Ninety Scania engines for Hägglunds
Scania has received a sub-order for 90 engines from Hägglunds Vehicle AB for installation in Swedish Stridsfordon 90 combat vehicles.
The new order from Hägglunds Vehicle AB is for the Scania 16-litre, V8 – an engine which is ideal for military applications thanks to its compact dimensions. The output of the unit will be 620-680 hp, depending on the duty.
The engines will be delivered in 2003 and installed in Stridsfordon 90 combat vehicles for export to Finland and Switzerland as part of orders totalling approximately 240 vehicles.
"We have already supplied engines for similar vehicles currently in service with the Swedish and Norwegian armies," says Lennart Hjelte, Senior Vice President and head of Scania Industrial and Marine Engines, "and it feels very satisfactory to continue our long-standing cooperation with Hägglunds by supplying them with our latest engine."
