According to Scania, the revised powertrains based on Scania’s 13-litre engines offer 5%fuel savings and all the range needed for long-haul operations. More into details, the new biogas engines hinted last year at IAA Transportation in combination with the G25 gearboxes and axles from the diesel sibling are responsible of higher efficiency.

The Swedish manufacturer stated that the interest for locally produced biomethane fuels for trucks (such as Bio-LNG or Bio-CNG) is rapidly increasing. Biomethane-based solutions can help reducing emissions by up to 90% from a well-to-wheel perspective.

Scania relies on biogas for truck emissions reduction

Biomethane fuels are definitely the solution for those customers who want to start a de­carbonisation journey without any delay,” said Ola Henriksson, Senior Product Manager for Renewable Fuels at Scania Trucks. “Our biogas engines cover a wide span of industries and applications. A 40-tonne tractor-and-trailer combination can achieve ranges of up to 1,800 km when specified with the biggest Bio-LNG tank solutions that we offer. Add the 460 hp and the 2300 Nm our OC13 engine offers to the equation and you have a perfect tool for European long-haul.”

With the CO2 reductions, the driveability and the ranges we offer now, I am con­vinced that more customers will recognise what a great solution this is,” added Henriksson. “There are so many obvious pros and virtually no cons at all. And the driver can also enjoy a significantly lower noise level.”
