Stanadyne, a U.S.-based global fuel injection systems designer and manufacturer, recently introduced its new EcoForce line of fuel-system components designed to improve fuel economy, performance, and emissions of off-highway diesel powertrains in India, China, and emerging markets. The EcoForce product line is targeted for the below 50-hp (37-kW) diesel engine market for agriculture, construction, and industrial applications. Below-50-hp engines make up more than an estimated 80% of India’s off-highway market, according to Stanadyne, making them a major contributor to particulate emissions.
“The EcoForce product line helps make engines cleaner and more efficient, reducing particulate emissions by approximately 50% and enabling improved performance for off-highway applications,” said Stanadyne CEO David Galuska.
EcoForce products are aimed to support India and China, two markets that comprise roughly 50% of all global tractor sales in 2014. These markets are expected to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 5-7%, the supplier notes.
Slated to start production in the second half of 2016, EcoForce products will be manufactured at Stanadyne facilities in India and China. The company is currently working with strategic partners in both countries to bring initial end-user products to market.
