Agritechnica: MAN Engines Presenting Global Innovations for Agricultural Machinery and Cogeneration
Newly developed 9 L class diesel engine for tractors and harvesters; new gas engine based on E32 bridges performance gap in cogeneration engines
At Agritechnica 2017 – the largest agricultural equipment trade fair in the world hosted in Hanover, Germany – MAN Engines will be presenting a diesel engine with nine-litre displacement to the international public for the first time. From the outset, the straight-six engine was designed and constructed as a completely new conception, especially for off-road uses. This allows the latest unit in MAN Engines’ portfolio to close a gap in performance between the existing D08 and D26 engine series. Conventional applications for the 9 L unit are agricultural, such as in tractors or harvesters.
For the first time, MAN Engines is also exhibiting an E32 series-based gas engine with 450 kWmech. The twelve-cylinder gas engine achieves this performance level in 50 Hz operation at 1,500 rpm, as well as in the 60 Hz variant at 1,800 rpm. The E3262 LE2x2 is designed for operation with biogas or special gases. The possible applications also include the very wide field of cogeneration for the industrial, commercial, municipal and leisure sectors. This also sees MAN Engines bridge a gap in the existing range of gas engines. At the same time, customers will receive a modern unit with improved efficiency levels.
Both new products can be viewed at Agritechnica between 12 and 18 November at the exhibition centre in Hanover at the MAN Truck & Bus booth (C45 in Hall 16).
