Engine manufacturer Deutz AG showed its Tier 4 exhaust emissions standard TCD 3.6 L4 engine to the Chinese market for the first time. Described by Deutz as ultra-compact, this water-cooled four-cylinder engine covers the 55.4-97kW power output range and is claimed to generate a power output comparable with that of a 4.5litre, turbocharged Tier 3 engine.
Deutz went on to say that rigorous engine downsizing now provides its customers with additional installation space for exhaust after treatment components. The engine meets the requirements for Tier 4 <56kW as well as EU Stage III B and EPA Tier 4i >56kW when fitted with a DVERT oxidising catalytic converter, and for EU Stage IV/US Tier 4 >56kW with SCR.
DEUTZ's presence in China currently encompasses a sales and service company in Beijing plus three joint ventures in Dalian, Shandong and Weifang.
