Commercial vehicle and engine manufacturer Scania has launched its marine engine platform with a set of 16-litre (V8), 13-litre and 9-litre engines at the INMEX India maritime event. With this launch, the company will now cater to the marine segment as per the announcement made in June this year at INTEC in Coimbatore.

Every year Scania builds more than 80,000 engines. Globally, Scania engines are found in trucks, buses, industrial and marine operation, as well as in the power generation sector.

Scania has appointed Aries Technical Services, Mumbai as their authorized dealers for marine engines in the segment of propulsion, auxiliary and marine gensets for all institutional segments.

Key characteristics of Scania's marine engine range:
  • Focus on fuel economy, reliability and uptime
  • Easy-to-service Scania architecture with individual cylinder heads
  • Modular design across the range facilitates parts supply and servicing
  • Scania engine management system – performance can be tailored to each task
  • Compliance with latest emission standards
  • Type approved

Scania is investing about Rs. 250 crore in an industrial facility in Bengaluru which will also be the center of the company’s commercial operations in the country. Scania’s ambition is to sell about 2,000 trucks & 1,000 coaches per year in the Indian market, within the next five years. The factory is being constructed in an industrial area 40 km east of Bengaluru. It is estimated that almost 800 people will be employed at the facility in long term. The industrial operations will consist of final assembly of trucks with bodywork and building of complete coaches with bodywork. The head office of Scania’s Indian company, along with a service workshop and a central parts warehouse will be housed at the same location.

Scania has been in the Indian market since 2007, when a partnership was initiated with Larsen & Toubro (L&T). L&T currently operates about 10 Scania service workshops at various mining sites in the country. In 2011, Scania established the company Scania Commercial Vehicles India in order to boost its presence through sales to additional segments of the Indian commercial vehicle market. Scania recently launched a new range of on-road haulage truck models - the R 500 6x4, the G 460 6x4 and the P 410 6x2. The P 410 8x4 mining tipper was launched in December 2012.
