Major increase in use of DEUTZ engines by Italian genset manufacturer Visa SpA

  • Visa Group uses DEUTZ engines in genset and pump applications
  • Supply agreement volume to increase approximately fourfold
  • Quick, first-rate service around the world for DEUTZ engines in Onis Visa machines

Engine manufacturer DEUTZ and Visa Group are expanding their supply agreement. In future, the Italian genset manufacturer with brands such as Onis Visa, Nettuno and Tecnoplus S.A. will use significantly more DEUTZ engines in its extensive genset and pumps portfolio. The volume will already start to increase gradually over the course of 2017, with a view to eventually increasing the supply to around four times the original volume.

The agreement encompasses the supply of type B/FM 2011 and type BFM 1013 engines with a power output range of 30 to 250 kVA for genset applications as well as type B/FL 2011 and air-cooled type 912/914 engines for water pumps. These particularly robust diesel engines are ideal for use in the Middle East and Africa. The gensets can be used at any time, offering high availability and low maintenance even in extreme temperatures and under tough environmental conditions. This is reflected in the strong market demand for the products in these regions.

Under this supply agreement, DEUTZ guarantees its trademark rapid, high-quality
service, provided through its global service network for all Visa Group gensets and pumps that are fitted with DEUTZ engines.

“This agreement will help us to strengthen the growth potential of our company,” says Marco Barro, General Manager of Visa Group. “We are proud to be a partner of one of the world's leading engine manufacturers.”

Georg Diderich, Senior Vice President for Sales & Service EMEA (Europe, Middle East & Africa) at DEUTZ AG, adds: “We are delighted that Visa Group has decided to use more DEUTZ engines in future and that our partnership will grow substantially as a result.”
