Scania Power Solutions has launched its next generation of inline engines for industrial, heavy machinery and power generation applications.
After a decade of engineering, Scania’s new engine platform is more fuel efficient and powerful, has a significantly increased lifespan and a large reduction in CO2 emissions.
Joel Granath, Senior Vice President and Head of Power Solutions at Scania, said: “This is our most fuel-efficient engine ever, with more torque, more power and up to 50 percent longer base engine lifespan. It’s a game-changer for Power Solutions.”
There are two new engines with varying power outputs for customers to choose from. The six-cylinder, 13-litre engine ranges from 368kW to 450kW, which delivers up to 11 percent more power and up to 21 percent more torque over the current generation engines. While the five-cylinder, 11-litre engine ranges from 202kW to 368kW.
The new engine platform continues the performance and reliability that customers expect from Scania, with increased reductions in CO2 emissions.
Built using cutting-edge technology, the new engines start better from cold, and enjoy longer service intervals and operating lifespans over the current generation. For example, the time between overhauls can be up to 25,000 hours.
Some of the other new design features include making the engines easier to service, more precise cooling, a more rigid engine block and cylinder head, and a more robust engine transmission with optimal gear strength.
Fuel efficiency is improved thanks to the enhanced gas exchange system, reduced internal friction and increased turbocharger efficiency.
Which means there’s up to seven percent improvement in fuel consumption with the new 13-litre engine compared to the current generation. That equates to around four litres of diesel saved per hour at full load.
Henrik Nilsson, Scania’s Director Product Management, Power Solutions, said: “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.”
By utilising Scania’s leading position in trucks, buses and coaches, the technology is now filtering through to Power Solutions. It also meets the latest legislative demands and is compatible with biodiesel and HVO.
Both engines go into serial production in 2024 for industrial, heavy equipment and power generation sets. Marine variants will join the line-up in the future.
