With more than 20 years of experience and over 35.000 Natural Gas engines produced, FPT Industrial is a pioneer and global leader in the Natural Gas field, being also the heart behind many of the players involved in this project, that starts with a Pot-au-Pin site specialized in carrots and leeks and ends in a gas station nearby.
That’s why, close to the biomethane site, a new station has opened, which is dedicated to Natural Gas, where everyone can fuel their vehicle with Natural Gas in its compressed and liquefied form. A solution which is not just ready-to-use but which presents many other
benefits: the final consumer experiences no impact to their daily routine, since the fueling process is the same as with Diesel, and the emission levels of CO2 are greatly reduced.
FPT Industrial has also developed more compact solutions, both for industrial vehicles and for light commercial ones. As for the first category, the N60 Natural Gas engine is the most compact and efficient solution in the 6 to 18 tons truck. Characterized by a 6-liter displacement and a 6-cylinder architecture, this engine delivers high power, which can reach a peak of 204 hp@2700 rpm, and an high torque, 750 Nm @1400rpm with any load and on any route. Moreover, compared to its Diesel equivalent, it allows fuel cost savings up to 30%. In the light commercial vehicle sector, FPT Industrial offers the Natural Gas version of its bestselling F1C engine. The F1C NG is a best seller, thanks to its robustness and reliability – which are the same of a Diesel engine – while the power is up to 136hp with 350Nm of max torque.
FPT Industrial research did not stop at Industrial vehicles. In the past years, FPT Industrial became a pioneer even in the agriculture segment for equipping the first New Holland methane concept tractor with an engine specifically designed for this kind of application. FPT Industrial NEF 6-cylinder Natural Gas engine delivers the same performance as Diesel engines, in terms of power, torque, durability and maintenance intervals, therefore delivering the same in-field performance and operations to end-users. Comparing it to a Diesel engine, the NEF 6-cylinder NG engine allows a 10% reduction in CO2 emissions and a 80% reduction of polluting emissions. Plus, an optimized combustion improves engine efficiency and leads to 10-30% operating cost savings when compared to Diesel, while vibration and noises are 5dB lower.
