FPT Industrial, the Iveco Group brand dedicated to the design, production, and sale of low-environmental impact powertrains, is exhibiting at AGRITECHNICA 2023, the world’s leading trade fair for agricultural machinery, being held in Hanover (Germany) from 12 to 18 November 2023 (Hall 15, stand J07).
At this key event, FPT Industrial is showcasing its leadership in the agricultural powertrain sector, based on a proven full-range portfolio covering all applications, a growing number of satisfied customers and a worldwide yearly production of over 100,000 agricultural engines, and confirmed year after year through ground-breaking innovations and improvements.
The study analysed the stand’s global carbon footprint by taking into consideration materials
According to the Brand’s vision, 21st century farmers are, more than ever, called to balance the demands of productivity with those of sustainability. That is why the brand is reaffirming its steady commitment to continuously improving internal combustion diesel engines, paired with the introduction of very sustainable fuels such as hydrogen and biome thane, while keeping on pioneering on new, zero-emission electric powertrains, as well as hybrid solutions.
This commitment is perfectly expressed by the showcased products visitors can admire inside the brand-new stand, designed following the results of a study conducted together with the Polytechnic University of Milan. The study analysed the stand’s global carbon footprint by taking into consideration materials, goods and people transports, energy consumption during the fair, set-up and dismantling, just to name some factors.
XC13 H2 – Hydrogen Enters the Field
The new XC13, the first multi-fuel single-base engine of FPT Industrial, will see the premiere of its hydrogen version. Designed with a common core, but optimized to run with multiple fuels, from diesel and natural gas – including biomethane – to hydrogen and renewable fuels, XC13 offers maximum component standardization and easier integration into the final product.
The concept engine XC13 H2 is an additional technology in the FPT Industrial portfolio for zero-CO2 emission solutions, offering customers the familiarity they are used to with traditional machines.
Already successfully applied in an off-road vehicle, the XC13 H2 powers the PRINOTH LEITWOLF h2MOTION, the world’s first hydrogen snow groomer. This new concept vehicle is, indeed, equipped with the new FPT Industrial XC13 Hydrogen version, a 13-liter, six-cylinder engine, relying on superior, direct fuel injection technology.
F28 Hybrid for Agricultural Applications – The Sustainable Compact Powertrain
The F28 Hybrid harnesses a diesel engine paired with an e-flywheel, combining high performance and low fuel consumption in a compact package.
The in-line four-cylinder engine delivers maximum power of 75 hp, while the electric motor adds 27 hp of continuous power and 40 hp of peak power. Its integrated layout allows for plug & play replacement of larger diesel versions. The F28 Hybrid is the best solution for effective use of agricultural e-implements, guaranteeing improved efficiency thanks to engine downsizing and optimized powertrain-implement coupling.
