More than 70% of AGCO products run with an AGCO Power engine. AGCO Power has been pioneering the development of emission reduction technologies and was first to launch SCR technology in agricultural machinery back in 2008. Today, its engines meet and exceed the latest emission regulations in the EU and the U.S. complying with the Tier 4 emissions standards. What’s more, AGCO Power engines are ready for stage V. Dr. Helmut Endres, Senior Vice President, Engineering, Worldwide said, “Within the EU, new emission regulations will be phased in gradually in 2019 and 2020. AGCO Power started its development for the stage V a number of years ago in order to be ready for the change. High-quality engines have already been tested in cooperation with our customers in the engine laboratory and in different applications.”
AGCO Power started manufacturing engines in Linnavuori 75 years ago. Later the factory became an important part of Valtra which was then acquired by AGCO in 2004. Ever since then AGCO has continuously invested in new product development, innovative engine technologies and increasing production capacities. Today, AGCO Power manufactures 3, 4, 6 and 7-cylinder diesel engines in four plants around the world, namely, in Linnavuori (Finland), Changzhou (China), Mogi das Cruzes (Brazil) and General Rodriguez (Argentina). Production volumes have multiplied over the past decades and reached more than 100,000 engines annually.
AGCO Power’s innovations have resulted in significant improvements in the combustion process and thus offer customers excellent fuel economy. Juha Tervala, AGCO Power’s Vice President and Managing Director, said, “As a pioneer in engine technology, AGCO Power will continue to invest in research and development to design reliable and durable engines for demanding off-road machinery applications. Among others, we are actively exploring renewable fuel alternatives and electric solutions. We are committed to develop the best engines that allow our customers to bring their input costs down.”
