Proventia to develop aftertreatment systems for AGCO Stage V engines

28 March 2017

Proventia Emission Control Oy, a Finland-based environmental technology company, and AGCO International GmbH have signed a joint research and development collaboration agreement covering development of Stage V compliant exhaust aftertreatment systems for AGCO Power engines.

According to the agreement, Proventia will provide research, development and engineering of exhaust line platforms for AGCO Power’s Stage V engines. Proventia will also perform emission and durability testing for the Stage V exhaust system platforms.

EU Stage V emission standards become effective from 2019/2020. The standards include a particle number (PN) emission limit for several engine categories, which will require the use of diesel particulate filters (DPF) on all affected engines. Over 50% of current EU Stage IV/US Tier 4 engine families are certified without DPFs. Due to the PN limit forcing the use of DPF technology, the Stage V standards will effectively break the harmonization with US Tier 4 standars.

“We are very pleased that AGCO is choosing Proventia as an emission partner to meet the needs of Stage V emission requirements. This new agreement will widen our current co-operation with AGCO from the provision of exhaust and insulation system supplies to a new level of research and development,” said Petri Saari, Vice President of Sales and Marketing at Proventia. ”We have worked closely with AGCO Power for over 10 years now in the development, manufacture and supply of emission systems for manufacturers using AGCO Power engines. We are very happy to continue and extend the co-operation within the Stage V challenges.”

AGCO is a global manufacturer of agricultural equipment. AGCO products are sold through five core brands, Challenger®, Fendt®, GSI®, Massey Ferguson® and Valtra®, and are distributed through approximately 3,000 independent dealers and distributors in more than 140 countries. Founded in 1990, AGCO is headquartered in Duluth, GA, USA. In 2016, AGCO had net sales of $7.4 billion.
