SCANIA DRIVES NEW STANDARD FOR ENVIRONMENTAL EMISSIONS AGAIN
Delivers First Low Emission Euro 6 Coach
Jan 20th 2017 Singapore – Today, Scania delivered their first Euro 6 coach to long-time customer Big S Holiday Pte Ltd, ushering in a new era to its commitment of providing businesses in Singapore with the widest range of sustainable transport solutions. Big S Holiday has been involved in the business of land transportation since 1988 – almost nearly three decades, also part of an associate company to JTB Singapore Pte Ltd.
With a strong history in sustainability and care for the environment Scania became the first manufacturer in Europe to put vehicles with Euro 6 engines on the road back in March 2011, enabling foresighted businesses to invest in the cleanest emission technology available. This market-leading practice continues today with the inaugural Euro 6 delivery in Singapore, well ahead of the 1 January 2018 date mandated by The National Environment Agency (NEA). Singapore’s leading public organisation responsible for improving and sustaining a clean and green environment had announced the new standards at the end of 2014 for which only Euro 6 commercial vehicles can be registered.
This technology truly delivers on the latest and greenest future-proof transport solutions, enabling businesses to get true value from their investment. Building on the latest engine platform, the new Euro 6 coach promises uncompromised performance, highest torque to-to-power ratio in the industry, maximum drivability with low-rev cruising options and operating economy through lower fuel consumption.
In redefining the acceptable limits for exhaust emission with the Euro 6 standards, nitrogen oxide levels are reduced by 80% and particulate levels reduce by 50% compared to predecessor Euro 5, presenting real environmental benefits to the people of Singapore.
“This first Scania Euro 6 coach delivery is an important environmental milestone for Singapore, our customers and Scania. We are, first and foremost, a solutions provider, building sustainable transport solutions that are commercially viable with minimal impact to the environment. We are enthusiastic and pleased to partner with our customers to tailor-make a package of products and services that help protect the environment while driving down operating costs, maximise productivity and keeping drivers safe and comfortable,” said Mark Cameron, Regional Director of South Malaysia and Singapore, Country Manager of Scania Singapore.
Mr. Thanse Sng, Managing Director of Big S Holiday added: “We are looking forward to the new Euro 6 low emission levels, taking social responsibility to the next level. We are proud to have partnered with Scania for this historic moment in Singapore.”
Big S Holiday, who in receiving their first Scania K360IB4x2 looks forward to many more partnership opportunities with Scania.
Scania has already delivered the first Euro 6 truck in November last year.
