FPT Industrial will supply 1,064 Cursor 13 Natural Gas engines to Iveco for the fleet of Iveco S-Way CNG trucks to be delivered to Amazon to support European operations. Amazon has already taken delivery of the first batch of 216 units to be operated by its partners in Europe, and another 848 units are on order with deliveries to start in mid-2022.
Built in the WCM Gold-Level Plant in Bourbon-Lancy (France), FPT Industrial’s Cursor 13 NG engine represents the best low environmental impact alternative for long-range operations. Indeed, it was developed to satisfy demanding requirements in terms of performance and operating costs, but without compromising its endurance. 

Based on cutting-edge technology and more than 20 years of experience with natural gas engines, the Cursor 13 NG provides diesel-like performance, a maximum power output of 460 HP at 1,900 rpm and maximum torque of 2,000 Nm at 1,100 rpm, thus offering 12% more power than the best competitors with the same technology. The Cursor 13 NG can run on 100% CNG, LNG or biomethane, and uses stoichiometric combustion to ensure improved fuel economy and reduced noise levels compared to diesel, achieving up to 40% fuel savings. When fueled by biomethane, it can cut CO2 emissions by up to 95% using a well-to-wheel CO2 measurement approach, effectively contributing to the decarbonization process of long-haul commercial transport. 

FPT Industrial for sustainable art

The Dutch artist Lennhart Lahuis is the winner of the second edition of the FPT for Sustainable Art Award, a project organized by FPT Industrial in partnership with Artissima 2021, with the aim of promoting sustainability issues that are also expressed in contemporary art. 

Lahuis’ installation, entitled “When Is It that We Feel Change in the Air?”, is an example of how context and materiality is manifested in a multi-layered process of what is considered “sustainable”. A display of industrial products reveal a system in which words evaporate through water. 

The FPT for Sustainable Art award was conceived together with Artissima with the aim of FPT Industrial conveying the company’s commitment, even in a context apparently far removed from the industrial one, and reaching an audience that is becoming increasingly attentive to these issues. Sustainability as a driver for the transformation of materials and creative and industrial processes: the award is intended to recognize an artist whose research and works are the result of a virtuous and sustainable conceptual production chain.

FPT Industrial: let’s go, XC13

The XC13 surely sounds agnostic in FPT Industrial’s unofficial nomenclature; it comes, indeed, with a tripartite certification: Euro 6E (winking an eye at the upcoming Euro 7), methane gas and also biofuel, with a link to hydrogen. Andrea Abbà, FPT’s product marketing manager, told us about dialogui...
