Scania to supply engines to world leading construction equipment manufacturer
Scania and Doosan Infracore, one of the world’s largest manufacturers of construction equipment, have signed a memorandum of understanding about Scania delivering engines for Doosan’s products for the global market.
“We want reliable engines with outstanding performance and a global service network where our customers can get excellent support,” says Seung Woo (Steve) Yang, Managing Director and COO at Doosan Moxy. “We found that in Scania’s offering.”
Robert Sobocki, Senior Vice President and Head of Scania Engines, says, “One of Scania’s strengths is that we can deliver highly fuel-efficient and reliable engines that fulfill Stage IIIB and Tier 4 Interim emission legislation. The result is a low total ownership cost for the operator.”
The agreement with Doosan Infracore will give Scania access to the growing Asian market for construction equipment.
The Scania engines being supplied are equipped with SCR (Selective Catalytic Reduction) emission control technology. The engines satisfy the requirements of emission legislation that comes into force 2011, and are prepared for the 2014 legislation, Stage IV and Tier 4 Final. Doosan Infracore is expected to require well over a thousand engines over the next few years.
In January, Scania also signed an agreement to supply engines to Terex Corporation, a leading manufacturer of construction and industrial equipment based in North America. As a result, Scania has a comprehensive global presence in the market for construction equipment.
Scania has been supplying engines to Moxy, the Norwegian manufacturer of articulated dump trucks, for the past 30 years. In 2008 Doosan Infracore acquired Moxy, and this long relation opened an opportunity for Scania to supply engines for Doosan’s products manufactured in Korea.
Doosan Infracore is the leading machine company in Korea, producing construction equipment, machine tools and engines. Doosan Infracore is a part of the global Doosan Corporation.
