Time for innovation
“The engine of innovation at DEUTZ never stands still. As a trailblazer of off-highway and marine drive systems for a zero-carbon future, we are demonstrating our pioneering spirit as we forge ahead with the further development of our innovative products while working to ensure that they are compatible with different technologies.”
Dr. Markus Müller,
Senior Vice President of Product Development & Technical Customer Support
Tackling global challenges by ensuring compatibility with different technologies
Our customers want products that are always reliable and powerful, comply with statutory emissions standards and noise limits, and yet are still affordable. And our challenge is to ensure these requirements are met. We have to keep moving if we are to strike the right balance between technical, environmental, and financial objectives. Because different solutions are required for different applications, we develop our portfolio in such a way that our products are compatible with different technologies. This means that we will focus on offering a combination of diesel, gas, hydrogen, petroleum, hybrid, and electric drives.
DEUTZ is prepared for the global
challenges of tomorrow
To some extent, the impetus for engine development comes from emissions directives and the introduction of new exhaust emissions standards that impose limits on harmful emissions, such as soot particles and nitrogen oxides. Because of this, our development activities are focused on bringing our engines into line with current and future emissions standards, such as EU Stage V and China IV, and at the same time developing innovative drive systems that are compatible with a variety of technologies. This enables us to make a lasting contribution to the fight against climate change.

DEUTZ presents innovative drive systems that are compatible with different technologies at bauma 2019
Our industry faces huge challenges. How can future drive systems be both sustainable and powerful and still meet ever tighter regulatory requirements? Our answer is REVOLUTIONIZING POWER. This was the slogan with which we exhibited a broad portfolio of innovative drive systems for the off-highway and marine sectors ranging from diesel and gas to hydrogen, hybrid, and electric solutions for a zero-carbon future. As well as the countless new engine models on display, delegates were able to see our successful E-DEUTZ customer applications in action outside in the grounds of the world’s largest trade fair for construction equipment.
DEUTZ’s EU Stage V diesel engines are a standalone power source with compact dimensions. The robust and sophisticated exhaust aftertreatment minimizes emissions, thereby helping to protect the environment.
DEUTZ’s gas engines are robust industrial drive systems that offer an environmentally friendly alternative without the need for extensive exhaust aftertreatment. They are particularly suitable for forklift trucks and compact construction equipment.
DEUTZ’s hydrogen internal combustion engine enables carbon emissions to be eliminated and represents a cost-efficient alternative to electric drives, fuel-cell drives and other emission-free technology.
In the future, it will be possible to operate DEUTZ’s internal combustion engines on a carbon-neutral basis by using synthetic fuels. DEUTZ has already approved its entire TCD engine range up to EU Stage IV for operation with these types of alternative fuel.
The E-DEUTZ product range includes hybrid and all-electric drive systems for off-highway applications that reduce both CO2 emissions and operating costs.
Customer benefits at a glance – innovative customized products from DEUTZ
DEUTZ Advanced Configurator: customized drive solutions
One of the highlights of our appearance at the bauma trade fair was a 3D presentation of our modular product system, in which various engines were configured in real time and then depicted as a 360-degree virtual model. We use the product modules to design drive systems for our customers that are tailored to their requirements regarding application segment, power output, emissions characteristics, and technical basis – whether diesel, gas, hybrid, or electric – and are suited to the operating conditions. This allows our customers to respond quickly and flexibly to technological advances and changing market requirements. At the same time, we can help to protect the environment.
DEUTZ Advanced Repair: digitalizing the service business
‘We care. We support. We deliver.’ was the slogan with which we presented our comprehensive range of services at bauma. Our DEUTZ Advanced Repair service concept helps our customers to react much more quickly, reduce downtime, and lower their costs. For example, mechanics can perform remote engine diagnostics via a tablet. And it takes just a few more taps on the screen to connect to a local service partner via a centralized online platform or to order spare parts at any time of day or night. As well as end customers, this ultimately benefits all parties in the value chain, whether the equipment manufacturer, the service partner, the workshop, or the fleet operator.
DEUTZ is ready for China,
the world’s largest engine market
China, the world’s largest individual market for construction equipment, is growing steadily but also undergoing a fundamental shift. Emissions standards are being tightened, and the government is persistent in its efforts to push ahead with the further development of diesel engines and alternative drives, such as those powered by electricity, sustainable fuels, or hydrogen.
SANY, China’s biggest construction equipment group, relies on drive technology from DEUTZ
Our joint venture with SANY, China’s largest construction equipment group, is proof positive that we are on course to position ourselves as the ideal technology partner in the Chinese market. We hold a majority stake of 51 percent in the joint venture, which forms part of SANY’s intelligent heavy truck project. As well as various off-highway applications, we are also taking over the manufacture of heavy-truck engines for SANY. In September 2019, the foundation stone was laid for a high-performance-engine assembly plant in the Chinese city of Changsha. In the first phase, we will manufacture around 75,000 new engines for SANY for off- and on-highway applications in 2022. These engines will comply with the China IV and China 6 emissions standards respectively. There is potential for a larger production volume. To put this into context, we currently supply around 10,000 engines a year in total to China. The province of Hunan supports the setting up of the joint venture and is contributing several tens of millions of US dollars in additional funding to the project.
Strengthening expertise through strategic alliances
In addition to our joint venture with SANY, we have also entered into strategic alliances. For example, we plan to start jointly producing engines with engine manufacturer BEINEI in 2020; the DEUTZ management team is to oversee the manufacturing of 20,000 engines at a new factory in Tianjin in 2022. We also want to significantly expand our service business under an alliance with FAR EAST HORIZON, China’s largest construction equipment leasing company. Going forward, more than 80 HORIZON sites will also serve DEUTZ customers.
