Deutz and Liebherr announce engine alliance

21 October 2016

DEUTZ AG and Liebherr Machines Bulle S.A. have agreed on the key aspects of a strategic alliance between the two companies. Under the planned agreement, DEUTZ would be granted worldwide sales and service rights for Liebherr-produced diesel engines in the 200 kW to 700 kW power category for a variety of off-highway applications.

The engines are being developed for the EU Stage V, US Tier 4, China IV and EU Stage IIIA emission standards. The Liebherr engines will be available to DEUTZ for series delivery from 2019—coinciding with the first year of the EU Stage V emission regulations.

DEUTZ plans to sell the Liebherr-made engines under its own brand, including via its network of dealers. It is also planned for DEUTZ to receive exclusive rights for the production of a Liebherr 9 liter engine in China. Furthermore, the agreement calls for an expansion in the use of DEUTZ engines in Liebherr’s machines up to 150 kW.

In a separate announcement, Liebherr said it had developed a line of G-Drive diesel engines in cooperation with Kohler, for use in the KD Series and the SDMO industrial generators by Kohler. There are six engines within the new line, which deliver between 709 kWm and 3608 kWm standby power at 50Hz, and between 891 kWm and 4250 kWm standby power at 60Hz.
