Hatz impressed the expert jury in the first category with the liquid-cooled three-cylinder diesel engine 3H50T. With a displacement of only 1.5 litres and up to 130 Newton meters, it is one of the highest-torque power sources of its kind. The version up to 19 kilowatts or 25 horsepowers is particularly suitable as an alternative to engines that require considerably more power to achieve the same torque. In parallel, it meets the requirements of the world’s strictest exhaust emission limits in this class in a compact way.
In the New Power Technology category, which was announced for the first time, Hatz won with its systems competence. The manufacturer entered its battery loader and power generator Hatz fiPMG into the race. The abbreviation stands for flywheel-integrated Permanent Magnet Generator. In this case, the generator is integrated into the engine. Compared to a conventional, mounted design, the generator alone requires 90 percent less space and is 85 percent lighter. The fiPMG ensures the operation of critical applications in hybrid systems, as a power outage backup or by providing a continuous power supply.
In September 2019, Hatz has already succeeded in winning a Diesel Progress Summit Award. In the first edition of the international award, the trophy for the Achievement of the Year went to the engine manufacturer. The virtual 2020 edition was also targeted at experts from machine and vehicle manufacturers, equipment owners, engine manufacturers and dealers as well as component and powertrain suppliers.
