The next-generation Scania engine establishes new norms for fuel economy thanks to its high power density, significantly increased life expectancy, and substantially reduced CO2 emissions. After a decade of technological innovation and development, Scania's new engine platform is finally complete.
"This is the most cost-effective engine we've ever manufactured." It also produces higher torque and power. The standard Scania engine lasts up to 50% longer. "This is a true game changer in power generation," says Joel Granath, Scania's Senior Vice President and Head of Power Solutions. Fuel consumption is lowered when valve control is improved, internal friction is reduced, and turbocharger efficiency is raised. The 13-liter engine equals a 7% reduction in fuel consumption compared to the current model - while maintaining the same performance. This equates to a savings of four liters of fuel per operating hour at full load.
As long as combustion engines are used, their environmental effect must be minimized. The engines provide Scania customers with the performance and reliability they expect, as well as lower CO2 emissions. "We aim to contribute to a more sustainable future." Our position as a major truck and bus manufacturer also includes the production of industrial engines used in power generating." The units also comply with the regulatory requirements and are appropriate for 20% biodiesel and 100% HVO.
The new engines are built with cutting-edge technology, with additional value for consumers as the primary focus. For example, the overhaul interval is up to 25,000 operational hours. The new design's characteristics are more proper cooling, an optimized engine block, a structurally strengthened cylinder head, and a more robust engine control with high-strength gears.
"We focused on making the transition easy for our clients while favorably affecting fuel efficiency and product performance while building the new platform," says Henrik Nilsson, Scania's Director of Product Management, Power Solutions.
