For the First Time in Europe FPT Industrial Showcases its New Natural Gas Engine for Off-Road Applications at FPT Tech Day 2017
Performance, at the same time, is identical to that of an equivalent Diesel engine, particularly in terms of maximum power and torque. Its durability matches that of a standard power unit, and is complimented by running cost savings of up to 30%. The NEF Natural Gas prototype is an in-line 6 cylinder engine, developing 180 hp peak power and 740 Nm maximum torque. It uses specifically developed FPT Industrial technology that minimizes fuel consumption to provide day-long autonomy.
FPT Industrial’s Natural Gas engines can run on compressed (CNG), liquefied (LNG) or renewable forms of natural gas, that can lead to near zero CO2 emissions. Biomethane can be produced from both farm-grown energy crops and from waste products and crop residues. These engines are used for commercial vehicles and buses. Natural Gas engines are available on the F1C, NEF 6 and Cursor 9 engines ranges. These engine families offer solutions ranging from 136 to 400 hp, making FPT Industrial the brand with the widest Natural Gas engine range on the market. All these products enable ultra-low emissions, low noise and high efficiency, and are driven by the principles of environmental sustainability, reduced Total Cost of Ownership (TCO), and diesel-like performance, elements that facilitate interchangeability with diesel applications.
