SINGAPORE, Dec. 11, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- China Yuchai International Limited (NYSE: CYD) ("China Yuchai" or the "Company"), announced today that the first vehicles using heavy-duty diesel engines produced by the Company's main operating subsidiary, Guangxi Yuchai Machinery Company Limited ("GYMCL"), have been delivered to Zibo Yaoxin Logistics Co., Ltd (ZYL).
The Shandong office of GYMCL together with Dongfeng Liuzhou Motor Co., Ltd., recently participated in a ceremony in Zichuan District, Zibo in Shandong Province, marking the delivery of 10 heavy-duty trucks powered by GYMCL's YC6MK engines to ZYL. With over 100 vehicles in its fleet, ZYL mainly transports ceramics and chemical materials between the ports of Zibo and Weifang in Shandong Province. ZYL previously used vehicles powered by engines from other manufacturers but has now decided to switch to GYMCL's engines.
The YC6MK 6-cylinder engine is an upgraded model from the existing 6M engine using newly developed 6K technology. This new generation, patented four-valve, supercharged, heavy-duty engine is compliant with National 4 emission standards. The YC6MK's four-valve technology with its unique combustion system provides increased power while reducing fuel consumption.
Weng Ming Hoh, president of China Yuchai, commented, "We welcome ZYL as a new customer and we are pleased that our advanced, heavy-duty diesel engine has been exclusively preferred over other engine manufacturers. The selection of our YC6MK engine is an endorsement of its enhanced power, higher reliability, environmental friendliness and lower fuel consumption. We believe this initial order signals a good opportunity for us to expand further in this region."
