Diesel Engine Injection Specialists in J/V

Press Release
Wednesday, March 27, 2013

Switzerland's Hoerbiger technology group & Germany's L’ Orange GmbH establish a new company, D'Blue, to serve the Asian market.

Hoerbiger and L’Orange GmbH, Stuttgart, a subsidiary of the Tognum Group, are working together to enhance their product portfolio for the equipping of two- and four-stroke engines in the power class of 100 kW per cylinder and higher. Under the name D’Blue, the two companies will be acting as a system supplier for injection and control technology for large engines with compression ignition—e.g. for ships and locomotives.


Hoerbiger and L’Orange say they are using their position as technology leaders to meet growing market requirements: more stringent legislation as well as the customers’ ongoing quest for increased cost effectiveness are fuelling demand for efficient, environmentally friendly complete solutions for diesel and dual-fuel systems. L’Orange is supplying the diesel injection technology and Hoerbiger will deliver the gas injector valves, actuators, and engine control systems. 


Although Hoerbiger and L’Orange are acting as collaboration partners for this technology, they will remain separate and independent companies. Jens Hartrampf, Head of Engine Solutions, Hoerbiger Kompressortechnik Holding GmbH: “D’Blue constitutes a long-term collaboration agreement for the promising market segment of large engines with compression ignition. L’Orange is a strong partner with unrivalled experience in diesel injection for large engines. This collaboration agreement allows us to offer our customers high-performance complete solutions which will also enable future emission and efficiency requirements to be met.”
