Scania and Kobelco Construction Machinery announce partnership
Scania is due to provide Kobelco with low-emissions industrial engines that will be used to power its new models of the 300t hydraulic crawler cranes. The products will be launched worldwide.
Scania and Kobelco Construction Machinery have agreed that Scania will supply
13-litre low-emission industrial engines to Kobelco for use in its latest crawler cranes with a lifting capacity of 300 metric tons. The first Kobelco product to be fitted with a Scania industrial engine will be launched in the US.
Hiroaki Iwamitsu, Managing Executive Officer at Kobelco’s Design & Development Engineering Division, says: “With this project, Kobelco is happy to take a new step forward with Scania. From the experience we have had with Scania on developing this new crane, we have seen the advanced technology and great cooperation Scania offers. We look forward to further success together in the future.”
Haruyuki Mayama, Engine Sales Manager, Scania Engines in Japan, says: “We are pleased to be selected as Kobelco’s partner to power its products. I am confident and look forward to a successful market introduction.”
Scania’s 13-litre 331kW industrial engine meets the Stage IV/Tier 4 final/Japan H26 emission standards without the need for a particulate filter. Customers in countries with other emission standards will benefit from Kobelco machinery powered by Scania’s low-emission engines.
Kobelco’s Scania-powered products include the CK3300G-2 model (for North America), as well as the CKE3000G (for Europe) and CKS3000 (for other markets).
Scania engines are characterised by the generous torque they provide at low revs, as well as their prompt response, low fuel consumption, low life cycle costs, high power-to-weight ratio and tried and tested quality. Scania also offers a global service network with more than 2,000 strategically located service points.
