Following the success of “Scania Orange Days” in Koblenz last year, with a wide spectrum of municipal vehicles on display, the event this year migrates to the exhibition grounds in Munich. The vehicles on display include a Euro 6 sewer cleaner vehicle, a road sweeper with hydrostatic drive, a waste collector with low-entry cab and a light all-wheel-drive chassis for construction or fire-fighting.
IFAT Entsorga in Munich, 7-11 May 2012, is the world’s premier trade show for water, sewage, waste and raw materials handling. Scania has an outdoor stand, F5 502/2, and Scania vehicles are found at other exhibitors’ stands as well. Scania is also represented by two vehicles in the “Trucks in Action” area.
“Following the successful launch of the Scania Orange Days in April 2011 in Koblenz, we now invite our customers to IFAT in Munich,” says Christian Teichmann, Truck Sales Director at Scania Germany Austria.
“Thanks to Scania's modular product system, our customers can tailor their vehicles precisely to suit their needs, with the reliability, robustness and efficiency inherent in a Scania vehicle. With the availability of Euro 6 engines in this segment, Scania can offer forward-looking customers a good solution,” says Teichmann.
“Our presence at IFAT Entsorge shows Scania’s long-term commitment in the areas of waste disposal, cleaning and recycling. We can tailor highly specialised and efficient vehicles according to the needs of the customer, who also has access to the full support offered by Scania's comprehensive service network,” explains Christian Teichmann.
