FPT AND ZHONGTONG TO DEVELOP FIRST EURO VI STEP A BUS
FPT Industrial has established a partnership with Zhongtong Bus Holding Co. Ltd. in order to develop its first Euro VI intercity bus for the Hong Kong market. The buses will have FPT Industrial’s Cursor 9 engines, which are equipped with the HI-eSCR technology, a breakthrough after-treatment system.
The six-cylinder in-line Cursor 9 engine used by Zhongtong Bus Holding Co. Ltd. has a power rating of 265 kW and is Euro VI Step A/C compliant. It is best-in-class for power density allowing an impressive 11 liter performance in a 9 liter package. Thanks to DPF with passive regeneration (NO fuel post-injection), FPT Industrial's Cursor 9 is best-in-class also for fuel consumption reduction. Furthermore, a longer oil drain and DPF service intervals reduce the downtime of the vehicle.
The absence of the EGR and the use of a robust turbocharger are a competitive benefit for the engine life and ensure an optimization of packaging and installation. The Cursor 9 Euro VI version is equipped with HI-eSCR, the exclusive and patented FPT Industrial after-treatment technology.
FPT Industrial's innovative High Efficiency SCR (HI-eSCR) system has a NOx conversion efficiency higher than 95%. HI-eSCR represents a breakthrough in Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) was pioneered by FPT Industrial at its Research & Development Centre in Arbon, Switzerland. Since 2005 over 700,000 units have been produced and have been used in various applications, like on- and off-road vehicles. Thus, FPT Industrial's technology is also ready to be GBVI emission level compliant.
