Dettingen/Erms (euro adhoc) - ElringKlinger subsidiary Hug Engineering secures
major contract for exhaust abatement systems used in off-road applications

Elsau (Switzerland), Dettingen/Erms (Germany) August 09, 2011  +++
ElringKlinger's Swiss subsidiary, Hug Engineering AG, is to develop and
produce the complete exhaust abatement technology for a series of
construction vehicles of an international manufacturer specializing in
engines and vehicles for off-road applications.

Hug will supply systems for exhaust after-treatment, which comprise
both a catalytic diesel particulate trap filter and a selective
catalytic NOx reduction (SCR) unit. In addition to meeting the Euro 3B
emission standard, the system also complies with exhaust noise

Hug is to develop exhaust abatement systems for a series of
construction machines driven by diesel engines. The systems are to be
supplied as from 2012. Spanning a period of three years, the contract
is worth several million euros towards the lower end of the double-
digit range.

In response to more stringent emission standards worldwide, engines
used in commercial vehicles as well as in the off-road segment are
being equipped to an increasing extent with comprehensive exhaust after-
treatment systems.

In cooperation with ElringKlinger AG, Hug Engineering AG is also
looking to supply original-equipment customers in the commercial
vehicle sector with exhaust abatement systems, particularly in the area
of heavy-duty applications. Combined with ElringKlinger CleanCoat
coating material for soot reduction, Hug diesel particulate filters are
to be used in the commercial vehicle sector as well as in off-road
vehicles and in stationary applications.

ElringKlinger AG acquired a majority interest in Swiss-based exhaust
treatment specialist Hug Engineering AG effective from May 1, 2011.
