Company’s stand at Bauma featured engine, electric power solutions
Scania brought several products to the Bauma show, including its new 13 L DC13 engine for industrial operations and power generation. On the stand, the engine was joined by the company’s E-machine and battery for electrified power solutions.
Attendees could also experience the next generation 11 L DC11 engine via augmented reality.
“This is our most fuel-efficient engine platform ever, with more torque, more power and up to 50 % longer base engine lifespan,” said Pär Olof Åhlin, product manager, Power Generation, Scania.
Scania said its new platform carries the performance and reliability that customers are used to from its products, but with added CO2 emission reductions.
“We want to empower a more sustainable future, and the leading position we have in trucks and buses now expands to industrial power,” said Åhlin.
The shift toward sustainability has definitely reached the construction segment, said the company, and as long as combustion engines are still in use – and they will be in the foreseeable future - their climate impact should be improved.
“You will see this in the non-road mobile machinery and earth moving equipment powered by Scania, and it is truly obvious in our new engine platform,” said Mert Uzel, product manager Industrial, Scania.
During the event in November, Italian rental gen-sets specialist Bruno showed a field test DC13 engine of Scania´s new platform installed in one of its applications.
