Scania Australia celebrates a decade of unbroken support as a major sponsor of AFAC in 2015.
Scania has 650 fire-fighting vehicles on duty across Australia, and is leading the roll out of Euro 6 emission vehicles generally. Canberra already has a fleet of 77 Scania Euro 6 compliant buses in service, and TNT has Scania Euro 6 B-doubles on the road, too. During 2015, the first Scania Euro 6 fire engines are arriving, destined for the Melbourne Fire Brigade. A fleet of 6 P370LB6x4MNA heavy tanker pumpers with bodies from Fraser Fire & Rescue in New Zealand joins a P410LB8x4HNB Bronto Aerial vehicle, as well as a P410LB6x4HNA Ultra Large Pumper Tanker built by SEM in Ballarat, Victoria. This is a prototype with scope for wide future application.
Both 370 hp and 410 hp Euro 6 engines are the first of their type delivered to any Australian customers, and are based on Scania’s modular 13-litre engine. The 370 version uses both EGR and SCR emission control technology, while the 410 hp engine is SCR only.
“Scania is delighted that the MFB is leading the way with environmentally friendly vehicles, well ahead of legislative requirements,” says Shane Griffin, Scania Australia National Sales Manager Specialist Vehicles.
“We look forward to explaining the benefits of this technology to the AFAC attendees.”
