The order amount is in the triple digit range. In particular, it is about the provision of one’s engines. Why did the two companies decide to work together?

The two companies have now announced this. What does that mean for Rolls-Royce in Friedrichshafen and how Stefan Rudert, Director of C&I and Agribusiness in the Rolls-Royce Power Systems division, assesses the partnership.

Rolls-Royce and German agricultural machinery manufacturer Claas have signed an agreement to monitor the supply of man engines in the coming years. The two companies therefore continue their successful partnership. According to this, Claas will buy several thousand Rolls-Royce engines every year and produce harvesters, forage harvesters and large tractors. The order amount is in the mid-three-digit range.

What is the basis for further cooperation?

The man’s engines are based on Daimler commercial vehicle engines and, according to information from Rolls-Royce, are capable of producing between 180 and 480 kilowatts. They meet the EU Stage V emission control which has been in force since 2019. “We were already able to create a basis for further cooperation in the extensive validation tests, which were carried out specifically for the Class. Thanks to early and close coordination, we have further improved the engine platforms and added a diesel particulate filter to the SCR system to comply with strict standards standards,” explains Stefan Rudert, Director of C&I and Agribusiness at Rolls-Royce Power Systems. division.

Sales are possible in North America

In addition to EU Stage V certification, the engines can optionally also be available as dual-certified systems with final Tier 4 certification for the US and Canada. “This means car manufacturers are more flexible in selling machines, as it is to customers in the secondary market. At the same time, we are working on solutions to be able to open more international markets with Claas and existing engine systems,” summarizes Rudert. About half of the agricultural machines from Claas in the grain harvesting category are equipped with individual engines.
