Scania will provide Kobelco with low-emissions industrial engines to power its new models of the 300 ton hydraulic crawler cranes which will be launched worldwide. Scania will supply 13 L low-emission industrial engines to Kobelco for use in its latest crawler cranes with a lifting capacity of 300 metric tons. The first Kobelco product to be fitted with a Scania industrial engine will be launched in the U.S.
Scania’s 13 L 331kW industrial engine meets the Stage 4/Tier 4 final/Japan H26 emission standards without the need for a particulate filter. Customers in countries with other emission standards will benefit from Kobelco machinery powered by Scania’s low-emission engines., said Scania.
Kobelco’s Scania-powered products include the CK3300G-2 model for North America as well as the CKE3000G (for Europe) and CKS3000 for other markets.
Hiroaki Iwamitsu, managing executive officer at Kobelco’s Design and Development Engineering Division, said: “With this project, Kobelco is happy to take a new step forward with Scania. From the experience we have had with Scania on developing this new crane, we have seen the advanced technology and great cooperation Scania offers. We look forward to further success together in the future.”
Haruyuki Mayama, Engine sales manager, Scania Engines, Japan, said: “We are pleased to be selected as Kobelco’s partner to power its products. I am confident and look forward to a successful market introduction.”
