With over 25 years of experience, more than 30,000 CNG engines sold and the widest range on the market, FPT Industrial is a market leader and innovator in Natural Gas engines. Its products powered by natural gas, in its compressed (CNG), liquefied (LNG) or renewable form (bio-methane) and adaptable for LPG, are used for commercial vehicles, buses, and specialty vehicles. FPT Industrial has also been developing solutions for the off-road sector since 2011. Furthermore, FPT Industrial has adopted stoichiometric technology since 1995, ensuring clean combustion and low emissions thanks to its proprietary control strategy and electronic Multi Point Injection system.

Leveraging on this longstanding experience, FPT Industrial's NEF 6 NG had its world premiere at EIMA International 2016 (BolognaFiere, November 9-13, Hall 15 - First floor - Stand B11), its latest range-made solution for agricultural applications based on natural gas power.

With a robust diesel-based design for maximum reliability and high performance, and taking advantage of the stoichiometric technology and the electronic Multi Point Injection system, NEF 6 NG has optimized fuel consumption thanks to stable combustion ensured by its patented air-gas mixer and the specific design of pistons and spark-plugs. Its high resistance structural block and the oil sump are specifically designed for installation on tractors, while the ultra-compact and maintenance-free three-way catalyst ATS has no need for DPF or SCR.

Pure environmental sustainability, Natural Gas ensures lower pollutants up to zero CO2 emissions when using bio-methane, leading to less noise: indirect injection in the intake manifold and reduced compression ratio permit NEF 6 NG to produce lower noise and vibrations compared to diesel engines (up to 5 dB less).
