FPT Industrial unveiled its ideas for marine engines, both recreational and commercial Stage V, pushes on design and joins Electric Days. To put it another way, there is something here for everybody.
FPT Stage V, design and Electric Days, starting from the nel marine engines line up
According to FPT Industrial “The core of the launch was the unveiling of the new C90 170 Stage V dedicated to heavy-duty missions and featuring an optimized fuel map that avoids the need for an urea-based after treatment system. The other highlight was the presentation of the keel cooling system, a solution for effectively cooling engines operating in sandy, muddy and shallow water, without the risk of obstructing the seawater filters and damaging the seawater pumps.
With the latest C90 170 Stage V addition, FPT Industrial further expands its global marine offering, including 8 models and power outputs from 85 hp up to 1000 hp, following the overhaul of the marine range, started and implemented since 2020. This power unit is custom-made for the heaviest-duty commercial missions and offers 170 hp at 2000 rpm and 1105 Nm torque at 1000 rpm engine. Its applications include passenger transport, cargo or floating equipment vessels, pusher tugs, trawl fishing boats and dredgers, mainly operating in rivers and lakes as well as in cities and restricted areas in Europe. In order to comply with the stringent requirements of the Stage V standard, FPT Industrial took a different route. Instead of relying on urea-based after treatment system, the brand choose to focus on fuel map optimization. The result is a 30% reduction of HC, NOx and PM emission versus the previous version and, moreover, a significant Total Cost of Ownership containment. The overall high level of sustainability of the new power unit is confirmed also by the adoption of a specific oil retention system that prevents the combustion of valve lubrication oil, with a substantial reduction of visible smoke. The C90 170 Stage V holds type approvals from the main international regulation authorities and enlarges FPT Industrial’s Stage V line-up, now including a range of displacements from 4 to 9 litres and offering customers one of the widest choiches on the market.
Cursor X and Good Design Award
In terms of design, the futuristic Cursor X “was one of the recipients of the prestigious 2020 Good Design Award. Founded in Chicago in 1950 by Eero Saarinen and Charles and Ray Eames, and currently managed by The Chicago Athenaeum: Museum of Architecture and Design and The European Centre for Architecture Art Design and Urban Studies, Good Design remains the oldest and the world’s most recognized program for design excellence worldwide.
FPT Industrial was a partner of the Electric Days, the first digital event completely dedicated to the electrification of vehicles. Organised by Motorsport Network in collaboration with the magazines Wired, GQ, Vanity Fair, the event was a five-day event of debates, virtual meetings, surveys and buying guides to understand technology and consciously choose the car of today and tomorrow.
