Cummins has just announced that the latest ISB6.7 engines will be supplied to Scania for use in their Euro 6 buses. Displayed on Cummins stand at Busworld (No.407 in hall 4), the 6-cylinder 6.7 litre ISB engine is available up to 310 ps for a range of ultra low-emission public transport solutions. Peak torque is at a high level of 1100 Nm, making it ideal for tough city bus duty cycles.
Neil Pattison, Director – Automotive Engine Business for Europe, Middle East and Africa, said: “Cummins and Scania have a long standing partnership developing and manufacturing high pressure fuel systems for the latest low emission engines. Our components division has also been supplying turbochargers and filtration components to them for a number of years. This is the first time Scania has specified Cummins engines, and we are delighted to be able to supply our Euro 6 ISB engines for their latest city buses.”
For Euro 6 the ISB6.7 comes with the proven engine technologies of cooled exhaust gas recirculation (EGR) and variable geometry turbocharging (VGT). The engine technologies are matched to the aftertreatment system, designed and manufactured by Cummins Emission Solutions, combining a Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) with Selective Catalytic Reduction (SCR) to meet the ultra-low levels of emissions.
“The ISB has built an excellent reputation in bus applications since its introduction for Euro 3. It has become the engine of choice for many vehicle manufacturers in this market based on its durability, performance and efficiency. Backed by our technical support capabilities, we have helped OEMs deliver high-quality installations,” added Pattison.
“For Euro 6, we made our product announcement early to alert the market of our proven technology choice. This has given our customers the confidence to move to Euro 6 with us, and positioned us to win new opportunities like this one with Scania,” he concluded.
