PORTLAND, Ore. — Detroit Diesel has received EPA approval for its 2010 engines with selective catalytic reduction (SCR).
The DD13, DD15 and DD16 with BlueTec SCR were all recently certified by the EPA. Detroit Diesel says testing has shown fuel economy improvements of up to 5% compared to its EPA07 designs.
The company has racked up more than 28 million miles of testing, including 1.5 million miles of real-world freight hauling while validating its 2010 engines.
“We received 2010 certification on Dec. 30 and have already loaded our first batch of production engines on the line in our Redford, Michigan engine facility. The 2010 certification is a great way to start the year,” said David Hames, general manager, marketing and strategy, Daimler Trucks North America. “But, more than that, we are pleased to further improving on our advanced family of engines that is already proven to meet our customers’ need for performance, fuel economy, durability and reliability.”
Detroit Diesel says its BlueTec technology is the most extensively tested emissions technology system in company history. The BlueTec SCR system will be available in a variety of packaging configurations, including what it calls a unique one-box packaging design optimized for low back-pressure. The system also comes with a new, robust diesel particulate filter.
