BBAUMA: JDPS presents a diversified range of motorization solutions

John Deere Power Systems is showcasing its latest innovations in powertrain solutions at the Bauma show in Munich this week.

Attendees visiting the JDPS booth will be able to view John Deere’s next-generation engine lineup, the company’s renewable fuels strategy, diesel-electric drivetrain and battery advancements, and Connected Support, a remote monitoring and diagnostics for OEM equipment powered by John Deere.

“John Deere Power Systems is committed to providing future-proof powertrain solutions that will give our customers a competitive advantage in the off-road market as they navigate the industry’s changing regulatory landscape. on emissions, fuel economy and productivity,” said Pierre Guyot, senior vice president, John Deere Power Systems. “We are delighted to be at Bauma and look forward to providing insight into the future of our engine and transmission technology.

Battery and diesel-electric

John Deere sees the growing demand for batteries as a sole or hybrid propulsion system for off-road vehicles. The company is investing significant resources in advanced battery technologies for off-road vehicles as it works towards a future with low and near zero carbon solutions. To help integrate vehicle and powertrain designs around batteries, John Deere has acquired a majority stake in Kreisel Electric, an Austria-based battery technology provider that develops high-durability electric modules and batteries as well as a charging infrastructure platform called Chimero.


John Deere recently announced that it is making an immediate investment in two additional sites to augment Kreisel’s production capacity expansion, beginning with the opening of a new plant at the John Deere plant in Saran, main manufacturing site for John Deere engines in Europe. Union. In parallel with this project, John Deere will also invest in the assembly of batteries in the United States to support the growth of its customers and its products.

This significant capital investment will bring an increase of more than 2 GWh in Kreisel’s battery production capacity between the two new facilities. The strategic relationship between John Deere and Kreisel will also serve as a cornerstone for electrifying products in the John Deere portfolio and position JDPS as the go-to expert for OEMs looking to electrify their heavy equipment.

The Kreisel Battery Pack 63 (KBP63), a modular battery solution that uses Kreisel’s patented immersion cooling technology for exceptional reliability, performance and safety, is on display at the show.

Renewable fuels

With the growing interest in sustainable energy, renewable fuels are becoming more widely adopted and readily available. Ethanol and other renewable fuels show promising potential when it comes to serving as a sustainable, low-carbon alternative to diesel fuel. 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 be incorporated into heavy equipment. John Deere is committed to providing the most advanced, affordable and efficient renewable fuel solutions. to end users.

With world-class engineering expertise, John Deere simplifies the integration of renewable fuels into combustion engines to deliver more value and productivity. To support its goal of providing differentiated powertrain solutions, John Deere has taken an equity stake in ClearFlame Engine Technologies, a Chicago-based startup dedicated to developing clean engine technology. John Deere has also ensured that today’s engines are compatible 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

Leveraging its best technologies in new ways to meet both market and customer demands, JDPS delivers new levels of reliability, durability, flexibility and serviceability for a wide range of heavy-duty applications with its next-generation engines.

These next-generation engines are designed for easy integration and simple maintenance so operators can stay on the job longer. They also offer operators reduced operating costs and comply with US EPA Final Tier 4 and Stage V emission regulations. The next-generation engine lineup includes the JD4, JD14 and JD18. With this extended power band, users can put John Deere power and performance across their entire line of equipment, from 36 to 677 kW (48 to 908 hp). The JD14 and JD18 are exhibited at Bauma.
