FPT Industrial presented its Tier 4 Final technologies in the Off Road segment at the “Government Fleet Expo & Conference”, which took place in San Antonio, Texas, June 12-15. The annual event was the perfect occasion for public sector fleet management professionals to gather and discuss the latest On- and Off-Road equipment, technologies and challenges. Matthew Szuck, Technical Project Manager of FPT North America, spoke to attendees about Tier 4 Final technologies in the Off Road industry and communicated the Company’s success in this segment.
Matthew Szuck also shared FPT’s global engine portfolio, which ranges from 2.2 Lt to 20 Lt, offering both diesel and natural gas solutions. FPT engines are available for Off Road, On Road, Marine, and Power Generation applications in select markets around the world.
“Interacting directly with conference participants, answering questions about FPT’s latest technology and discussing changes within the industry was very exciting. I enjoyed speaking at GFX and contributing to its’ unique educational atmosphere,” said Matthew Szuck.
Matthew explained FPT’s Tier 4 Final solution, HI-eSCR, the SCR only technology for Off Road diesel. HI-eSCR provides the most cost efficient powertrain solution for Tier 4 Final/Stage IV, and ensures minimal impact on vehicle architecture, resulting in lowest possible increase in cost. This breakthrough technology not only allows FPT engines to meet the latest emissions standards, but also guarantee a very high NOx conversion efficiency (over 95% versus 80-85% of top competitors), without resorting to externally cooled EGR and DPF.
Matthew shared, “GFX provided a great platform to discuss Tier 4 Final technology and the advantages of a FPT powertrain with an audience of government fleet directors who face decisions regarding maintenance and the purchase of Off Road equipment every day. The panel allowed us to experience open dialogue about new components added to meet emissions, as well as best practices for usage, and changes from past generations of equipment.”
