 mm and an overall displacement of 4.5 L rated 130 kW (174 hp) that FPT said is specifically designed for Liebherr for construction applications. FPT’s High Efficiency SCR (HI-eSCR) system is engineered to reduce emissions of NOx by more than 95% through the use of selective catalytic reduction (SCR) only, with no need for an exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) or a diesel particulate filter (DPF). For countries requiring the adoption of diesel particulate filters (DPF), one can be added to the HI-eSCR system, which makes the solution Stage 5 ready, FPT said.
FPT Industrial said it was not only chosen for its excellent products, but also for its ability to provide the Liebherr Machines Bulle with tailor-made engines.
