Deutz to increase supply to Visa Group


Visa Group has announced a quadruple increase in its use of Deutz engines.

The engine developer is to significantly expand its supply agreement with the Italian genset manufacturer, which will see the Onis Visa, Nettuno and Technoplus brands all using significantly more Deutz engines across its genset and pump portfolio. Volumes will start to increase gradually, with a view to the supply eventually being close to four times the original volume.

The agreement encompasses the supply of type B/FM 2011 and type BFM 1013 engines with a power output range of 30kVa to 250kVA for genset applications, as well as type B/FL 2011 and air-cooled type 912/914 engines for water pumps.

Marco Barro, general manager of Visa Group, said, “These particularly robust diesel engines are ideal for use in the Middle East and Africa. The gensets can be used at any time, offering high availability and low maintenance even in extreme temperatures and under tough environmental conditions. This is reflected in the strong market demand for the products in these regions.

“This agreement will help us to strengthen the growth potential of our company,” said Georg Diderich, senior vice president for sales and service, EMEA (Europe, Middle East and Africa) at Deutz. “We are delighted that Visa Group has decided to use more Deutz engines in future and that our partnership will grow substantially as a result.”
