FPT Industrial, the world’s largest manufacturer of low-environmental impact industrial engines, joins CES, the world’s most innovative trade fair to showcase its revolutionary concepts for future mobility and sustainable industrial transport. The stand is organized into four Innovation Areas, each dedicated to the most advanced technological solutions for a sustainable energy transition in its business segments: on-road, off-road, marine, power generation engines, and powertrain systems.

The electric axle suitable for heavy-duty, 4×2 / 6×2 44-ton GVW (Gross Vehicle Weight) semi trucks is the star of the On-road Innovation Area. Delivering high performance (840kW) and outstanding efficiency (>92%), the e-axle for HCVs (Heavy Commercial Vehicles – Class 8 Trucks) has been developed thanks to the joint-venture between Nikola, Iveco and FPT Industrial for the version of the Nikola Tre BEV, the first units of which will be delivered in the US in 2022.

The On-Road Innovation Area will also have the e-driveline and energy storage offering on display, showing how FPT Industrial is contributing to developing the powertrain of the future. The Off-Road Innovation Area will be showcasing the F28 Natural Gas engine and its application on the first vineyard tractor to run on bio-methane. FPT Industrial and Fontanafredda, a historic winery in the Langhe Region (Piedmont, Italy) founded in 1858, teamed up to produce the “Vigna La Rosa cru” Barolo wine, which is included in the Wine Spectator’s Top 100, with this innovative CO2-neutral tractor.

The Marine Innovation Area features a totally new and extremely innovative Hybrid Electric Marine Propulsion System Concept for leisure and commercial vessels. Fruit of the collaboration between FPT Industrial and the Italian startup Sealence, the Concept incorporates the FPT Industrial N67 570 EVO biodiesel engine, which is coupled with a variablespeed permanent-magnet electric generator, used as a range extender to recharge the battery pack. The range extender and the battery work together to provide maximum energy to the electric DeepSpeed Hydrojet developed by Sealence. The result is one of the most efficient, effective, environment-friendly and quiet-running – when operating in full electric mode – marine propulsion systems.

Playing a primary role in the decarbonization process of agriculture through biomethane is the manifesto of the Power Generation Innovation Area, featuring the world’s first variablespeed, hybrid, multi-mode genset concept, developed entirely by FPT Industrial. The new Smart Hybrid Hub is based on the first F28 variable-speed, low-pressure methane engine for Power Generation, fueled by biomethane obtained by the anaerobic digestion of agricultural waste and cattle slurry. The aim is to create a sustainable, net-zero-carbon circular economy, enabling farmers to become ‘Energy Independent’ from fossil fuels and able to generate additional revenue streams deriving from biomethane surplus sales.
