Liebherr and Guangxi Yuchai Marine and Genset Power are celebrating a decade of partnership.
Yuchai is a manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- and off-road applications in China, while Liebherr has established itself as a provider of advanced injection solutions for high-performance engines.
The collaboration extends across the high-performance off-highway and large engine sectors as well as alternative powertrain solutions with significant joint developments in the field of propulsion technology.
In August 2013, both companies initiated their first joint project, the development of the six-cylinder in-line diesel engine used in Genset applications.
In the following years, the partnership expanded to include additional engine platforms in the high-performance sector and the diesel large engine domain.
In 2022 the first firing of the Yuchai hydrogen engine, which is equipped with a Liebherr injection solution, was initiated.
“Yuchai and Liebherr are two powerful companies that, over the past ten years, have jointly delivered powerful products to the market,” Liebherr-Components Deggendorf GmbH fuel injection technology and development managing director Richard Pirkl said.
“Together, we have mastered all previous challenges and are also facing the new demands of drive technology with the same determination.”
Yuchai general manager Ning Xingyong said there is a strong foundation of trust between the companies.
“Over the past 10 years of co-operation both teams have always had very good communication, both teams have worked together as a family to overcome many difficulties and problems, and have completed the matching and batch production of many projects very well,” he said.
“We are confident and looking forward to the future cooperation to deal with various challenges in the market.”
Following the celebration, the companies signed a new strategic co-operation framework agreement to launch the next ten years of partnership.
