Scania Launches New Inline Engine Platform
With great power density, a significantly increased lifespan and major CO2-emission improvement, Scania’s next generation inline engine platform sets a new standard for fuel efficiency in power solutions.
“This is our most fuel-efficient engine ever, with more torque, more power and up to 50% longer base engine lifespan. A game-changer for power solutions,” said Joel Granath, senior vice president and head of Power Solutions, Scania.
The enhanced gas exchange system, reduced internal friction, and increased turbocharger efficiency all have a positive impact on the fuel-efficiency. For the 13 l engine, this means up to 7% improvement in fuel consumption compared to the current generation at the same power output. That translates to 4 l of diesel saved per engine hour at full load.
As long as combustion engines are still in use, their climate impact should be improved. The platform carries the performance and reliability that customers are used to from Scania, but with added CO2-emission reductions. It also meets the demands for changes in legislation, and is compatible with biodiesel blends and HVO.
The new engine platform is built using cutting-edge technology, and to add value to the customers’ operations has been top of mind. For example, the time between overhauls is up to 25,000 hours. Some of the new design features include more precise cooling, a more rigid engine block and cylinder head, and a more robust engine transmission with optimal gear strength.
“Our mindset throughout the development of the new platform has been to ease the transition for our customers while positively impacting fuel efficiency and product performance,” added Henrik Nilsson, Scania’s director product management, Power Solutions.
The 13 l engine has a power range from 368 to 450 kW (490 to 600 hp) and delivers up to 11% more power and 21% more torque than the current generation. The 11 l engine has a power range from 202 to 368 kW (270 to 490 hp).
