AGCO Power Adopts Neste MY Renewable Diesel

AGCO Power, a Finnish engine manufacturer will start using Neste MY Renewable Diesel™ at its plant in Nokia, Finland. The fuel will replace fossil fuels in all internal logistics vehicles before the end of 2020. Neste and AGCO Power will also work on a joint research project to develop an automatic fuel identification system.

AGCO Power manufactures engines for Valtra, Fendt and Massey-Ferguson tractors, among others, as well as for off-road machines from several manufacturers. The company has the annual global plant capacity to manufacture more than 100,000 engines for off-road machines worldwide every year.

“Our goal is to be a pioneer and make lower-emission and more economical engines. Our low emission policy covers the entire production chain: by introducing Neste MY Renewable Diesel in our plant logistics and road transport, we can reduce our own annual greenhouse gas emissions by up to 130,000 kilos. Our goal is to gradually increase the use of renewable diesel also in engine testing. With these measures, we are also meeting our customers’ wishes for a lower environmental load,” says Juha Tervala, CEO of AGCO Power.

AGCO Power will adopt the Neste Oma Asema Service at its plant, a refueling station with an automatic refilling system.

“We are happy to support our long-term partner in their work towards a low-emission production chain. The Neste Oma Asema Service, available at the plant area, helps to avoid unnecessary driving and related emissions when the station is located in the company’s own plant area. In addition to Neste MY Renewable Diesel, the station has an option to refuel AdBlue urea solution, which can be used to reduce nitrogen oxide emissions and optimize engine performance,” says Teemu Sarjovaara, Head of R&D at Neste.
