Deutz and Putzmeister strike engine supply deal
By Ian Vallely18 January 2017
Engine manufacturer Deutz has concluded a long-term agreement to supply the Putzmeister Group with diesel engines of between 2.2 and 12 litres.
To meet the next emissions standard, Putzmeister has opted to install Deutz Stage V-ready engines in its floor screed and concrete pumps.
Putzmeister is a multinational manufacturer of specialist machinery based in Aichtal near Stuttgart, Germany. It is taking this step in order to prepare its product range for the EU Stage V emissions standard which will apply from 2019.
For its floor screed pumps, Putzmeister has chosen the particularly compact Deutz TD 2.2 which will replace the currently installed Deutz D 2011 engine. Deutz engines with cubic capacities of between 2.9 and 12 litres will be used for the concrete pumps.
Matthias Ruppel, CEO of Putzmeister Concrete Pumps, said, "Deutz’s worldwide service network provides exactly the right support for our machines.
"The Deutz engine portfolio covers both the highly regulated European market and numerous other regions, some of which have widely differing legal requirements. This allows us to serve every market while working with just one engine supplier, reducing both costs and complexity."
Michael Wellenzohn of Deutz added, “This supply agreement reinforces the enduring collaboration between Deutz and Putzmeister. We are delighted to be working together to achieve the conversion to Stage V engines. Our product range is ideally prepared for this challenge.”
Deutz decided early on to opt for exhaust aftertreatment using diesel particulate filters (DPF). As a consequence, while Stage IV still applies, Deutz Stage V-ready engines already have, either as optional equipment or fitted as standard, the DPF systems which will be needed for Stage V.
