US STANADYNE AND CHINESE BYC ANNOUNCE GLOBAL DIESEL COMMON RAIL ALLIANCE
Stanadyne, global fuel injection systems developer based in Windsor, Conn., and BYC (ASIMCO Tianwei) a fuel injection systems developer based in Beijing, China, announced the formation of a strategic alliance to bring diesel common rail (DCR) fuel systems to the global market.
Both companies, which specialize in elements of DCR fuel systems, will blend their respective expertise to create complete, co-branded fuel systems for engine makers seeking to utilize the newest diesel technology. Stanadyne will lead the pump design and advanced manufacturing practices for the alliance, while BYC will focus on injector design, electronic control units and systems integration, the companies said.
The Stanadyne-BYC alliance will offer a systems portfolio for a range of diesel engines up to 600 kW. The alliance aims to provide DCR systems that are made specifically customer needs. “Our alliance will specialize in working directly with engine makers to customize systems for their specific engine platforms,” said Daniel Liu, general manager of BYC. “The design of the Stanadyne-BYC system features a flexible open architecture, which allows us to easily adapt and integrate a system to meet customer needs.”
Many of the world’s diesel engine manufacturers use DCR technology to meet emission regulations in their markets. With upcoming regulatory changes in China, demand is growing for China-domestic suppliers that can deliver DCR systems and integration services to meet new emission standards, the companies said.
While both Stanadyne and BYC have a strong design and manufacturing footprint in China, this agreement will bring DCR systems to the global market.
