FPT Industrial leads the path to sustainable agriculture at World Ag Expo and presents the behind food special project.
February 2022 – FPT Industrial is presenting a new special project called ‘Behind Food’ along with its latest engines at the World Ag Expo 2022, the world’s largest agricultural exhibition, which takes place in Tulare, California, from February 8 to 10. Visitors can check the news of the Brand at booth T36 at the North Exhibits Hall.
The project ‘Behind Food’ is an initiative of FPT Industrial to promote sustainable agriculture, showing how innovative powertrain technologies are part of a chain that takes high-quality, healthy products from the field to the table. In collaboration with Eataly, the world’s largest artisanal Italian food and beverage marketplace, FPT Industrial will debut the “Behind Food” cooking show, taking viewers through a tasting journey from the Californian farms of Sohnrey Family Foods, Trattore Farms, and Hilmar Jerseys to the kitchen of Eataly’s headquarters in Turin, Italy. All farms involved in the project are customers of New Holland Agriculture, which is the other key partner in this chapter “Behind Food”.
During the press event at FPT Industrial’s booth, on February 9, at 10:30 PST, there was also a live cooking demo led by Fabio Angeli, Chef of La Scuola Eataly, Los Angeles. The presence of Eataly reinforces the partnership that started in 2019 between the two companies, built on their common vision of providing environmentally friendly products with quality and passion.
“We are glad to participate in this year’s edition of World Ag Expo to continue spreading the message of sustainable agriculture,” said Braden Cammauf, Head of FPT Industrial in North America. “Our Brand has made incredible advances in alternative fuel solutions and in powering modern, productive and reliable agriculture machines that help farmers take care of our land every day.”
In terms of products, FPT Industrial is taking six of its most recent powertrain technologies to World Ag Expo, displaying solutions for different kinds of applications focused on the North American market.
The newest engine of the Brand, the F28, is being showcased on the stand. The F28 Tier 4 Final is a new modular and multi-fuel solution specifically designed for light and compact agriculture machines. Whether fuelled by Diesel or Natural Gas, it delivers a performance of a 3.4-liter engine in a 2-liter package.
There are other three compact and flexible solutions for light operations at FPT Industrial’s booth. The F34 Tier 4 Final has a maximum power of 90 kW and torque up to 490 Nm, delivering high performance in a compact layout. Besides, it has a long-lasting DPF-free aftertreatment system and one-side serviceability that speeds up maintenance operations. The F34 Tier 4 Final Power Pack version comes with all components (e.g. air filter, cooling pack, ATS) pre-assembled in one package, providing power up to 55 kW and torque up to 320 Nm. The third highly compact solution at the show is the F36 Tier 4 Final, with the best-in-class power and torque density – up to 105 kW and 600 Nm.
For heavy-duty operations that require top performance, FPT Industrial is exhibiting the Cursor 9 Tier 4 Final Power Pack, which delivers maximum power of 308 kW and torque up to 1800 Nm. Because it is a ready-to-use power unit, it simplifies emission compliance for customers. In addition, it ensures low fuel consumption and low running costs thanks to EGR-free combustion, long service interval and for-life ATS.
Lastly, for robustness and durability even in the most severe conditions, the N67 Tier 3 IPU is the right choice. Available in both mechanical and electronic configurations, it delivers power up to 175 kW, torque up to 1020 Nm, besides high fuel efficiency.
During the AG Expo show, visitors will also find FPT Industrial at the New Holland Agriculture booth (South Exhibits, Hall 1), where the N67 NG engine is on display in a dedicated corner close to the T6 METHANE TRACTOR.
