Deutz premiere new TCD 9.0 engine at Bauma China 2016


Deutz launched at this week’s Bauma China show its new TCD 9.0 liter, four-cylinder diesel engine.

The engine is the first in a new generation that Deutz is planning as part of an alliance with the Liebherr Group. As well as the TCD 9.0, this comprises six-cylinder diesel engines. The engines made by Liebherr within this cooperation will be sold by Deutz under its own brand. The plan is for Deutz’s Chinese joint venture to manufacture the TCD 9.0 under licence so that it can more easily serve the local market. 

The engine has a power rating of 300kW and produces 1,700Nm of torque. It also features a highly compact design that makes it easy to install in a wide range of applications and is particularly well suited for excavators and wheel loaders. 

All new engines are being developed for the EU Stage V, US Tier 4, China IV and EU Stage IIIA emissions standards and will be ready to go into series production in 2019. They will follow a standardized concept with a common customer interface and a high proportion of shared parts and are to be distributed via Deutz’s global network of dealers and service outlets. 

“By adding new engines from the alliance with Liebherr, we are enhancing our product portfolio and can now cover further power output ranges and applications,” said Michael Wellenzohn, member of the Deutz board of management.

“Having the TCD 9.0 made in Dalian (northeast China) will give us the proximity to our Chinese partners that we need. We continue to see a great deal of growth potential in this market when it comes to advanced technology.” 

Deutz exhaust aftertreatment solutions use highly developed systems such as the diesel particulate filter (DPF), selective catalytic reduction (SCR) and diesel oxidising catalyst (DOC).

The familiar Deutz engine portfolio (TCD 2.2 to TCD 16.0) and the new Liebherr engines all meet the EU’s most stringent emissions standard, Stage V (applies from 2019). Emission downgrade versions will also be available, meaning a single engine platform can be used both for Stage V markets and for regions with more relaxed regulations.
