Good news came to Yuchai hot on the heels of New Year's Day that it got an order for 587 national V gas engines and 48 Euro VI diesel engines in the just-completed bus engine tender of Beijing Public Transport Group (BPTG) in 2014. This is the first Euro VI engine order got by Yuchai as well as China's first Euro VI engine order to be launched on the market, marking the marketization of China-made Euro VI engines.
The order involves 635 Yuchai engines, including 237 units of YC6L260N-50, 108 units of YC6MK320N-50, 242 units of YC6K1336N-50 and 48 units of YC6L310-60 Euro VI diesel engine. All of them will be installed on Foton buses and be operated by BPTG's subsidiary--Bafangda.
Yuchai's strategic heavy-duty engines--YC6L, YC6MK and YC6K gas engines were all involved in the successful bid, and the Euro VI diesel engines involved are the first batch of its kind in the country. Yuchai was the only Chinese brand among the manufacturers which won the bids for Euro IV engines. The launch of Euro VI engines up to the highest international emission standards means that Yuchai has been up to advanced international standards in terms of emission control and kept leading the emission upgrading of the domestic engine industry. Additionally, the first-time installation of the YC6K13N national V gas engine on buses and its entry into China's most important bus market--Beijing have further enriched the spectrum of heavy-duty engines in the bus market and boosted the influence of 6K engines in the bus market.
The tender is the second time that BPTG has purchased gas engines in large volume after the purchase in late 2012 and the first time that BPTG has chosen Euro VI diesel engines. Yuchai got orders for nearly 1,700 units in the two tenders, accounting for 35 percent of all gas engines involved ahead of other engine manufacturers getting gas engine orders from Bafangda. For a long time, imported engines have accounted for a large share of engines used by BPTG. As a pacesetter in the domestic engine industry and a representative of domestic engine manufacturers, Yuchai has achieved brilliant results in BPTG's previous tenders, which further proves its superiorities in technology and emission.
Engine emission upgrading involves core engine technologies such as electronic control, combustion and performance and emission control. After successfully developing China's first Euro VI diesel engine prototype in 2011, Yuchai overcame the technical problems of Euro VI engines such as fuel consumption and durability so as to further improve the technical level of China's engine industry and take a further step towards a world top diesel engine R & D and manufacturing enterprise. With the rise in China's requirements for motor vehicle emission, these technologies will be widely used in fields such as city bus and intercity bus to reduce air pollution and benefit ordinary people.
