MINSK, 30 November (BelTA) – Stage 5 compliant engines made by the Belarusian company MMZ will be tested in Germany, the company's press service told BelTA.
Four MTZ tractors powered by MMZ's Stage 5 engines were shipped to a certification center in Germany last week where they will be tested.
The MMZ's Stage 5 engine lineup includes four engines: D-245.43S5M, D-245.5S5M, D-245S5M и D-245.2S5M. Their output varies from 62kW to 90kW. The Belarusian company started designing Stage 5 engines in 2018. The engines are compliant with this environmental standard thanks to fuel equipment and an advanced exhaust gas purification system. MMZ opted for Czech fuel equipment, in particular, a mechanical fuel pump with an electronic regulator, and a Belgian four-stage exhaust gas purification system. After certification trials in Czechia MMZ specialists and specialists of the Belarusian tractor manufacturing company MTZ did a lot of work to adapt the engines to MTZ tractors.
MMZ's four-cylinder engines, which are compliant with the Stage 5 environmental class, went through certification trials in the Prague-based certification agency TUV SUD Czech in mid-2020. MMZ received an international certificate, which allows selling the engines and the vehicles they power in European countries.
In 2019 Europe introduced the Stage 5 environmental standard as mandatory for agriculture and forestry tractors and off-road vehicles.
