Jacobs Vehicle Systems, a global manufacturer of diesel and natural gas engine retarding systems and valve actuation mechanisms, announced it will supply its compression release engine brake in China to Hino Motors Co. for its new 10.5-liter U11C diesel engine.
These new compression release engine brakes are manufactured at Jacobs’ Suzhou facility in Jiangsu, China, and supplied to Hino’s engine manufacturing plant in Shanghai.
The engine is a new model for the Chinese market that is compliant with new China 6 emissions standards and will be specified on Hino heavy-duty trucks later this year, according to the Bloomfield, Conn.-based company.

“As we are seeing in many global markets, there is a growing need for secondary braking and retardation in the heavy-truck sector,” said Jacobs’ Harbort Wu, Asia director of business development and engineering.
This new release follows the signing in 2018 of a long-term supply agreement between Jacobs and Hino Motors to allow the expansion of the two companies’ working relationship and to bring new technologies to the market. The long-standing relationship between Jacobs and Hino began in the early 1990s when engine brakes were first installed on Hino K13C engines. — Transport Topics
