Scania to Acquire GM Powertrain Plant in Sweden

Scania has signed a memorandum of understanding with GM Powertrain to acquire its production plant in Södertälje Sweden. The acquisition will enable Scania to increase engine component production capacity and to start production of a new generation of extra high-pressure injectors (XPI).

It´s an important step in the task of boosting Scania’s total production capacity to 100,000 vehicles by 2010. Another advantage is that we will have production and product development in close proximity to each other.

Since 1992, Scania has allied with Cummins to develop and manufacture injection systems for engines. This alliance led to development of Scania HPI, the injection system used in Scania trucks today, which will be replaced by XPI. The XPI systems may reach up to 2,500 bar (250 MPa, 36,000 psi). (Earlier post.)

With XPI, we can offer our truck and bus customers the best conceivable operating economy, while reducing emissions so that we meet both Euro 5 and 6 environmental standards.
