LAKE FOREST, Ill. — International Truck and Engine is calling on Tenneco to provide exhaust aftertreatment systems for its medium-duty truck lineup.
The deal begins in 2007 with medium-duty diesel-powered trucks with International engines, the company has announced. It’s Tenneco’s first North American contract for diesel emission control technologies for medium-duty commercial trucks.
“We are pleased to win such a significant contract with International Truck and Engine Corporation. As a leading global supplier of diesel aftertreatment technologies, we’ve taken our best-in-class exhaust technology for light diesel vehicles and applied that same expertise to develop effective solutions for International,” said Mark P. Frissora, chairman, CEO and president of Tenneco. “We are well-positioned to grow in the commercial vehicle market with our global engineering capabilities and advanced diesel technologies that help customers meet increasingly stringent emissions standards.”
Tenneco will be providing a complete exhaust aftertreatment system including the diesel particulate filter (DPF) and the diesel oxidation catalyst. Other components include air gap pipes and a new hanging system.
The DPF boasts a modular design that allows for easy cleaning and service every 150,000 miles, the company says. International’s service technicians will be able to remove the DPF from the truck in less than 10 minutes thanks to a simple one-bolt removal system.
“We have been actively involved in the diesel particulate filter business since the 1980s in Europe and went into high volume serial production on light vehicles in 2000,” said Frissora. “This win with International continues the growth of Tenneco’s diesel particulate filter business, expected to be over 1.5 million units annually in 2007.”
