Scania is developing a fuel cell refuse truck together with Renova, a waste handling company in western Sweden. The truck will feature a fully electrified powertrain as well an electrified compactor.
Scania has been named OEM of the Year 2017 at the TU-Automotive awards in Detroit; the most influential awards in the connected car industry.
The joint announcement by Swedish Prime Minister Stefan Löfven and Chancellor Merkel of "Innovation and Cooperation for a Sustainable Future" aims to strengthen the two nations' sustainability, economic and technological competitiveness, and covers four areas, including mobility and electrical roads.
Scania is taking another step forward in sustainability by introducing engines for industrial applications that operate on HVO and RME.
Scania and Doosan have deepened their long-standing cooperation with the signing of an agreement for Scania to supply the engines for two new generators. The new Scania-powered generators are produced by Doosan Portable Power and are being launched at the Bauma 2016 exhibition in Munich, 11–17 April.
The partnership involves Scania supplying engines from its complete range of 9-, 13- and 16-litre models. A particular focus will be on meeting what is currently the most stringent emission standard, Tier 4f. Equipment that meets Tier 2 and Tier 3 emission standards will also be introduced.
Scania and Doosan Infracore, have agreed to further deepen their cooperation where Scania is delivering engines for articulated dump trucks and large wheel loaders. From 2014 Scania will supply Tier4 final engines for Doosan Large Excavators intended for Europe and North America.
Scania Top Team, Scania’s competition-like training programme for its service technicians and parts experts, is about to begin. Some 8,000 participants from over 60 countries develop their skills by combining training and teamwork while competing. The resulting benefit for Scania customers is more effective service.
You have a number of considerations when purchasing articulated haul trucks for your operation. Truck capacity, loading capabilities, hauling distance, road conditions and dump cycle times are just a few elements that are traditionally analyzed to determine the correct number and size of trucks to increase productivity and efficiency, and reduce operating costs.
