Scania introduces new Euro 6 450 hp engine with SCR only; lower fuel consumption

Scania has broadened its range of Euro 6-certified truck engines with a 450 hp 13-liter engine that uses only SCR aftertreatment technology to meet Euro 6. This solution offers reduced complexity and lower diesel consumption for most driving situations, whether for long-haulage or other applications. The new Scania engine model (DC13 147) requires neither a variable geometry turbocharger nor an EGR cooler.

Our success with the 410 hp version of the 13-liter engine with only SCR has spurred us to go further down the road to reduce both complexity and diesel consumption. Our customers now have a range of 18 different models of Euro 6 engines to choose from. This gives them unique opportunities to tailor their powertrains for optimal performance, regardless of driving conditions or application.

—Joel Granath, Head of Product Management for Scania trucks

Engines using only SCR technology require more AdBlue, on the other hand. In the case of Scania, this is normally an average of 6% of diesel fuel, while engines with EGR and SCR normally come up to 3%. For those who want to optimize their diesel fuel capacity, Scania offers a wide assortment of AdBlue tanks, including special solutions that use vacant space inside the frame.

The new engine model has maximum torque of 2,350 N·m available from 1,000 r/min.

I do not usually see such misleading and ambiguous headlines here. To anyone in the heavy diesel industry, that headline suggests that Scania figured out how to meet Euro VI particulate emission limits without a DPF. Oh, they just dumped the EGR? Presumably they still retain the DPF? Back to Euro V technology for NOx there, but how do they manage to meet NOx limits in urban drive cycles? Euro V was notoriously worse than Euro IV in urban drive cycles due to lack of EGR as I understand it.
