TATA DAEWOO Commercial Vehicle CO. LTD. and FPT Industrial sign an agreement for the supply of Euro VI Engines
Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Co. Ltd., a leading medium and heavy commercial vehicle producer in South Korea, and FPT Industrial, one of world’s main diesel engine manufacturers, signed an agreement for the supply of Euro VI compliant engines for the full product range of the South Korean Company.
Thanks to the new agreement, FPT Industrial will power the total Euro VI product offering of the South Korean company with NEF (6.7-litre) and Cursor (9, 11 and 13 litre) Series engines, equipped with the High Efficiency SCR (HI-eSCR) system.
The combination of FPT’s engines with the patented and unique HI-eSCR will enable Tata Daewoo’s commercial vehicles to comply with the extremely stringent Euro VI Nitrogen Oxide (NOx) limits by means of the selective catalytic reduction system alone, without the need for exhaust gas recirculation. Furthermore, the engines respect particulate legislative limits thanks to a passive regenerated Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) only, without the need of any active regeneration.
The engines, equipped with the latest generation heavy duty Common Rail injection system, are characterised by high power, fast load response and high power-density, ensuring at the same time low fuel consumption and long maintenance intervals, representing a reference in their respective categories.
Tata Daewoo Commercial Vehicle Co. Ltd., founded in 2002, is a commercial vehicle manufacturer headquartered in Gunsan, Jeollabuk-do, South Korea, and a wholly owned subsidiary of Tata Motors.
