Scania and the South Korean equipment manufacturer Doosan Infracore have agreed to further increase their current cooperation. According to a Letter of Intent, Scania, from 2014, will not only supply engines for Doosan’s articulated dump trucks and large wheel loaders but also other products within the Doosan range.
“In the long term, we are estimating delivery of well over 3,000 engines annually to Doosan Infracore. This cooperation has strengthened our position in the growing Asian market,” says Robert Sobocki, Senior Vice President and Head of Scania Engines.
Doosan Infracore is well positioned within the Chinese market. Several models from a total of over 20,000 machines sold annually in China will be powered by Scania engines.
“We have tested Scania’s engines in our products and they meet our expectations for reliability, outstanding performance and high fuel efficiency. We also appreciate Scania’s modular concept. One engine platform for all emission levels is of great benefit. For instance, it helps in our design installation work and thanks to Scania’s global service network, our customers also get access to excellent support,” says Andrew H. Choi, Sourcing Director at Doosan Infracore.
Robert Sobocki adds, “Our engines fulfill our OEMs’ expectations and their experience tells us that not only do we have powerful systems to offer, the fuel efficiency has also improved.”
Scania industrial engines will manage Stage IV and Tier 4 Final with exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and selective catalytic reduction (SCR) technology but without a particulate filter. The newly developed engine platform is the same for all emission levels ranging from Stage II to Stage IV and is extremely reliable.
Doosan Infracore is the leading machine manufacturing company in Korea, producing a wide portfolio including construction equipment and machine tools. Doosan Infracore is a part of the global Doosan Corporation.
Scania will showcase the Scania Stage 4/Tier 4 Final engine at INTERMAT 2012, stand G 151, Hall 5A.
Doosan Infracore will be showing the company’s construction equipment products at INTERMAT on stand 6-G079 in Hall 6.
