Scania Opts for Cummins In Euro 6 Buses
Once again, Cummins has notched a major order for its ISB6.7 diesel from a global vehicle manufacturer. The company has announced that it will supply the engines to Scania for use in its Euro 6 buses. The six-cylinder 6.7 L ISB engine is available for a range of ultralow emissions public transport solutions, Cummins said, and peak torques of 1100 Nm (811 lb. ft.) make it ideal for tough city bus duty cycles, the company added.
"Cummins and Scania have a long-standing partnership developing and manufacturing high pressure fuel systems for the latest low emission engines,” said Neil Pattison, director - Automotive Engine Business for Europe, Middle East and Africa at Cummins. “Our components division has also been supplying turbochargers and filtration components to them for a number of years. This is the first time Scania has specified Cummins engines, and we are delighted to be able to supply our Euro 6 ISB engines for their latest city buses."
For Euro 6 the ISB6.7 utilizes cooled exhaust gas recirculation and variable geometry turbocharging. The engine technologies are matched to the aftertreatment system, designed and manufactured by Cummins Emission Solutions, combining a diesel particulate filter with selective catalytic reduction to meet the ultralow Euro 6 levels.
It’s the second major deal for the ISB6,7 within the last two months. In early September, Navistar announced it would add the Cummins ISB to its offerings to allow the company to get to market faster with medium-duty selective catalytic reduction (SCR) vehicles.
