BorgWarner supplies its latest B-series generation turbochargers for the newly developed Deutz 6.1-L, six-cylinder, heavy-duty diesel engine used in the agricultural machinery segment, with start of production in January 2011. Compared with its predecessor, the new engine delivers 203 kW (272 hp) at 2100 rpm and 1170 N·m (863 lb·ft) at 1450 rpm—a 13% improvement in power output and increased torque by almost 10%. The optimized turbocharging system helps the new TCD 6.1 L6 diesel engine meet EU emissions standard IIIB and U.S. Tier 4 Interim. This latest B-series turbocharger features a BorgWarner compact brushless actuator controlling the wastegate. The turbocharger is equipped with a milled aluminum wheel and a modified turbine housing to withstand high vibrational loading. The electric wastegate actuator controlled via CAN bus is said to provide precise regulation of the boost pressure over the entire engine speed range.

New Holland is ramping up its focus on vehicles that burn alternative fuels, unveiling the prototype for a methane-powered tractor set for introduction in the 2020 time frame. The engine slashes operating costs, reduces emissions and cuts noise.
Commercial vehicles are beginning to adopt alternative energy sources, but the transition remains slow. Batteries and an array of renewable fuels are seeing more usage, but costs and infrastructure remain hindrances for these fragmented technologies.
Hoist Liftruck Manufacturing is bringing full electrification for some of the biggest forklift trucks, motivated only in part by regulatory pressures. They are also proving to be less expensive to operate versus their ICE counterparts.
Various levels of electrification, connected solutions and alternative fuels are among the technology pathways that will lead to reductions of CO2, according to AVL's Dr. Marko Dekena. He spoke with Truck & Off-Highway Engineering about a variety of topics ahead of this year's AVL International Commercial Powertrain Conference.
