Dr. Sebastian Schulte, CEO and chairman of the Board of Management, Deutz AG, will present a keynote address at the 2023 Diesel Progress Summit highlighting how engine manufacturers and OEMs are successfully balancing and navigating the energy transition.
Dr. Schulte joined Deutz in January 2021 as a member of the Board of Management and chief financial officer (CFO) and labor director responsible for Finance, Human Resources, Purchasing and Information Services. In February 2022, he was named chief executive officer of Deutz AG in Cologne, Germany, and chairman of the Board of Management, responsible for Head-office Functions, Sustainability and the Regions.
Prior to joining Deutz AG, Dr. Schulte served in various management level positions at ThyssenKrupp AG. As CFO of the marine division of ThyssenKrupp Companhia Siderúrgica do Atlântico / Ternium Brasil, he contributed to the successful restructuring and sale of the company’s steelworks in Rio de Janeiro. From 2018 to 2020, he was managing director and CFO of ThyssenKrupp Marine Systems in Hamburg/Kiel, Germany.
Dr. Schulte’s keynote address will take place during the fifth annual Diesel Progress Summit, which will be held Sept. 24-25 at the Crowne Plaza Louisville Airport Expo Center in Louisville, Ky., prior to the opening of the Utility Expo. This unique conference, networking and awards program for the engine, powertrain and emerging power technology industries explores powertrain technologies used in construction, agriculture, mining, forestry and marine, as well as on-highway commercial vehicles.
With the theme “Technologies of Transition”, conference topics will include an update on battery technologies, the state of development in electric motors, alternative fuel use in power generation, and more. The program will also include two roundtable discussions highlighting:
- progress in low- and zero-carbon fuels with presenters from Southwest Research Institute, Neste and New Holland;
- and developments in hydrogen combustion engine technology with representatives from Cummins, JCB and Liebherr.
A further highlight of the event will be the Diesel Progress Summit Awards presentation, which recognizes achievements in a wide range of categories. For information on the how to submit a nomination, click here or email Becky.Schultz@khl.com.
The 2023 Summit follows four highly successful events and is intended for machine and vehicle OEMs, equipment owners, engine manufacturers and distributors, and component and powertrain suppliers.
Given the dramatic changes in engines and powertrains being driven by emission regulations and advances in hybrid, electrification and other technologies, there has never been a greater need for relevant and authoritative information. If your work involves engines, powertrains or new power technologies, this is an event you don’t want to miss!
