Doosan extends engine collaboration with Scania
15 JANUARY 2020
Scania has signed an agreement with South Korean construction equipment manufacturer Doosan Infracore on continued engine deliveries.
Since cooperation between the two companies was first initiated in 2010, Scania has been a supplier of engines for several of Doosan’s heavy construction equipment segments. Scania’s engines were fitted to Norwegian Moxy’s articulated dump trucks already in the 1970s. This company was later acquired by Doosan Infracore, which then incorporated the use of Scania engines in the wide machinery portfolio offered by the company, including wheel loaders, excavators and articulated dump trucks.
“We at Scania welcome and are proud of Doosan’s continued confidence in our engines,” says Joel Granath, Senior Vice President, Scania Engines. “Our collaboration has gradually evolved and continues to rest on a mutual aspiration for excellence.”
During the contract period, Scania will continue to supply its 9- and 13-litre industrial engines for Doosan’s excavators, wheel loaders and articulated dump trucks for emission classes up to Tier 4 final and Stage V.
“Our long and successful cooperation with Scania is key to wanting to continue our partnership with them,” says Jan Roger Lindseth, Sales Marketing Manager, Doosan Infracore Norway. “The easy communication during development projects and the support for our projects is always very good.”
