Deere mpany: Power Systems will showcase a range of powertrain solutions at SIMA 2022

SARAN, France (October 6, 2022) – As agricultural producers continue to face increasing demands for improved emissions performance, fuel economy and productivity, John Deere Power Systems (JDPS) is making strategic investments in electrification, renewable fuels and other forward-looking engine and transmission technologies to help customers achieve their productivity and sustainability goals.

JDPS will preview the future of powertrain technology at SIMA 2022 from November 6-10. Attendees visiting the JDPS booth (Hall 5B, Booth A022) will learn about the company’s line of next-generation motors as well as the Kreisel Battery Pack 63 (KBP63), a modular battery solution that uses the technology of Kreisel Electric’s patented immersion cooling for exceptional reliability. , performance and safety. The booth will also showcase other John Deere primary power solutions, diesel-electric transmissions and battery advancements, as well as Connected Support – a remote monitoring and diagnostics solution for OEM equipment powered by John Deere.

Battery and diesel-electric transmission

As JDPS works toward a future with low- and near-zero carbon propulsion systems, the company is investing significant resources in advanced battery technologies for off-road vehicles. Deere & Company has acquired majority ownership of Kreisel Electric, Inc. (“Kreisel”), an Austria-based battery technology provider that develops high-durability electric battery modules and packs and a platform for charging infrastructure called CHIMERO.

Renewable fuels

John Deere is committed to providing end users with the most advanced, affordable and efficient renewable fuel solutions. With world-class engineering expertise, John Deere simplifies the integration of renewable fuels into combustion engines to deliver more value and productivity. Among the variety of renewable fuels available, John Deere considers biodiesel blends, renewable diesel, and ethanol to be the primary alternatives to diesel that can fit into heavy equipment.

JDPS has made significant progress in testing engines for compatibility with renewable diesel fuel such as hydrogenated vegetable oil (HVO), which is a biofuel obtained by hydrocracking or hydrogenating vegetable oil. Renewable diesel offers a sustainable replacement comparable to diesel fuel.

New generation engines

Designed to deliver new levels of reliability, durability, flexibility and serviceability for a wide range of heavy-duty applications, next-generation engines leverage the best John Deere technologies in new ways to meet market demands and customers. The next generation engine range includes the JD4, JD14 and JD18.

Take advantage of telematics connections

JDPS plans to extend its telematics technology offerings to OEM equipment equipped with John Deere engines through Connected Support. Connected Support helps increase efficiency, profitability and productivity in the field by providing customer support through John Deere remote monitoring and diagnostic services.

JDPS will be located in Hall 5B at stand A022. To learn more about John Deere’s powertrain offerings ahead of the show, click here.
