Scania Engines announces rebranding
By Ian Cameron23 February 2021
Move follows electrification growth
Scania Engines has been rebranded Scania Power Solutions to reflect the widening range of power options Scania offers and the capabilities of its marine, industrial and power-generation engines range, the company said.
It added that the move comes at a key moment as Scania continues its journey towards electrification, where new types of motive power including electric motors and e-machines (electric motors plus their associated adjacent hardware) will progressively come to the fore.
“We are now rapidly approaching the point where the advances we have made in electrification will be shared with our engine customers,” said David Bamber, head of Power Solutions for Scania (Great Britain) Limited.
He added: “For example, the coming years will see new products such as hybrid Scania engines introduced for marine, industrial and power-generation applications as we progressively move toward full electrification. The Scania Power Solutions branding has been created to encompass this widening of our product portfolio and the extensive range of applications we cover.”
Typical marine applications include high speed patrol boats, ferries and workboats, while industrial engines are used by major operators such as Doosan and Terex, which employ Scania engines for dump trucks and power screens respectively. Scania is also a choice among generator set manufacturers for a diverse range of applications including music festivals, telecommunications in off-grid areas and emergency standby power plants for hospitals, sports stadia and large public buildings.
