Green, greener, Scania
The transport industry is taking the ever looming threat of global warming to heart with cleaner and greener Euro engines becoming the norm. But Scania is taking things even further as it has delivered the world’s first gas truck, complying with Euro-6 emissions legislation, to one of its customers in Sweden – Bring Frigo.
The company, a division of Bring Logistics, specialises in safe transportation of fresh, chilled or frozen foods in the Nordic region and has the declared ambition of offering its customers the latest environmental solutions.
Arne Karlsson, president of Bring Frigo, points out: “We are keen to give our customers access to the latest in environmental technology and Euro 6 is the new standard we are offering from next year.” He adds that the new distribution truck from Scania features impressive performance and, running on biogas, offers very low emissions of CO2 and other harmful substances.
Scania’s gas engines are designed to provide the same performance as its diesel counterparts, with the power rating from the Euro-6 derivatives being 280 and 340 hp (208,81 and 253,54 kW). It can deliver either 1 350 or 1 600 Nm of torque.
