ECOLUTION

LET’S THINK OUTSIDE THE TANK

A revolution in fuel economy

Ecolution by Scania is our most comprehensive and powerful solution to improve your fuel economy. Our deep understanding of your operation enables us to optimise your vehicle, tailor driver management and introduce an extended maintenance programme. The result is lower fuel consumption and CO₂ emissions.

ANALYSIS

Operational data from your existing vehicle tells us how to minimise your fuel consumption and emissions.

SOLUTION

We work together to optimise your specifIcation, driving and maintenance to offer the best solution.

RESULT

Ecolution by Scania delivers average fuel savings of 10% as well as cuts in CO₂ emissions.

BETTER BUSINESS FROM A WIDER PERSPECTIVE

ANALYSIS

Ecolution by Scania evolves around your specific operation. Every decision is tailor-made to fit your needs. In order to understand those needs, we analyse several things about your operation.

YOUR TRANSPORT

The specific needs related to your application is a natural premise.

YOUR LOAD

The weight of your cargo is one of the parameters that will affect the optimal choice of driveline.

YOUR ROADS

The topography of the routes, speed and traffic situation are all taken into consideration.

YOUR DRIVERS

We analyse the way your drivers use their vehicle to help them increase fuel efficiency and reduce wear and tear.

SOLUTION

The results of our analysis help frame our common goal. We work towards a fuel consumption target by taking action within the following areas.

VEHICLE
DRIVING
MAINTENANCE
PARTNERSHIP
POWERTRAIN
AIR DEFLECTORS
ALTERNATIVE FUELS
GEARING

Optimised specification

The vehicle is specified to perform in a way that reduces fuel consumption without compromising efficiency. The process covers choice of engine, gearing, air deflectors, support systems and possible usage of alternative fuels such as biogas, ethanol or biodiesel.

Powertrain

An optimised powertrain means that the engine together with the gearbox and rear axle are matched to perform at their best – with respect both to fuel efficiency and expected workload.

OPTIMISED SPECIFICATION

The vehicle is specified to perform in a way that reduces fuel consumption without compromising efficiency. The process covers choice of engine, gearing, air deflectors, support systems and possible usage of alternative fuels such as biogas, ethanol or biodiesel.

Air Deflectors

Air deflectors improve the aerodynamics of the vehicle and reduce air resistance significantly. Both roof and side air deflectors are available in different sizes, and the choice of deflector depends on the particular transport task.

OPTIMISED SPECIFICATION

The vehicle is specified to perform in a way that reduces fuel consumption without compromising efficiency. The process covers choice of engine, gearing, air deflectors, support systems and possible usage of alternative fuels such as biogas, ethanol or biodiesel.

ALTERNATIVE FUELS

One way to further reduce CO2 emissions is through the use of alternative fuels. Biodiesel, gas, RME and ethanol are examples of viable alternatives and Scania is committed to increasing the use of these, dependent on the customers’ needs.

GEARING

Specifying the right gearbox and gear axle ratio will optimise the engine revs according to your transport profile. Scania Opticruise will automatically choose the most efficient gear.

THE TRAINING STARTS

SUPPORT SYSTEMS

OPTIMISED DRIVING

Education is a long-term investment. But when it comes to driver training, the results are immediate, boosting your drivers and business in ways you may not be aware of or think possible. Both new and seasoned drivers will see lasting improvements.

THE TRAINING STARTS

Almost immediately after Scania Driver Training starts, the driver will start driving defensively, reducing fuel consumption by up to 10%.

OLD DRIVING PATTERNS

After initial driver training, it’s still easy to slide back in to old habits, no matter how good the effects were at the start.

OPTIMISED DRIVING

Education is a long-term investment. But when it comes to driver training, the results are immediate, boosting your drivers and business in ways you may not be aware of or think possible. Both new and seasoned drivers will see lasting improvements.

FEEDBACK – INSTANTLY AND MONTHLY

The driver gets instant feedback on their performance. A coach will call the driver one month after the initial training with feedback based on information received from their vehicle’s telematics unit. Ongoing monthly feedback will ensure continuing development – and reduce fuel consumption.

SUPPORT SYSTEMS

Systems such as Scania Active Prediction and Scania Driver Support assist the driver in driving the vehicle in a way that delivers the lowest possible fuel consumption.

AIR DEFLECTOR ADJUSTMENT
TYRE STATUS
AXLE ALIGNMENT

OPTIMISED MAINTENANCE

We ensure that the vehicle remains in the best possible condition with a specially designed agreement. The checkpoints are additions to a regular maintenance programme, including checks of tyre pressure and tyre status, axle alignment, air deflector adjustment, and more.

AIR DEFLECTOR ADJUSTMENT

Wind tunnel and fuel tests all show that a vehicle’s fuel consumption is greatly affected by the roof air deflector height in relation to the bodywork. The angle of the air deflector is optimised at the workshop.

OPTIMISED MAINTENANCE

We ensure that the vehicle remains in the best possible condition with a specially designed agreement. The checkpoints are additions to a regular maintenance programme, including checks of tyre pressure and tyre status, axle alignment, air deflector adjustment, and more.

TYRE STATUS

Under or over inflation of the tyres can be costly and even dangerous. Correct tyre pressure secures low-rolling resistance and the lowest fuel consumption and as a consequence a long life length of the tyres.

AXLE ALIGNMENT

Axles that are not aligned will increase fuel consumption. Measuring the axle and wheel alignment and adjusting if needed will reduce wear, and in the long run costs, through increased tyre life length. One degree of misalignment usually means more than 1% higher fuel consumption.

SETTING THE TARGET
MONTHLY REPORT
REVIEW MEETING

CONTINUOUS FOLLOW-UP

Key to reaching the target is tight teamwork between both parties. Scania takes the lead in all work requiring your involvement, keeping you up to date with monthly progress reports. This is followed by quarterly meetings to discuss ways to improve overall performance.

SETTING THE TARGET

Your existing operation establishes a reference fuel consumption. The analysis then suggests a target fuel consumption that is jointly agreed upon. Collaboration is key, and Scania takes the lead in the continuous performance-improvement work.

CONTINUOUS FOLLOW-UP

Key to reaching the target is tight teamwork between both parties. Scania takes the lead in all work requiring your involvement, keeping you up to date with monthly progress reports. This is followed by quarterly meetings to discuss ways to improve overall performance.

MONTHLY REPORT

Every month you will receive a progress report on your reference fuel consumption and the target fuel consumption.

CONTINUOUS FOLLOW-UP

Key to reaching the target is tight teamwork between both parties. Scania takes the lead in all work requiring your involvement, keeping you up to date with monthly progress reports. This is followed by quarterly meetings to discuss ways to improve overall performance.

REVIEW MEETING

Every third month we meet and look at overall performance, discussing areas of improvement and defining activities to make continuous improvements.

RESULT

Ecolution by Scania benefits your business financially as well as the environment. The improvements will show savings right away and in the long term.

SAVING FUEL

Ecolution by Scania works. Fuel savings on existing Ecolution vehicles are over 10% compared to the reference vehicle. You save right away and during the entire Ecolution programme.

SAVING EMISSIONS

Ecolution by Scania drastically reduces your costs, while you’re cutting emissions at the same speed. It’s a big step towards reducing our carbon footprint.

THE ROAD TO SUCCESS

“Ecolution is an effective way to save and make money. The best fuel saving result for an individual driver has been 16%.”
