The winnners of this year’s Diesel Progress Summit Awards have been announced at the Diesel Progress Summit 2023.

Held at the Galt House Hotel in Louisville, Kentucky, the Diesel Progress Summit brought together more than 200 delegates, presenters and sponsors to talk about ‘Technologies in Transition’.

This umbrella topic essentially covers changes across the power industry due to the introduction of new fuel types, including hydrogen, biofuels (including HVO), plus electrification.

These new fuels are intended to reduce related engine emissions and any environmental impact, while also achieving compliance with related legislation. But as they come online they are also driving the development and introduction of all-new powertrain technologies.

Nine awards were presented at the summit, with categories ranging from Powertrain Product of the Year and Engine Distributor of the Year, through to Engine of the Year.

This year’s winners (by category) are as follows:

Engine Technology of the Year

Gits Manufacturing – EGR and exhaust back-pressure valves

Powertrain Product of the Year

John Deere – 8 Series eAutoPower Electric Variable Transmission

Engine Distributor of the Year – North America

The winners were selected by a panel of independent judges who were chosen for their wealth of power industry knowledge.

KHL Group congratulates all this year’s winners and nominees.

The Diesel Progress Summit is an annual event which brings together delegates and presenters from a variety of key companies across the power sector to talk about issues being faced by the industry.
