Deutz AG and Liebherr Machines Bulle have reached a cooperation agreement which gives Deutz the global distribution and service rights for Liebherr diesel engines in various applications between 200 and 620 kW. Series production start-up is planned for 2019 in time for the introduction of the new EU Stage V emissions standard.

The four engines, all in the 9- to 18-liter cubic capacity range, will be designed to meet EU Stage V, United States Tier 4, the China IV and the EU Stage IIIA emissions standards and will satisfy the requirements imposed by future statutory emissions regulations. Deutz will market the engines under its own brand name.

The engines will be added to the existing range of Deutz TCD products. The TCD 9.0 four-cylinder engine delivers 300 kW of power and generates 1,700 Nm of torque. The TCD 12.0 and 13.5 are six-cylinder engines, producing, respectively, 400 kW of power and 2,500 Nm of torque, and 450 kW of power and 2,800 Nm of torque. The biggest in the series, the TCD 18.0, delivers 620 kW of power and generates 3,600 Nm of torque.

“We are delighted to have further expanded the business relationships between our companies,” said Gebhard Schwarz, managing director of Liebherr-Component Technologies. “Deutz, with its well-established global distribution network and extensive range of services, will be able to attract new customer groups for our collaboratively produced engines.”
