Deutz TCD 9.0 named as Diesel of the Year

Deutz‘DIESEL’ trade magazine has awarded the new Deutz TCD 9.0 engine as ‘Diesel of the Year’

This nine-litre cubic capacity four-cylinder engine generates 300kW and has been designed for heavy-duty construction equipment and agricultural machinery.

The ‘Diesel of the Year’ is awarded each year to the most innovative engine. The award ceremony will take place at Intermat 2018, to be held in Paris from 23-28 April 2018. Deutz had previously received this award in 2010 for its compact TCD 2.9.

‘DIESEL’ is one of the leading European trade magazines for this sector and has been reporting for 22 years on the development and manufacture of diesel engines and their applications. This TCD 9.0 was also included by the trade magazine ‘OEM Off-Highway’ in its ‘Top Ten New Products of 2017.’

The new Deutz TCD 9.0 four-cylinder in-line engine, generating 300 kW and 1,700 Nm of torque, aims to form part of a new family of engines. Together with the TCD 12.0 and the TCD 13.5 six-cylinder in-line engines, it further extends the upper end of the Deutz power range.

The proportion of common parts is approximately 65 per cent which reduces servicing complexity and optimises inventory holdings. In future, the 620 kW TCD 18.0 six-cylinder in-line engine, which generates 3,600 Nm of torque, is set to occupy the upper end of the Deutz power range. Series production of all four engines will be launched in 2019 in time for EU Stage V.

The new engines are equipped with technologies including crossflow cylinder heads, a downspeeding function for reducing fuel consumption and working noise levels plus a common rail system operating at an injection pressure of 2,200 bar. “Up to 100 per cent power take-off is possible both at the belt and the flywheel side,” said the company.

In the upper power output range, Deutz’s new in-line diesel engines present solution for heavy-duty applications from both a technical and commercial perspective. In the lower power output range, Deutz has announced to provide electric drive systems in future under its E- Deutz strategy.

“Customers will be able to choose whatever is the optimum combination of conventional and electric drive components for their particular application. By significantly improving emissions and efficiency, Deutz is aiming to be the market leader for innovative drive systems in the off-highway sector,” said the company.
