FPT is expanding its Cursor Natural Gas (NG) engines family, with a new 13 liters Euro VI Step C-compliant running on compressed/liquefied natural gas or bio-methane.
In addittion to current 7,8 liters C8 and 8,7 liters C9 for regional-inter regional distribution FPT is now introducing a new NG 13 liters delivering max power of 338 kW /460 Hp and max torque of 2000 Nm for long haul trucks
New NG C13 is the best alternative with low climate impact for long haul operations since it has been developed to meet high demands on performance and low operating costs without compromises durability.
Natural gas is the most eco-friendly fuel for internal combustion engines, capable of bringing significant environmental advantages:
• it improves local air quality nearly eliminating air pollutants,
• it mitigates global warming by significantly reducing CO2 emissions
• and it significantly lowers engine noise.
Since 1995 stoichiometric combustion has been the companies chosen technology, proven to be the only viable and cost-efficient solution available today to meet Euro VI Step C emission limits.
As matter of fact stoichiometric combustion allows the C13 NG to comply with Euro VI Step C standards with a simple and easy-to-install 3 way catalyst without EGR. New engine’s CO2 emission level is significantly lower compared to Diesel, and can reach near zero by using biomethane. Further CNG engines decrease noise pollution by having a smoother and more silent engine combustion cycle (Otto cycle) compared to Diesel engines.
Furthremore the EGR free combustion as well as the multipoint fuel injectors and fuel rails grants class leading fuel consumption.
The new engine achives high reliability standards both on mechanical and thermal stress thank to Ni-Resist cast-iron exhaust manifold, water cooled wastegate turbocharger and Compacted Graphite Iron (CGI) cylinder head.
In addition to this, specific pistons rings and aluminium piston machining ensures 90’000 km oil service interval offering the longest service interval on the 100% NG engines market.
