Putzmeister, Deutz reach long-term engine supply agreement

DEUTZ, the engine manufacturer, has concluded a long-term agreement to supply the Putzmeister Group with diesel engines of between 2.2 and 12 litres; this continues years of successful collaboration between the two companies. To meet the next emissions standard, Putzmeister has opted to install DEUTZ 'Stage V ready' engines in its floor screed and concrete pumps, which are to be progressively launched in the market from 2017.

Putzmeister 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 GmbH, explains: "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, member of the DEUTZ AG board of management for Sales / Service and Marketing, adds: "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 absolutely essential for Stage V. This means that DEUTZ has years of experience and a wealth of soundly-based expertise in employing DPFs.
