Last month, Scania France delivered the new vehicles, which are all equipped with Euro 6 CNG engines and will be operated by Veolia’s company Otus in the French capital city. With 4×2 and 6×2*4 configurations, 22 of these trucks will operate on the Plaine Saint-Denis site. Two additional units were included in the initial order to replace two vehicles from Veolia’s fleet.
In addition to the valuable qualities of Scania trucks, such as short wheelbase and high load capacity, Veolia chose them due to the competitive advantage offered by the NGV solution. With this important delivery to Veolia, Scania is positioned as leader of Euro 6 gas engines, besides being the first manufacturer to have supplied vehicles with this technology.
These are vehicles with near-zero emissions of fine particles and nitrogen oxide emissions reduced by up to 80%. Furthermore, the rate of CO2 released is much lower than a diesel engine and the use of renewable biomethane allows a 100% carbon-free solution.
With a smooth ride and comparable to diesel performance, Scania gas engines are particularly suitable for city distribution. Their low noise is an additional argument in their favor especially when the vehicles operate in urban areas where noise regulations are more stringent. The noise level is half of diesel engines.
