Scania Industrial engines ready for 2014
For over a century, Scania engines have been the muscle for some of the world’s toughest construction jobs. Scania industrial engines are ready for Stage IV and Tier 4 (final). Scania engine management and emission control ensure an attractive blend of customised performance and long-term operating economy.
Scania's highly regarded engines are developed at the Scania Technical Center in Sodertalje, Sweden, where advanced research and development is conducted on engine managment and exhaust aftertreatment. Industrial engines are developed in parallel with engines for trucks and buses, complying with emission legislations several years before thet take effect. Stage IIIB/Tier4i, for example, were ready in 2009.
Clean and refined combustion technology means that Scania manages the very stringent Stage IV and Tier 4 (final) regulations that apply from 2014 without the need for a particulate filter. Scania has many years’ experience of EGR (exhaust gas recirculation) and SCR (selective catalytic reduction) from trucks and buses.
Each of the three engine ranges has the same installation dimensions irrespective of emission level. The installation remains unaffected, which significantly reduces the efforts required from OEMs that are active on the global market.
Important factors in the industrial engine segment are high uptime, generous torque at low revs, good fuel economy and prompt engine response. These demands are all fulfilled with engines from Scania.
Scania’s philosophy is to secure full control of all strategic steps in development and performance control. All development is done in-house, including engine manage-ment, fuel injection and emission control. This provides exceptional flexibility in tailoring each installation precisely to its task.
Scania can thus ensure that each individual installation meets all demands and targets for performance and fuel economy, as well as for consistent environmental performance, robustness and convenience of operation.
Scania’s modular philosophy is implemented throughout the engine range.
This greatly facilitates servicing, repairs and parts supply, since the engines all share the same cylinder design, featuring for instance separate cylinder heads and replaceable liners and many of the moving parts. If you know one Scania, you know them all, regardless if it is an inline 9- or 13-litre or a 16-litre V8 engine.
Scania is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of trucks and buses for heavy transport applications, and of industrial and marine engines. Service-related products account for a growing proportion of the company’s operations, assuring Scania customers of cost-effective transport solutions and maximum uptime Scania also offers financial services. Employing some 38,600 people, the company operates in about 100 countries. Research and development activities are concentrated in Sweden, while production takes place in Europe and South America, with facilities for global interchange of both components and complete vehicles. In 2012, net sales totalled SEK 79.6 billion and net income amounted to SEK 6.6 billion. Scania press releases are available on www.scania.com (http://www.scania.com/se)
