Scania Delivers Engines for Oshkosh Airport Products'
Scania has been selected as the main supplier for Oshkosh® H-Series™ Single Engine Blower. These snow trucks will be operating globally at airports, municipalities, departments of transportation (DOT’s), and more.
The H-Series Single Engine Blower, powered with a Scania 13 l Tier 4 final (T4f) engine, was introduced at the 50th Annual International Aviation Snow Symposium, held at the Buffalo Niagara Convention Center in Buffalo, New York on April 23-27.
"We chose Scania for several reasons. First, Scania offered us a T4f emission solution that was SCR and light EGR, but no DPF. This was a critical requirement for our more northern customers such as Alaska. Second, Scania was able to provide us the single-engine machine's needed hp and torque requirements in a 12-13 l platform. Third, Scania's FEPTO (front engine power take off) ratings allowed us to drive the hydraulic pump size we needed for the SEB hydrostatic drive system. All in all, Scania was the best choice to meet several of our critical design requirements in the development of the SEB product. In addition, Scania has a world-wide service network to support their products and our customers. This was an important element in our decision process as well, since Oshkosh has world-wide distribution," says Les Crook, Snow Products manager, Oshkosh Airport Products.
“We are excited to expand our partnership with Oshkosh, to include supplying engines for their industry leading snow removal equipment, also within Oshkosh Airport Products. As time progresses, we expect to find a range of opportunities where both parties can grow their businesses, and the new H-Series Single Engine Blower is a great fit.” says Art Schuchert, sales and marketing director, Scania U.S.A., Inc.
The H-Series Single Engine Blower meets the 2017 EPA emissions standards, allowing the vehicle to be power and energy efficient. In addition, the Scania SCR emissions solution requires no DPF.
