- New DEUTZ in-line engines with a capacity range from 9 to 18 litres
- Extended power output range for heavy-duty construction equipment

DEUTZ, together with its African distribution partner DEUTZ DIESELPOWER (DDP), will be showcasing its latest engines from 13 to 16 March at bauma CONEXPO Africa 2018. At the event in Johannesburg, South Africa, DEUTZ will be putting the focus on its new heavy-duty engines with a capacity range from 9 to 18 litres.
This international trade fair for construction equipment, building material handling equipment, mining equipment and construction site vehicles and machinery is an offshoot of the established industry trade fairs bauma and CONEXPO and is organised by Messe München and the Association of Equipment Manufacturers. When it was last held in 2015, it attracted more than 14,000 visitors as well as 616 exhibitors from 42 countries.
The highlight at the DEUTZ stand will be the new TCD 9.0 / 12.0 / 13.5 / 18.0 in-line engines, which from 2019 will significantly extend the Company’s portfolio in the higher output range. The TCD 9.0 four-cylinder engine generates 300 kW and 1,700 Nm of torque and has already received two accolades. As well as winning the DIESEL OF THE YEAR award from DIESEL trade magazine, it was named one of OEM Off-Highway’s ‘Top Ten New Products of 2017’. 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 TCD 13.5 will be on display at the exhibition in Johannesburg. The TCD 9.0 / 12.0 / 13.5 models are part of a family of engines that have a standardised customer interface and identical front and rear sides, considerably simplifying the tasks of integrating and maintaining the engines. The proportion of common parts used across the platform is approximately 65 percent, which reduces servicing complexity and optimises inventories. The 620 kW six-cylinder TCD 18.0 in-line engine, which generates 3,600 Nm of torque, will occupy the upper end of the power output range for DEUTZ. All new engines are specifically designed for heavy-duty construction equipment with high output and torque requirements. The engines are being developed for the EU Stage V, US Tier 4, China IV and EU Stage IIIA emissions standards and thus meet the future statutory requirements regarding exhaust emissions.
DEUTZ DIESELPOWER is the biggest distributor for sales, support and service for all DEUTZ engines in South Africa and other English-speaking African countries.
