A Return to DEUTZ’s Roots
The new DEUTZ gas engines G2.2 and G2.9 mark a return to the company’s roots and offer customers greater flexibility.
For example, they are particularly well suited to equipment designed for use in the enclosed spaces of buildings, as liquid gas produces far fewer emissions than diesel.
These engines follow the new long-term agreement that DEUTZ signed with Kion that includes the large forklift trucks of the Linde brand in its premium platforms, which will be equipped with the newly developed DEUTZ 2.2-L engine in the diesel and LPG version.
The two gas engines will be available to the market in 2019, complying with EU Stage 5 emissions regulations by only using a three-way catalytic converter without the need for an exhaust after treatment system.
The gas variant will produce up to 42kW and is a genuine first within DEUTZ’s otherwise diesel-only product range. And because all 2.2 and 2.9 variants are based on the same engine platform, customers will benefit from extensive synergies when it comes to integration, for example with regard to connections and spare parts. This will save on costs and development work.
“By expanding our product range with the 2.2 we are re-affirming the DEUTZ promise to always provide the best possible solution for each individual customer. Our new gas engines, as well as expanding our power output range, are helping us to exploit the growing potential offered by alternative fuels,” explains Michael Wellenzohn, member of the Board of Management of DEUTZ AG with responsibility for Sales / Service & Marketing.

Gas engines are by no means uncharted territory for DEUTZ; in fact they mark a return to the company’s roots. The very first DEUTZ engine from 1867 was the atmospheric gas-powered engine. And gas was also the fuel for the world’s first four-stroke engine – the Ottomotor – developed in 1876 by the founder of DEUTZ, Nicolaus August Otto. Throughout the company’s history, numerous gas-powered engines have followed in their footsteps.
