SINGAPORE, May 11, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or "the Company"), a leading automotive manufacturer and distributor of engines for on- and off-road applications in China through its main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), announced today that GYMCL's YCA05175-S500 engine has passed the off-road European Stage V emission test in Europe.
With the completion of the final NCD (NOX control diagnostic system) & PCD (particulate control diagnostic system) tests, TÜV Rheinland, the EU certification body, announced that Yuchai's YCA05175-S500 engine has passed the off-road European Stage V E-Mark bench certification. Yuchai's YCA05175-S500 engine is based upon common rail fuel injection technologies, featuring advanced Diesel Oxidation Catalyst (DOC) aftertreatment, a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF), and a highly efficient active Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) emissions control technology system to control the NOx and PM content in exhaust emissions which are believed to be superior to comparable products currently in the marketplace.
This certification allows this Yuchai engine to be marketed in the European Union for off-road applications such as construction machinery, generators, and others.
Mr. Weng Ming Hoh, President of China Yuchai, commented, "We are very excited about this new milestone as we have our first engine certified for the European Stage V emission standards, paving the way for us to enter one of world's largest off-road engine markets."
